LAS VEGAS (November 13, 2019) – McCarran International Airport (LAS) travelers can now get a taste of Shake Shack, the modern day “roadside” burger stand that got started in New York in 2001 and continues to build a devoted fan base all over the world. Global restaurateur HMSHost, with partner MB Concession, is now serving Shake Shack to McCarran’s Terminal 1 in the Rotunda Area that connects the A and B Concourses.

“Opening Shake Shack in McCarran was a top priority for HMSHost to give Las Vegas travelers one of the leading casual dining experiences available today,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Anthony Alessi. “We thank Clark County and our operating partner MB Concession for making this wonderful enhancement possible at McCarran.”

Shake Shack is known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers and flat-top Vienna beef dogs (no added hormones and no antibiotics ever), 100% all-natural cage-free chicken (no antibiotics ever), spun-fresh frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, craft beer and wine (available at select locations) and more. Shake Shack’s fine dining heritage and commitment to premium ingredients, coupled with its fun and lively environment, has earned the brand a cult-like following around the world.  

McCarran’s new Shake Shack takes advantage of the spacious Rotunda and features an ample seating area where guests can enjoy expansive runway views with a signature Chick’n Shack™ or ShackBurger®. The standalone restaurant mixes angular rooflines, reminiscent of the original Madison Square Park location in New York, with a modern desert palm tree motif.

Shake Shack joins other leading restaurants operated by HMSHost at McCarran for travelers and airport employees to enjoy; visit the HMSHost location finder to see them all.

Since inking a multi-year development agreement in 2018 and with the addition of McCarran International Airport, HMSHost currently operates seven Shake Shack restaurants.
