The shakes were a little thin but tasty great. Our food took a while. I ordered the three mini and fries with each mini a different flavor. Only one mini was correct. I upgraded my fries to Salt and vinegar. These had very little flavor! My sister upgraded her fries to Parmesan Herb-very good!

This franchise Restrauant use to be excellent, but has gone downhill in recent years. "Steak" seems to be a misnomer for ordinary hamburgers. Has not been a good addition to McAlester who prides itself on excellent Restrauants.

Wouldnt eat at this location again. The restrooms were filthy the store was filthy, staff seemed as if my family and I were a bother to them. The only upside to this visit was the speed at which we received our food. I personally love steak and shake but the cleanliness of this store was a solid no stars.

While driving home it was an easy on and off the highway. We were seated quickly by friendly staff. We ordered bacon lovers and regular cheeseburgers. We love their fries. Got a coke to go then back on the road after nice lunch.

We enjoy visiting Steak & Shakes, and spotted the one in McAlister and thought it was new. Cars all around. Walked into to a packed house at 1:30 on a Saturday afternoon. Surprised to learn they had been open 3 years. No wait. Excellent service. CLEAN. And, usual S&S fare. Maybe even better than others we have visited. A very... More

This was about the best steak n shake I have ever had. It was delicous! We had the Frisco melt and they were just as good as they have always been. Liz was our waitress and she did a great job. The bathroom was just a little dirty. We had a great stop in Mcalester though.

After our movie we were ready for a bite to eat and this was perfect. Easy to find, very convenient and prices are great too. One of the many reasons we love traveling. The fun places to eat.
