Lookin’ for Flat-Top Hot Dogs near you?

4th February , 2020

Shack Shack is known for burgers, but our origins are in hot dogs.

The original concept for Shake Shack began as a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in 2001, founded by Danny Meyer to fund an art exhibit called “I <3 Taxi.’.

The cart sold hot dogs for three summers until 2004, when Shake Shack was born as a permanent kiosk.

The classic Shack Flat-Top Dog

Inspired by his Midwestern roots, Danny’s quest for the perfect dog led him to Vienna Beef, a Chicago-based hot dog manufacturer founded in 1893. Vienna Beef sent samples to Danny and the tasting crew, and the rest is hot dog history.

The delicious Flat-Top Dogs can be found in all our Shacks.

The most famous of these dogs is our Shack-cago Dog®, a flat-top hot dog with Rick’s Picks Shack relish, onion, pickle, tomato, sport pepper, celery and mustard.
