Steak 'n Shake: The facts

Steak 'n Shake is a popular restaurant within the United States. Learn more about the restaurant and its food in what follows.

The restaurant chain

Overview
Steak 'n Shake (short for "Steak and Shake") is a restaurant chain that is found exclusively in the United States.
It is primarily in the Midwestern and Southern states, where the restaurant operates in less of the 50 states in the United States. Steak 'n Shake (sometimes found abbreviated "SNS") is a bit of a hybrid in terms of the dynamics of the restaurant.
For instance, it is commonly seen as a "higher" form of establishment in comparison to fast food restaurants.
In fact, there used to be a time when this was common - and that Steak 'n Shake was a higher-priced alternative - yet today they are quite competitive with fast food restaurants, with regard to prices. The other dynamic is the "feel" of the restaurant, if you will. It is in the style of "diners," which refer to a specific style of restaurant, in regard to the food and the structure (more casual, with a counter and late hours).
True to its roots, most Steak 'n Shake locations are open 24 hours a day.
They also normally have a "drive-thru" window.

Their food

Food
The Steak 'n Shake menu consists of typical American diner cuisine, such as burgers, sandwiches, salads, and other offerings. Their slogan, "Famous for Steakburgers," refers to their signature item, the Steakburger.
It is made from a mixture of T-bone, round, and sirloin steak, and serves as their hamburger/cheeseburger, so to speak. As you might expect from the name of the restaurant, they are also quite famous for their shakes.
They have an impressive assortment of milkshakes, from the classic to new/promotional flavours.
For instance, you'll find strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate shakes along with those that have candy and unique flavours (think less-common fruits, for instance). Side-by-side shakes and other spin-offs are common for Steak 'n Shake as well.

Conclusion

Final word
Steak 'n Shake is an interesting restaurant choice.
If you happen to come across one in the United States, you might enjoy the style and food selection that Steak 'n Shake has to offer. Steak 'n Shake is quite popular and most enjoy what they have to offer.
