“Burgers done right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Steak n Shake is a step above the McDonalds/Wendy's/Hardees genre. A waiter takes your order, which is served on real china. Steak n Shake tended to price themselves out of the market about five years ago,until they came up with their $4 burger-and-fries specials a couple of years ago. You can team up their shoe-string fries with either a triple hamburger, a double cheeseburger, or a single bacon cheeseburger. I usually order the double cheeseburger special for $4. They have a coupon flyer in the Sunday paper, which offers more specialty burgers. Their burgers are greasy, seared on a hot grill, and tasty. They also have a number of delicious breakfast offerings, including the cheddar scrambler, a three egg scramble with hash browns. If you're hungry at breakfast, that's the one for you.

“great value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

I ate here a couple of times while staying in a nearby hotel. A notch up from "fast food", as you are seated at a table and waited on by a nicely dressed server.
They had several meal combos for $4 and Iced Tea for $1.
This is OK quality food, BUT...it was served hot and freshly made to order, on real china with real flatware.
For $5 plus tax and tip, this was a great value.

“Love the Shakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Great place for a very reasonable price. Sometimes a little noisy, but the staff are friendly and very accommodating. Tons of choices for food and you Must Have a Shake with your meal.
