Description: Steak 'n Shake, a classic American brand, was founded in 1934 in Normal, Illinois by Gus Belt who pioneered the concept of premium burgers and milkshakes. For over 85 years, the company's name has been symbolic of its heritage. The word "steak" stood for steakburger. The term "shake" stood for hand-dipped milkshakes. Gus was determined to serve his customers the finest burgers and shakes in the business. Today, Steak 'n Shake remains the "better burger" leader, serving premium 100% beef steakburgers, hand-dipped milkshakes, thin crispy fries, and more. Steakburgers are made without preservatives or artificial ingredients, topped with fresh produce, and always hand-crafted to order. Other classics include the Frisco Melt, 7x7, Prime Steakburgers, and fan favorite M&M milkshakes.

No, the food is not "fine dining" - but good value, especially if you have hungry young kids to feed. The hamburger was above average - better than I expected. Although the shakes are supposed to be "number 1 rated," mine was a bit 'thin' and disappointing. No complaints on the service even if the order was a little slow coming out. I ordered a side dish of the soup - unfortunately worst part of the meal. Way too salty.
But overall (including value and service), an "average" experience.

having been there a few times, it takes a HUGE milkshake to choke it down, every single time. Burgers are not juicy if you can see the meat under the dressings.

As soon as we entered the building, a horrific smell overwhelmed us. It was Christmas Day so this was one of the only restaurants open. We were just killing time before our movie started and just ordered shakes. It took forever for them to come out. Our server, Mandy was very sweet and helpful but until the odor is gone we will not be back.

Never eaten at a Steak 'n Shake before, and also first time in the area. It was not our first choice for dinner, but we had a few hungry children and our first choice was a 45 minute wait, so we gave it a try. Not expecting a "Wait to be Seated", but we were seated in about 5 minutes. The server was prompt with taking our order, but not very prompt once served. Our order was delivered in about 15 minutes. The food was fresh, hot and tasty. The burgers were above average, and we really liked the fries and onion rings. The milkshakes were fantastic. Overall great experience this visit.
