Route 51 is to North-South what Route 66 was to East-West. It was a historic and fabled highway that many blacks took from Mississippi and Louisiana in the 1920s and 1930s to find jobs and begin new lives in Chicago. Recently, my wife and I drove along Route 51 in Illinois, through old towns such as xxxx and xxxx and xxxxx. We stopped at an Olive Garden in Decatur and a Steak 'n Shake in Forsyth. Forsyth? There isn't even a Steak 'n Shake in Chicago. However, since Steak 'n Shake was founded in Normal, Illinois, in 1934, I suppose it makes sense that Forsyth has a franchise. It's like home cooking, a friendly gathering place for high school football and basketball fans. Everybody orders Original Steakburgers, the most popular item on the menu, two hot-off-the-griddle steakburgers with American cheese, lettuce, pickles, tomato, onion, ketchup and mustard on a toasted bun with the signature thin and crispy fries. Wash it down with a chocolate or strawberry or banana milk shake or an orange freeze. Folks in Forsyth also like Chicago-style hot dogs.

Wonderful meal ... and we were there after 2 for our lunch so we got our shakes for half price. We had great service, and the food was good, as we always expect at Steak n Shake.

Food was very good as always at steak and shake. Service was also very good. This restaurant is a little worn; seats are in need of repair, bathroom didn't look too good.
I think this facility needs a little TLC.
