I come here whenever I feel like a fast food burger and fries, but I'm not in a hurry. Sit down service with wait staff is a nice bonus. The food is always good. The service is good. The prices are low for the good quality of the food, and you can always find coupons for even lower prices! Enjoy!

Food was great and was a great value. Tons of choices for appetizers, main course and of course a multitude of shakes.

The food was usual fast food. The shake was terrible. It was runny not thick and it tasted like it had food coloring added, it was mint and it didn't taste like mint ice cream at all. I don't know how they made it.

Week days how can you not beat the 1/2 price shake/malt deals. This takes the sting out of a great burger and fries meal. The fries at Steak and Shake are right up there.

Not a place to have a real meal. The staff is mostly young and more interested in socializing than serving their customers.

My wife and I decided to stop here and get a quick bite. We ordered some hamburgers and then we both got a couple of shakes. The food was good and hot and fresh. Our waitress was very helpful and kind and we were both completely satisfied. We will be coming back here again
