Additional information

Steak'n'Shake, founded in 1934 by Gus Belt, in Normal, Illinois has owned the better burger segment for nearly 80 years. Our Brand strength is demonstrated by U.S. industry leading same store traffic growth over the past four years. With over 550 operating restaurants in the U.S. and opening soon in the United Arab Emirates. The company’s niche is to offer premium burgers at an excellent value and the company’s view of the European market is one that is lacking a gourmet burger chain offering premium burgers at an excellent value.

Steak'n'Shake offers a menu that prepares the finest quality steakburgers, fries and shakes.

  • Their signature steakburgers’ are 100% certified organic with no preservatives, no hormones, no antibiotics – only the top grade of the finest meat.
  • Their hand-cut fries are a customer favourite, with thin and divinely crisp fries which are never frozen and come from the freshest cut of potatoes, rinsed, blanched, par-cooked, cooled, then finally cooked to order.
  • Milkshakes are made the same way they have been for 80 years - all hand dipped, with real milk, combined in a stainless container, blended at our custom shake station, and poured into a tall frosted glass, all topped with whipped cream and a cherry. The definitive quality saw their milkshakes be voted #1 by Zagat.
