The DC Burger War Rages On In Dupont

The gourment hamburger race all over D.C. has been going on for months now, and yet another new party is ready to enter the fray.

Shake Shack, a New York City based burger joint, is set to move into 1216 18th Street in Dupont. The space, which used to be home to Fuddruckers, is just a block away from Dupont Circle hamburger favorites Rogue States, and about three blocks away from BGR Burger Joint.

Scheduled to move into their DC location some time in 2011, Shake Shack will serve griddle-prepard burgers(which flame-grilled establishments like Rogue and BGR will almost certainly scoff at), dogs, those tasty Nathan's-style rigged fries, as well as shakes.

It will be interesting to see how Shake Shack stacks up against its new Capital city competition.  Not only will it have arguably the best Ray's Hell Burger across the river in Rosslyn, but it will also have Rogue States and BGR as its neighbors.
