The burgers are great and inexpensive. Almost all burgers $4 with fries. It is light years beyond the major chains in terms of quality. It tastes like a burger. Good milkshakes too. I recommend the cajun seasoning on the burger.

The food was great and it came pretty quick for 7 pm on a Saturday. The atmosphere was good even though the tables were close together.

Food -OK. Service was slow and horrible. Our large group stopped in today. The waitress was slow. The food came out at odd intervals. I understand that this is really fast food, and they're used to serving small parties, but someone should have taken some effort to make our meals enjoyable. The manager should have helped out the waitress, or... More

I'm not normally one to leave a bad review, but this one is deserved. Aside from the terrible food, the service was unacceptable. We came in late at night, and the couple who ordered AFTER us got their food first. After waiting about ten minutes for two burgers and two shakes, the cook asked who took our order. Apparently our... More

My steak burger with cheese was thoroughly cooked, topped with lettuce tomato mustard and ketchup. The bun was soft (I haven't asked them to grill or toast it). The shoestring size fries were golden brown and hot. This is a good example of the American Drive-In and from other visits in GA, IN and IL you can count on great... More

This Steak-n-Shake is better than most other fast food options. It does take time to get your order because it is made fresh. The staff is always friendly, unlike other McJoints nearby. The only 2 fast food places I would even consider would be this SteaknShake or Chickfila.

Went for breakfast in this quaint 50's style soda shop known for their burgers and malt shakes. Many choices including all you can eat pancakes for $3.99. Tried their homestyle meal for $5.49. For that you got bacon or sausage, crunchy silver dollar potatoes, your choice of eggs, and either toast, biscuit, bagel or 2 pancakes. The pancakes and potatoes... More

Went to this 24 hour location after a concert (see my Consol Energy Center review); wasn't nearly as busy as expected. Can best be described as a '50s diner themed sit-down fast food restaurant. Possibly the only plate of food I've had that looked like the picture on the menu; said menu is impressive and reasonably priced; I'd gladly pay... More

Stopped here for a very quick lunch on the way to a family funeral and we needed to get in and out as fast as possible. The wait staff were excellent and they took care of us immediately. The burgers were excellent and prepared as we requested. The milk shakes here are outstanding so give them try.
