A second visit gave better results. $4 meals a good value.

On the way to an appt, I saw the billboard for $4 meals so we decided to give it another try. There were a number of choices, all either burger, hot dog or grilled cheese and fries for $4. I had the Garlic double burger and my hubby had the nacho cheese double. Both with their skinny fries. I... read more

If your in a rush and like to have a no fuss menu, this is a good choice. Clean inside with fries and hamburger can't be hard to pass up for approximatelt $5.00. This is a good price for what is offered...and order online...open 24 hrs.

If you want a good burger and milkshake, make the trip to Culver's! Steak and Shake is not worth your time or $$$$. The restaurant is NOT clean at all. The food wasn't good or hot when brought to our table. If there was a manager there, I'd like to know where they were. Clearly this establishment needs a complete... More

Steak 'n Shake (not just here) really needs to improve service. We walked in and no one spoke to us. We waited several minutes to finally see the girl who was going to sit us was texting prior to giving us attention, pretended not to see us until another employee finally spoke to us. Then complained about no tables being... More

Today, in need of lunch, my wife and I went to Steak 'n Shake, for a much needed meal. It was a busy place, but the staff was attentive. Our waitress, and I wish I could remember her name, was friendly and prompt in taking care of us, in spite of a full house. I had a steak burger royale... More

Indeed Steak n Shake is a fast food, inexpensive place to grab a bite. We stopped for a quick lunch & waited nearly 30 minutes for our standard burgers & fries which weren't correct. I'll admit that I judge places by their bathrooms - cleanliness #1, in good repair and stocked. There's no reason for dirty floors, a sink area... More

Stopped in with my wife, kids, and in laws for a late dinner. Took about 15 minutes to get seated, and it was mostly empty. The majority of servers seemed to be texting at the prep station. After being seated we were promptly ignored for another 10 minutes or so. We finally placed our order and the salads came out... More

What I like most about Steak-n-Shake is the price. Where else can you get a decent burger and fries for two and spend less that $10? What I like the least about it is the service. It tends to be slow and the employees are usually spending more time playing, talking and using cell phones than they are working, I've... More

Based on a friends experience in another state, I could not wait to go to my local Steak 'n Shake to have a breakfast skillet. He raved about his. I arrived about 9:30 and there was one table with customers, otherwise empty. 2 employees were present. I was greeted and seated, ordered my drink and then tried to pick a... More

My last visit to a Steak and Shake was Janeville, WI in August 2001. I had just wrapped up 4 gruelling days of doing inside and garden area light fixture inventory at over 30 Home Depots distributed throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota. It was 9:30 pm and I hadn't eaten since a donut and coffee at 7:00 am that morning. Yes,... More
