I enjoy stopping at this restaurant a couple times a month and have always found the staff to be friendly. The food is consistently good and very reasonably priced.

Born and raised a Hoosier, I have been a "New Englander" for 7 years, missing on some of the restaurants that are unknown to the eastern states. Since we were headed west bound for a wedding, the family agreed to stop by a family favorite that is non-existent in the eastern region. Thankfully, this restaurant in particular was able to...

I was hungry at 4AM while driving for Uber. I had no clue what to eat at that time of the morning until I stumbled upon this Steak n Shake. The gentlemen who waited on me looked sleepy and uninterested in waiting on me. It was dirty and the place was not inviting at all, but I went ahead and... More

I grew up loving their cheeseburger and chili. Service struggles here both inside and out. My husband will not order from the drive-thru as you end up inside anyway because they rarely get it right. I went with two other friends this week and there was one server for the whole dining room that was packed at noontime. Our food... More

Before 5pm, a buck and a half for a good milk shake in a glass is hard to beat. Paired with a double burger and fries for 4 bucks and you can tolerate the rather dirty, run-down facility. Oh, use a napkin on the ketchup bottle, they are gross.

We went there two nights in a row. The food is always good. My husband likes to eat and we can both eat there for under $20. This Steak N' Shake was unbelievably fast. We had 2 different waitpersons (Shayne and Dajia) who were both super friendly and very efficient. Both nights our orders arrived within 5 minutes. I could... More

Portobello & Steak burger!! And, any Shake. A long wait in the drive-thru, but the sandwich was worth the wait.
