SAN DIEGO - Popular burger chain Shake Shack is adding yet another West Coast location, this time in San Diego.

The New York City-based company confirmed that a Shake Shack restaurant will open at Westfield UTC mall sometime in 2017.

In a blog post on the company website, Shake Shack said:

"The Shack's setting up shop at Westfield UTC, a three-level outdoor shopping center in University City. The Westfield UTC Shack, located on Level 2, will offer all the Shake Shack classics, from delicious 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers and cage-free chicken to crinkle-cut fries and spun-fresh frozen custard. Plus, there will be frozen custard concretes featuring local San Diego food purveyors.

The Shack will be constructed with recycled and sustainable materials. Chairs and booths will be made from lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, and tabletops will be made from reclaimed bowling alley lanes from Brooklyn's CounterEvolution.

You stay classy, San Diego!"
