Having grown up in an area with a number of Steak 'n Shake choices, and now living in an area with no franchises whatsoever, I always go out of my way to grab a Frisco burger when I get the chance. Today's had to be one of the best Frisco burgers I've had in a long time. So many times... More

I grew up loving the SnS on Main Street long ago. This is a quite good Steak 'n Shake. Burgers and fries are always great. The shakes are creamy delicious. Can't really go wrong no matter what you order. Biscuits and gravy for breakfast with a cuppa coffee -- top notch, almost every single time! I go here every time... More

In this small town not many places open 24 hours. Great hot food served to order. Vast variety of choices. Chilli Mac and the triple steak burger YUMMY. Service is always friendly and fast. Drive Thur service just as good. Real milk shakes.

I went for a late night meal after a class reunion. Steak 'n Shake is the only 24/7 Resturuant in Galesburg. I don't think that I've ever had a bad meal there. I had ordered the Wisconsin burger and fries on this visit. It's tasty, give it a try!

The food is the normal grease drenched burgers and fries you find in a fastfood place. Yet the service was lacking the last few times we went. I was less than impressed with the rude waitress and drive through too!

This place is busy soo the food is always fresh. So much better than McD next door. Prefer their shoestring potatoes and love that they offer diet cherry coke!

Great burgers and shakes. Friendly servers, low prices and better than McD. Big selection of burgers, dogs, salads and much more. The restaurants are clean and well maintained.

Service is normally fast even if it's busy. Shakes take a long time to come, normally come with meal and not before. If you're a Dr. Pepper lover, their's is really good! The drive through takes different amounts of time depending on what you order. A meal might take 10 minutes but a shake takes only a few minutes.

This place is so cool I've been coming here for 40 years and I just love it. Our waitress Rachel did a really good job taking care of our services. The manager Joan was really nice and even come and greeted our table. The food came out hot and fast as it always does

This is my favorite restaurant. It's our tradition to go here when we visit. It's inexpensive, delicious, and great for kids!
