Roger Ebert on His Favorite Burger Joint, Steak 'n Shake

Robyn Lee 7 comments

Roger Ebert had a deep affinity for Steak n' Shake—he said it's where he'd request his last meal if he were on Death Row and where he'd bring President Obama and his family for dinner if he had the choice. Read his 2009 tribute to Steak 'n Shake, "Car, Table, Counter, or TakHomaSak®," if you haven't already. More

Reality Check: Steak 'n Shake's Jalapeño Crunch Steakburger

Reality Check Todd Brock 10 comments

If you're a fan of Steak 'n Shake's "steakburgers," there's nothing really wrong with this seasonal LTO, but there's nothing really right with it, either. Salsa, mayo, jalapeños, and fried onions meld together into one generic amalgamation of stuff, with no one ingredient all that discernible from the others. More

Robyn Lee 11 comments

If you were wondering who was first in line at the new Steak 'n Shake in New York City to take advantage of their free year of burgers giveaway, there's a nice piece in The New Yorker, "Bright Lights, Cheap Burgers," following the state of the line from the day before opening—the line started to form at 4:30 p.m.—until the next day's opening at 10 a.m. At the front of the line were four students from King's College, followed by two ultra-marathon runners.

Steak 'n Shake Signature Opening Thursday in NYC, Chance to Win a Year of Free Burgers

Robyn Lee 2 comments

Midwest burger chain Steak 'n Shake is opening its first location, called Steak 'n Shake Signature, in New York City this Thursday, January 12, at 1695 Broadway (at 53rd Street, next to the Ed Sullivan Theater; map). Different from most Steak 'n Shakes, the Signature version is smaller, features counter-service instead of table service, and is open from 10 a.m. to midnight instead of 24 hours a day. Menu prices are the same as elsewhere. New additions to the New York menu (viewable here) are a six-ounce Signature Steakburger made with organic beef and beer and wine. More

Steak 'n Shake: The Quintessential American Cheeseburger

Nick Solares 69 comments

I never would have anticipated the profundity of my first Steak 'N Shake experience. The chain's name is derived from its two principal menu items: burgers made—then, as now—from ground round, sirloin, and T-bone; and hand-dipped milkshakes. Three quarters of a century later the chain has more than 500 locations in 22 states and continues to serve burgers using the "smash" technique, which dates back to the origins of the hamburger itself. A Steakburger—primal in architecture and elemental in its preparation—captures the essence and the spirit of the hamburger more than any other that I have had. More
