Very nice visit, the hamburguer was very good, the fries are special it make me remember one special brand from México (patatinas) you need to try the Nutella milk shake but I liked more the strawberry that my girlfriend order. There is 2x1 from 2 pm to 5 pm excellent .

quick service once you get seated. lots of burger choices with great prices for any wallet. A larger place would be easy to keep filled with customers.

We visited Steak 'n Shake before noon, and waited a bit for a table. Tables were availalbe, but they seemed either short staffed or just slow in bussing the tables. One couple ahead of us left after waiting longer than they wished. When we were seated we were served in an adequate fashion, but one of the shake flavors (the... More

There was 5 of us for dinner tonight. Our waiter was Justus or Justice or however you spell it. Anyway, the first lady showed us to our table almost immediately. But then we waited for almost 15 minutes before the waiter finally came to take our initial order. BUT it did give us time to talk and look over the... More

10 of us met for lunch, the group grew from the initial table seating. Additional tables were easily added. The Frisco melt easy hot, tasted great, and came out quickly. Server adapted well to the changing group size

After long day of traveling had a great meal. Got the bacon burger meal. Very fresh and juicy - French fries crispy. Did not go inside - so can not vouch for that. But outside - clean seemed well kept up. Nice place would definitely return.

Always great service and great food! No matter how busy they are they get it done! You won't find a better Shake anywhere! Likewise with their burgers and fries. No problems here just great food at reasonable prices.

Each year Steak 'n Shake is kind enough to wish me a happy birthday by sending me a free cheeseburger coupon (with fries!) and on our way back from Chicagoland Speedway we always stop at the Rockford (State St.) restaurant. As usual, the meal was fantastic and our shakes were great too. I've been subtly petitioning Steak 'n Shake to... More

Upon entering the Steak n Shake I was warmly greeted and asked if I needed the menu. After reviewing the menu for take out, I was able to get my order in and got the two orders pretty quick. I ordered the Garlic Burger and the Royal Steak Burger. Wait time was no more than 5 or 6 minutes.
