The wife and I love an early supper. Service is great. Several college kids working here so I tip a little extra. Ladies take a sweater as it seems it's always cool in side!

I ordered the Hamburger (w/o bun) and had a Raspberry Chocolate Chip shake. I was a little worried it would be too much and keep me bouncing off the ceiling, but it was awesome.

2 business associates and I are here last week. We all had different meals and it came timely, hot and tasty. We were surprised as it was the lunch hour. The help was friendly and quick. If you just need a common lunch. Stop there.

Steak 'n Shake, a classic American brand, was founded in 1934 in Normal, Illinois by Gus Belt who pioneered the concept of premium burgers and milkshakes. For over 80 years, the company's name has been symbolic of its heritage. The word "steak" stood for steakburger. The term "shake" stood for hand-dipped milkshakes. Gus was determined to serve his customers the finest burgers and shakes in the business. Today, Steak 'n Shake remains the "better burger" leader, serving premium 100% beef steakburgers, hand-dipped milkshakes, thin crispy fries, and more. Steakburgers are made without preservatives or artificial ingredients, topped with fresh produce, and always hand-crafted to order. Other classics include the Frisco Melt, 7x7, Prime Steakburgers, and fan favorite M&M milkshakes.
