    It’s the future of fast food bytes in the Big Apple.

    Robots will replace humans and cash won’t be accepted at a soon-to-open Shake Shack in the East Village, reps for the popular burger chain said Monday.

    Customers will place orders via an app and at touch-screen kiosks inside the restaurant, which is scheduled to open an Astor Place branch later this month, according to company CEO Randy Garutti.

    Workers dubbed “hospitality champs” will guide diners through possible tech glitches as they place orders at the kiosks, which only accept credit cards.

    Diners can also pay on smartphones and tablets using the restaurant’s app

    It was always gonna happen. Thankfully, 50's sci-fi comics got me ready for it. I don't specifically interact in-depth at fast-food places.

    Next it'll be the bigger restaurants. We're there to eat.

    Since a robot can't make lobster-thermidor yet, or other specialty-stuff, humans will still be involved for many years.
