“An American Original :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

If you have not experienced Steak 'n Shake, then you've missed out on an Indiana tradition I grew up with---it is a little pricey, but hey, these are steak burgers, after all! This location on South Third Street is great for drive through, & it can get a little hectic & messy inside at times, but the famous chili, those steak burgers (yes, you can double & triple the patties, & "special order" to your heart's content), & the thick-beyond-belief homemade real milk shakes are awesome, as are the grilled chicken sandwiches! "In sight it must be right" means you can see the grill making your order---& you have a server, too. It's kind of like an updated modern twist on a 50s diner---but it is uniquely Steak n' Shake :)

“Very dirty...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

The floor and tables were filthy. We had ours cleaned again. The service was slow, we had to ask for our drinks, silverware, and napkins. The silverware was dirty. We enjoy Steak n Shakes occasionally but won't visit this one again.

“Fast & Fresh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

I leave for work from the hotel by 5:30 am before breakfast is available at the hotel so Steak & Shake is my favorite spot to grab a burger (I am not a huge breakfast fan) and they make it fast, fresh, and made to order.

The burger was good, I did not like the fries, they did not have any taste and were cold and stale
