This Steak-n-Shake is better than most other fast food options. It does take time to get your order because it is made fresh. The staff is always friendly, unlike other McJoints nearby. The only 2 fast food places I would even consider would be this SteaknShake or Chickfila.

Went for breakfast in this quaint 50's style soda shop known for their burgers and malt shakes. Many choices including all you can eat pancakes for $3.99. Tried their homestyle meal for $5.49. For that you got bacon or sausage, crunchy silver dollar potatoes, your choice of eggs, and either toast, biscuit, bagel or 2 pancakes. The pancakes and potatoes... More

Went to this 24 hour location after a concert (see my Consol Energy Center review); wasn't nearly as busy as expected. Can best be described as a '50s diner themed sit-down fast food restaurant. Possibly the only plate of food I've had that looked like the picture on the menu; said menu is impressive and reasonably priced; I'd gladly pay... More

Stopped here for a very quick lunch on the way to a family funeral and we needed to get in and out as fast as possible. The wait staff were excellent and they took care of us immediately. The burgers were excellent and prepared as we requested. The milk shakes here are outstanding so give them try.

Inside was average, the food was as expected, the wait staff was good, the outside was a COMPLETE DUMP! It was unbelievable how much trash completely covers the parking lot. Literally, trash EVERYWHERE!... More

This location used to be really good but over the years has been going totally downhill. The service is mediocre to none existent, most of the time the food is cold, as you can see the food sitting and sitting and sitting. Lately when we want Steak 'n Shake we will drive to the one in Pleasant Hills.

Generally, I love Steak n' Shake, but this was average. Maybe it was because it was very late at night, I am not sure. There was one waitress handling all the tables and she was very personable, however there was another wait staff member that sat at the counter in uniform playing on their phone and didn't even alert her...

Drive thru is slow, especially during the evening. Food quality is starting to decline a bit as well

OK, it's nothing fancy but the service was quick and friendly, the food was simple but well prepared, everything is clean and neat and the shakes can't be beat. I can't wait until I'm in Steak n Shake country again.

I had lunch here on a Thursday around 1:00. It wasn't too busy, was seated right away. I ordered the cheeseburger melt and fries with a child size banana milkshake (which was the perfect size for me). They had signs up claiming they had fresh made milkshakes from scratch but I didn't think it was...I expected banana pieces in it... More
