We stop in Steak n Shake quite frequently when we want a quick burger with a fabulous shake. They have a wide variety of burgers which are grilled to a yummy flavor. They call them Steakburgers actually, and my husband and I both felt the flavor was a notch above the typical fast food burger. The fries here are shoestring... More

It was a hot day and I drive pass this place a lot in travels throughout the city. I decided to go to the drive thru and get a Mint Chocolate Chip milk shake, no food today. I must say the shake was very thick and very good. Try them out as they have a nice variety of milk shakes.

A bit on the pricey side for the amount of food but it's well cooked, hot, and a nice change of pace.

This restaurant has to be the worst manged restaurant on earth. I pull in the drive thru around 2 am and the guy answers by saying "It will be a minute!". No welcome to Steak N Shake or it will be a few minutes and I'll be right with you. The restaurant is always understaffed and the attitude of the... More

My family ate there several times because they have excellent burgers, fries and EXCELLENT SHAKES!!! They were very inexpensive and had part of the menu where you pick a burger with different toppings and fries all for $4.00. They also had the best French onion soup I have had in a long time. The staff was very friendly and the... More

First and foremost, the restaurant was so very clean!! The wait staff very friendly. The steakburgers were hot and juicy and the fries were crisp. The milkshake was really good!! Plus, they have lowered their prices. Most meals are under 4 bucks! I'll be back...

Busy location , service could have been a little faster. Food was great . Always go out of my way to find a Steak n Shake if I can. Try the dark chocolate milkshake , it's great.

Coupons make this a very inexpensive place to dine. The fries are very thin and thus cool quickly should be eaten first. The shakes are delicious weather you decide upon standards of Vanilla, Chocolate, or Strawberry or get adventurous and get one of the specials and seasonal offerings.

This is if my memory serves me is a chain from the east coast. It offers a decent menu based around milkshakes and their steak burgers. The store on Elsworth never seemed clean during my visits. floor was dirty and greasy. uninspiring
