Steak n Shake

Steak ‘n Shake is a 50’s diner-style burger chain located in the Mid-West and Southern U.S.  It can be considered fast food, as most restaurants have a drive-thru, but you could also dine inside if you’d like.  Steak ‘n Shake is most known for the “Steakburger” which is a mix of sirloin, t-bone, and strip steak as well as their “hand-dipped/real-milk” milkshakes and malts. This particular visit, I decided to have an original Steakburger with cheese and a side of french fries.  The wait time is only about 5 minutes, and you can watch the cooks grill and prepare you food for you behind the counter.

The cheese looks  plastic and delicious.. just how I like it.

Burger Ratings:

Burger:  6

The burger comes with whatever toppings you’d like and can be served as a single, double, or triple. The patties are very thin (think Wendy’s or McDonald’s), but they are flavorful and juicy. The bun is buttered and lightly toasted, and for what it is, I think it’s pretty good.

Side: 7

They offer shoestring french fries, lightly fried to be a nice crisp golden-brown.  If you aren’t that into shoestring fries, you can instead opt for a salad, soup, baked beans, cottage cheese, onion rings, chili, or coleslaw.

Environment: 7

The overall look and feel of a Steak ‘n Shake is a 50’s style diner. It’s kind of weird to be eating fast food on a plate, with forks and knives, and with wait-staff, and then also tipping. I feel like they would benefit more if they got rid of the servers and instead let you order and pay up front, pick up your food, and bus your table like any other comparable burger restaurant. Regardless, the place is really clean, the staff are friendly, and the decor is nice.

Value: 9

The value found at Steak ‘n Shake is incredible. Another bonus:  They’re also open 24 hours a day. Steak ‘n Shake is a great idea if you’re in the mood for something quick and cheap.
