Love their salads. It is an inexpensive place to take your family. Usually can find coupons that help. Lots of different types of burgers and chicken options. A wide variety of milkshakes too.

Went through their drive thru today for a quick lunch. Ordered 1 regular cheeseburger with everything, and 2 with NO mustard. It took much longer than it usually does at other locations - and all 3 had mustard! Hubby wasn't pleased.

Located right by the major mall, this is a great place to stop for a quick burger and/or one of their wonderful milkshakes. Not having any S&S in New Jersey, this is a real treat!

We frequently stop at the Steak 'n Shake for their very thick and delicious milkshakes. They are our favorites while in Bloomington, as well as our five year old grandson's.

Steak 'n Shake, a classic American brand, was founded in 1934 in Normal, Illinois by Gus Belt who pioneered the concept of premium burgers and milkshakes. For over 80 years, the company's name has been symbolic of its heritage. The word "steak" stood for steakburger. The term "shake" stood for hand-dipped milkshakes. Gus was determined to serve his customers the finest burgers and shakes in the business. Today, Steak 'n Shake remains the "better burger" leader, serving premium 100% beef steakburgers, hand-dipped milkshakes, thin crispy fries, and more. Steakburgers are made without preservatives or artificial ingredients, topped with fresh produce, and always hand-crafted to order. Other classics include the Frisco Melt, 7x7, Prime Steakburgers, and fan favorite M&M milkshakes.
