They have a terrific breakfast. The homestyle is the best. Burgers are good. Side salads are good. Fries are good but the quantity is inconsistent.

Frequent here allot for breakfast, probably the best in town. Everything cooked to order. Unfortunately they have become famous for slow service at the greeting/seating station, the table and the cash register. Having plenty of time to observe...it seems they continue to struggle with staffing. The same 2 or 3 hardworking folks are a constant here as others come and... More

We were visiting in Bedford and we like Steak n Shake so we stopped. We didn't stay long. Our family of four waited and waited to be sat. The manager was at the register, but not waiting on anyone...just talking to 2 of his employees who weren't working. It was moderately busy in the restaurant, but there were definitely tables...

I have tried eat-in and carry-out and drive-thru. The results are always the same: s-l-o-w!! I know the theory: Steak and Shake is S-l-o-w because the food is fresh. Well the burgers and fries are cold and the shakes are melted. This applies to Steak & Shakes in general not just this location!!

The food always tastes great here but the service is slow and many times our order is wrong. We were just there day before yesterday and were seated quickly, then forgotten. There were 5 or 6 waitresses standing by the drink area talking. The Manager was there with them. I finally was able to get someone's attention and a young... More

My husband and I finally got around to checking this place out after living in Bedford for a year. Very pleasantly surprised. The burgers and fries were above average and the milkshakes were fantastic! Definitely going back! The service was outstanding!

Six of us ate lunch there about 12:30 pm on a weekday. Place was not real busy. The host did not properly clean the tables she sat us at, the waitress gave us only 4 utensil wraps and was slow to take our order. When our food came, the waitresses gave one of our meals to someone at a adjoining... More

I went in late on a Sunday night. The manager, dressed sloppy, was doing inventory. She stopped to wait on me and we chatted for a moment. The make line was a mess with old food prep containers. The floor needed sweeping. Nothing that I could see in the kitchen was clean and the people working had more time to... More

I absolutely love the food here but the service is so slow! When I was here at least 4 people left because of the very slow service. If you are in a rush, I do not recommend this restaurant.
