Steak N Shake in Alton was always a late night favorite in high school. There was always this one mean waitress who was always there and seemed to hate every customer, but she had charm. I never liked Steak N Shake fries to be honest, but the frisco melt with a standard chocolate shake (no cherry) is an unbeatable combination.... More

We visit Alton once or twice a year, and usually eat here at least once. It's one of the few restaurants my mother likes. The restaurant is always busy (a good sign), and the food quality is consistent. I usually have a burger and a shake. I really like the shakes.

We wanted something quick but did not want fast food. Restaurant was not different than any others but the waiter we had did excellent and that is the reason for above average. Food was served quickly and correctly.

I enjoy eating here when I'm wanting a cheeseburger. They are very reasonable, but I will say I prefer GB Grill. This is closer and has later hours than GB. It's a nice option for evening hours.

Steak and shake food is pretty good at most any location. My patty melt was good as expected. The service at this location, however needs work.They were very busy, granted, but it seemed like servers were unclear on who was waiting on which table. Our second server did take care of us but you could tell, things were confused that... More

I went here on Thanksgiving with my family of a quick bite while traveling before our big holiday meal. The staff was very friendly despite having to work on a holiday. The food was good and came fast.
