Enhance your suburban burger experience with some help from Shake Shack. For a very limited time only, from June 6–15, all three Philly-area locations of the luxe burger joint (King of Prussia stop included) will debut the epically gastronomical, Carbonara collaborative burger.

The righteous 100-percent, all-natural Pat LaFrieda Angus beef burger, crowned with bacon, pecorino, sunny-side-up egg and black pepper, was co-bred by Philly all-star chef Marc Vetri and Shake Shack’s culinary director Mark Rosati. The notorious Vetri, an Italian food-focused chef by trade, when approached by Rosati, revealed that the first dish that inspired the burger collaboration was hearty pasta carbonara—a simple dish packed with bold, rich flavors.

The first-ever Shake Shack chef collab burger hits countertops with a charitable slant, too. For every Carbonara burger sold, available at $6.75 a piece, a dollar will go to The Vetri Foundation to further its mission to help children experience healthy living and eating.

Snag your share of this exclusive, beefy bite in King of Prussia (160 N. Gulph Rd.), Center City (2000 Sansom St.) and University City (3200 Chestnut St.). More information is available at
