Midwest Living Review
The menu at this Steak n' Shake is no different from any other of the restaurants in this chain. You'll find the typical cheap burgers and fries and thick, creamy milkshakes. It's the building that makes this a fun vacation stop. One of the original Steak n' Shake franchises, this restaurant opened in 1962 and still has its original architecture. It was a popular stop along historic Route 66 and draws visitors today for more than its $5 meals. The restaurant still offers curb service, taking orders and delivering food to your car just like in the old days, a service nearly extinct at Steak n' Shakes elsewhere in the country. Inside the cheerful black and red restaurant displays a lot of Route 66 memorabilia --black-and-white photos of the original restaurant, neon Route 66 signs and old Steak n' Shake advertisements.
