Shake Shack already has four locations in New Jersey, but none of them are really close enough to the Jersey Shore to be worth the drive (Route 17, Paramus; Garden State Plaza, Paramus;  Bridgewater Commons; and Eisenhower Parkway, Livingston).

Now, the company has plans to open up a new spot on Route 9 in Freehold.

The proposed location is at the corner of Route 9 and East Freehold Road, and would replace the closed Getty gas station.

I'm not taking a bold stance when I say I'm a fan of burger joints. I like Smashburger, Red Robin, Five Guys. I got to try In-N-Out when I visited Arizona and every once in a while I get sad that I can't get it out here. I've never tried Shake Shack, but once they open they'll definitely be high on my list to check out.
