Shake Shack has announced that they'll be launching a brand new burger inspired by L.A. when they open their first shop in West Hollywood this spring.

The popular New York-based burger joint, has been hosting pop-ups around town, teasing Angelenos with previews of their signature, all-natural burgers and crinkle cut fries, and now they tell us they've concocted a special burger just for us. The Roadside Double, as the creation is called, is a double cheeseburger decked out with Swiss cheese, Dijon mustard and onions that have been simmered in bacon and beer (which sounds like how we spent last Friday night).

While we might have guessed that an L.A.-inspired burger would come with the typical avocado topping one has come to expect from a "California" version of, well, anything, we're looking forward to the delicious-sounding variation. As Eater LA points out, the Roadside Double seems to take cues from L.A.'s long-standing love affair with French dip sandwiches, while others might see a resemblance to something served at a certain L.A. burger institution.

Shake Shack tells us that they're still working on the menus for the locations planned for Glendale and Downtown, so we'll have to wait and see if the Roadside Double will make an appearance there.
