I had to go thru the drive thru to replace my food order. You would think that they would replace the whole meal but they did not. I called corporate twice but they did not respond.

Like most Americans, I love hamburgers, and you can get some great ones at Steak 'n Shake, especially considering their reasonable prices. Their shoestring french fries are better than what I've had at other fast food restaurants, as are the milkshakes.

Taking grandkids here for years. They love the ability to make their own decisions. The service is good and the 1/2 price Shakes in the afternoon make it a special place. They must have 30 different ingredients for the perfect individualized shake with real ice...cream.More

Stopped in around 8 pm on a Saturday night. Place was busy and seemed to be understaffed. Server was very sweet. We were informed that they were out of chicken tenders and pinto beans. Opted for the chili beans and found them to be mostly...watered down chili sauce. The wait time for our food was long so my grandson declared we were at "steak and wait."More

Went here for lunch and ordered a patty melt combo. Received a single burger with American cheese on rye bread, no thousand Island dressing and raw onions. Fries were also cold and hard. Food tasted very mediocre.

We were very hungry at 10:00 pm and went to grab few bites. The menu has variety of cheap burgers ($5.99) with lots of fries. The burgers are not bad considering the price.

We ate here last week and the food was mediocre. It was served hot in generous portions. But crawling on the wall of the booth, right nect to me, was a disgusting cockroach! Showed it to our sweet but slow-moving server. She apologized, took it...in the napkin to dispose of it, and never offered any discounts or free meal. I should have mentioned it to the cashier when paying but all of us, including 2 pre-schoolers, were just anxious to leave. The place I've been to in Florida was clean, busy and well run. We were only one of 3 filled tables in Charlotte. Now i know why. Dirty with mediocre to poor service. Oh yes, our shakes were not served till the burgers and chicken were done. Now that is SLOW service.More

If you need a great burger fast, these guys are always consistent. I get the double with cheese and is always done right.

I asked the waitress where I could find on the menu a SINGLE cheeseburger meal. I told her I hadn't been to Steak 'n Shake in a while, but that's what I used to get. She said that due to the (smallish) size of the...meat patties, a double burger is now what most people order. So... I ordered a double cheeseburger meal... which, as usual, was VERY tasty. I suppose I shouldn't quibble about a few extra calories, since besides the fries, I also ordered a cup of chili (good!) and a banana milkshake (yum!)More

Easy on the wallet and great in the stomach!! Would recommend to any burger lover. If you see the couple in the back with locs and two kids make us leave before I gain 100 pounds. Im gonna fill out an application and get mine...straight off the grill.More
