No surprises here but great location. Overall a good value for a drive through fast food restaurant.

“Great Shakes!”

I enjoy lunching at Steak n Shake with friends. Prices are reasonable, service is good and they have the best milk shakes in Decatur

“Good food with a classic diner feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

We find this as a very nice place to eat, either with friends or the family. They have several "deals" that we see as a good value at $3.99. Overall, the service is good at we really like the classic diner feel of this place. The inside is bright and clean. The shakes, of course, are a great way to top off a meal!

If you've never been, this is not a fast-food "order-at-the-counter" place. This is a sit-down restaurant with waiters and waitresses serving you.

“Our favorite place in Decatur, AL”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

After shopping at the JCPenney Outlet store on the beltway on Saturday, we stopped in to this Steak n Shake and treated ourselves to their special milkshakes. We usually get them at half price during their 2:00-4:00 "happy hour." But we found out that does not apply on weekends, just weekdays! So we paid the full price. We live and learn. Anyway, we thought the service was great, and so were the shakes! Their corporate website is steaknshake.com

“food was good, service sucked”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2012

so i went in with my friend and we were seated right away. they were busy but not slammed. my waitress just seemed to be overwhelmed. i actually had to get up and find somebody to refill my tea. she never checked on us, it was so bad, i was going to order my husband lunch to go, but it took me so long to get some attention that i said screw it. when i paid, i told the manager what all happend, and as i pointed out the waitress, he watched her talking at the soda machine complaining about her boyfriend. i have not been back yet.
