I had low expectations for a steak and shake because I always go through the drive thru but I was blown out of the water. We had Ian as our server and he was fantastic! I had a Frisco melt

Servers are friendly but overtaxed. Kitchen staff is working to capacity but can't handle 'special orders' even if it's something simple like 'no ketchup'. Most if the menu is pretty OK 'diner food'.

Had the Original Steakburger with fries and a Cherry Coke. Love the fact the Cherry Coke has the cherry added to the drink. Service was great and food was hot when delivered to the table. Try to eat here everytime I visit the area.

We were seated immediately and staff was super friendly. After we ordered the food came within five minutes. It was delicious. I would definitely pick steak and shake over any fast food restaurant. They have a large variety of items on their menu and their shakes are to die for. Alyssa S was our waitress and she was spectacular! Thanks... More

My in-laws ate here when they were dating in the late 40's and it's still going strong! Offers a wide menu of burgers, fries, sandwiches, etc. Their milkshakes are the best around, especially during happy hour when you can get them half off. If you've never been to Steak n Shake, make you you stop in and enjoy the food... More
