This restaurant was located with walking distance from the hotel where I was staying. It took several minutes for the waiter to greet or acknowledge me. When I told him I was placing an order to go he took me to the registers to begin putting my order in. At this time he acknowledged another customer who had been waiting... More

We always try to stop at Steak n Shake when we are in Illinois. We got there on a Friday night, late and it was busy. There was a debate team doing a mock trial and they were all eating there. We had a waitress I wish I could remember her name but she reminded me of Wanda Sykes. She... More

We saw these all over on our recent road trip and didn't try one until our last night of traveling. We initially tried it because it was right next to our hotel and I am very glad I did.

Our waiter was attentive and did a great job with our special requests. He came back frequently to check on us. The cook also took note of our special requests and did an exceptional job. This was the best experience we have had at a Stean 'n Shake in years.

What can I say, $4 for a burger and fries. Usually fast service even though they make burgers fresh according to order. I use a phone app to pay for meals and get free perks from time to time.

Yes, we know it's a chain type place but we love it! It's a real treat as we don't have any near us. The food is great! The servers are friendly. Prices are reasonable. Can you ask for much more?!?

I visited the drive-thru and despite the amount of cars, moved through the line surprisingly fast! I ordered onion rings instead of fries and they were amazing! Fresh, hot and made to order!!

Picking up dinner for hubby. We love steak and shake. Drive thru is always slow....hence 4 star not 5. Friendly service. His chili 3 way and thin and crispy fries are his favorite. Love the milk shakes. Kinda high for fast food but a B/N classic!

I had chili 3 way. It was great. Waitress was very attentive and kept my glass full. My wife had the double cheeseburger and fries and it was good. Prices are a little high.
