Danny Meyer's Shake Shack empire just keeps growing, with only two months until the opening of its first Brooklyn location. Now, news is Meyer will open a shack on Long Island by late 2012.

The Westbury spot will be located at 900 Old Country Rd., off Meadowbrook State Parkway. No word yet on what their location-specific food menu will contain, but a representative for Shake Shack said that they'll start working on concretes for the Long Island spot in about a year. At least now, suburbanites no longer have to travel to the city for their gourmet fast-food cravings.

Shake Shack also has locations in Washington D.C.; Saratoga Springs, N.Y.; Miami, Fla.; Westport, Conn.; and Dubai.
