This was a very pleasant experience. The service was wonderful and the food was delicious! The hamburgers were flavorful and I had the cole slaw instead of fries, which was also delicious. They also specialize in shakes. I didn't try one, but they look amazing.

First the wait staff was VERY NICE but, the place is filthy. Changed tables three times, each one hadn't been washed. After pointing this out I would have expected a cleaning immediately but no such luck. Next call, Health Dept.

Food and Milkshakes are good, waiters are friendly, but the wait time, don't get me started on it! The day I came here which was not to long ago, everything was fine, the person who was taking our orders was nice, and me and my husband ordered two salads with two milkshakes, that's it! We wait, we see this family... More

This is supposed to be a fast food establishment with a sit down dining room but there is nothing fast about this location. I have visited this location a number of times but over the past year or so it appears that the staffing could use some polishing. When going through the drive-thru they never give you a chance to...

Steak and Shake is definitely not hiring top level employees for their locations. Went through drive through for a large unsweetened ice tea. The drive thru either has a terrible microphone or the woman manning it was incompetent. First, I was told they were out of large cups. Then, after repeating my order for regular three times with the response... More

I love a place where my family of 6 can dine out for under $20. It is not the best food, but its not bad. The kids love their happy hour shakes.

Half price happy hour for milkshakes mean half quality shakes. I ordered the turtle milkshake. It was pretty much melted and had just a trace of any other ingredients. Also the malt that was ordered was basically chocolate milk with crushed ice it it. Nothing like it normally is. I would say to avoid the "happy hour" you won't be... More
