Forest Hills is shaking it up.

Shake Shack, the critically acclaimed “roadside” burger stand that has locations throughout the United States and the world, announced Monday that it will be opening a new location in 2016 at 71-26 Austin St.

This is the second stand-alone Shake Shack slated to open in the new year in the “World’s Borough,” as the company announced in June that a location would be coming to Queens Center in Elmhurst.

“It feels good to continue to deepen our footprint in our hometown of NYC,” a Shake Shack representative said.

Shake Shack also has opened sites in JFK Airport and Citi Field.

The establishment is known for its 100 percent all-natural, antibiotic-free Angus beef burgers, crinkly cut fries and much more.
