I order my steakburgers with the bun really toasted. They advertise toasted buns. Last night the Topeka, KS Stk & Shk served me a steakburger with the bun flattened on the grill with each 1/2 bun no thicker than 1/4 inch. The grill side of each bun was barely toasted, and the topside was soggy, toasting (mashing) on a not hot grill obviously. Then they gave me a bill $7 +, and when I told them it was wrong they corrected it to $4 +. I have gotten well toasted hamburger buns at Stk & Shk many times, and many times the bun is barely on the grill. Really inconsistent quality of making a hamburger, and then being disrespectful to an old man.

Since this is a chain restaurant the food quality is really consistent and tasty. Unfortunately, the service is not. More times than not, my friends and I get a very slow server. The other downside to this particular location is that it tends to fill up at night with loud teenagers and disgruntled employees who would rather not be working the night shift.

PROS: Good food, open 24-hours and they have a drive-through
CONS: Poor service

Message from Steak 'n Shake

Steak 'n Shake, a classic American brand, was founded in 1934 in Normal, Illinois by Gus Belt who pioneered the concept of premium burgers and milkshakes.



For over 80 years, the company’s name has been symbolic of its heritage. The word “steak” stood for steakburger. The term “shake” stood for hand-dipped milkshakes. Gus was determined to serve his customers the finest burgers and shakes in the business.



Today, Steak 'n Shake remains the “better burger” leader, serving premium 100% beef steakburgers, hand-dipped milkshakes, thin crispy fries, and more. Steakburgers are made without preservatives or artificial ingredients, topped with fresh produce, and always hand-crafted to order. Other classics include the Frisco Melt, 7x7, Prime Steakburgers, and fan favorite M&M milkshakes.
