This location used to be really good but over the years has been going totally downhill. The service is mediocre to none existent, most of the time the food is cold, as you can see the food sitting and sitting and sitting. Lately when we want Steak 'n Shake we will drive to the one in Pleasant Hills.

Generally, I love Steak n' Shake, but this was average. Maybe it was because it was very late at night, I am not sure. There was one waitress handling all the tables and she was very personable, however there was another wait staff member that sat at the counter in uniform playing on their phone and didn't even alert her...

Drive thru is slow, especially during the evening. Food quality is starting to decline a bit as well

OK, it's nothing fancy but the service was quick and friendly, the food was simple but well prepared, everything is clean and neat and the shakes can't be beat. I can't wait until I'm in Steak n Shake country again.

I had lunch here on a Thursday around 1:00. It wasn't too busy, was seated right away. I ordered the cheeseburger melt and fries with a child size banana milkshake (which was the perfect size for me). They had signs up claiming they had fresh made milkshakes from scratch but I didn't think it was...I expected banana pieces in it... More

The food and service are very good. The prices are very reasonable. The milkshakes are sooo good!!! Very close walk from Holiday Inn Express. We ate dinner and breakfast here. The pancakes are good. The burgers are delicious.

Stopped here late night on our way back to the Holiday Inn, which is directly beside this restaurant. Both the drive-thru staff and the counter staff were nice and the food is always good here (chili five-way minus onions is too good and the salted caramel milkshake was to die for). Excellent for late-night.

Had lunch here one day and the small steak sliders were excellent. The price was very reasonable and the place was neat and clean.
