Los Angeles will be getting a third Shake Shack soon, so your friends from the East Coast are going to get even more annoying about how they think In-N-Out is overrated.With two locations already opening in West Hollywood and Glendale this year, Los Angeles city itself will be getting one within its own borders in downtown L.A. According to DTLA Rising, the New York-based burger chain will take over the corner of 8th and Hill streets, in a space currently occupied by the 801 Hill Nightclub.

Anticipation has been building among Angelenos, whether they're the New York natives who miss their frozen custard and crinkle-cut fries, or the Californians who are curious enough to try and confirm that In-N-Out truly is superior.

Shake Shack has been on a major expansion lately, spreading across the country and setting up shop in 9 other countries. However, Las Vegas is the furthest west they have gone until the West Hollywood and Glendale locations open this year.

Downtown's Shake Shack is scheduled to open in 2017. If you can't wait, Shake Shack will be having a pop-up at Son of a Gun later this month.
