The former Fuddruckers near Lovers Lane and Greenville Avenue in Dallas will become a Shake Shack, The Advocate reports.

A location there makes it easy proximity to people who live or work in University Park, Highland Park, the M Streets, Lakewood and Lake Highlands. That's a lot of Dallas neighborhoods.

What's the deal with Shake Shack? An explainer for hungry Dallasites

Shake Shack will replace Fuddruckers, a family-friendly burger joint that had been in the neighborhood for more than two decades. That restaurant concept was, notably, started by Dallas restaurateur Phil Romano. Fuddruckers appears to have nine operating restaurants in North Texas, according to its website.

Shake Shack is a popular burger and custard restaurant that's fairly new to Texas. The first Shake Shack landed in North Texas, in Uptown Dallas, in fall 2016. Dallas-Fort Worth currently has five Shake Shacks, in Uptown Dallas, Plano, Preston Hollow, Las Colinas and Southlake, not counting the new one inside DFW International Airport.

According to reporter Carol Toler's story in The Advocate, the new Shake Shack on Greenville Avenue in Dallas will open in May or June of this year. 

Update on Feb. 15, 2019: A Shake Shack representative responded to our queries a week after this story was published. The Shake Shack near Greenville Avenue and Lovers Lane will be about 3,000 square feet and will feature a mural painted by the artist Mr. Kiji. The restaurant will also have a patio.
