Shake Shack Officially Opening on Thayer on Wednesday

The famous burger and shake restaurant launches its first Rhode Island location in Providence.

The restaurant is located at 249 Thayer Street in College Hill, which will probably see a long, winding line down the block next week filled with patrons seeking out the famous burgers and shakes that became all the rage in New York City in 2004.
