Description: 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.

Completely disappointed. We arrived at 6:20 on a Sunday and it was about 1/3 full. We were seated quickly. Then we waited 14 minutes to place our order. The server finally brought our waters and tossed a spoon for our shake on the table. Gross. The Oreo shake came and had banana flavoring in it. Gross. The next time we saw the server was for the food delivery. We asked for a replacement shake and there was no fuss. But there was that spoon toss again. Second shake, burgers, and fries were really good. Check came and we went to the register. Where we waited ten minutes without being acknowledged before we laid cash on the register and left. Food was good. Everything else makes us go somewhere else next time.

Thus is the second Steak n shake we tried , using our coupons, in a week. The first, we chose to leave after 30 minutes of not being served, the one in Ocala was more amenable..we were seated quickly and our server was prompt. That's where we ran into a 40 minute wait to get our burgers, which were good. I asked why it took so long...I as told that they were all made to order..that's great...but the drive in cars came first and we were on a waiting list. Sorry...last time we'll eat there.

Drive thru and eat in are very slow, not always because of the number of patrons. This place stinks, garbage, sewer backup, spoiled food, I don't know but it's bad.
We're are not locals but travel to Ocala frequently, we have marked this place off our list. Have eaten in many Steak "n Shakes, always high marks, but not this particular one.

Take out. 10pm, weekday night. Guy lost my meal and then tried to tell me how busy he was. Not how a manager is supposed to handle these things. It’s no better or worse than anyone else’s cheap burgers. Really. Only reason to go is for Shakes and Fries.
Really. And only if they don’t screw up the order.

If you are looking for an inexpensive, great lunch this is the place. The burgers are just the right size so that you never feel like you are overwhelmed by your burger. The fries are hot and delicious. The service is always pleasant. They also serve breakfast and around 2 pm is "happy hour" for their amazing milk shakes. This is our go-to place
