“Good burger and nice grill time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Steack n shake is a traditional family restaurant in USA. This place like a road restaurant offer you a good quality burger or a nice grill time. At the half of day it's a good restaurant but this is not a romantic place at night.

“Keep driving past this option”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We had been on the road for 8 hours and got hungry at about 9:30 pm and was looking for a place to sit down and eat. It appears that all sit down restaurants in Lafayette Indiana close at 9 or earlier on a Sunday, so the Steak and Shake was the only option besides a McDonalds. We should have chosen the McDonalds. The kids working at this location did not care if there were customers, they were playing around and rude. Our food sat in the heat lamp window for about 10 minutes and we had to tell our waitress that our food was up there and we would appreciate if we could get it so we could get back on the road. It was cold and greasy. We took a couple of bites and left without tipping and went across the street to the gas station and picked up coffee and a couple pieces of fruit and got back on the road. The Steak and Shake restaurants use to be good, but it appears they are trying to cut costs by hiring kids without any work ethic so they do not have to pay much.

“Consistent burger joint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Although they've expanded their offerings through the years, tried new things, we keep coming back for the burgers, fries, and shakes. You can expect that to be done consistently: the burgers are pressed on the grill, the fries are crispy "shoestring" type, and the shakes are hand-dipped, thick and creamy. We like to support it over the bigger chains.
