Steak 'n Shake

A midwest tradition.  I grew up on this place.  And it's here, in Denver.  Quebec and County Line.  STEAK 'N SHAKE.

My memories of this place abound...and today I got a triple cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle and dash of ketchup.  Shoe string fries.

This place is tough to beat.  It's a TRUE, CLASSIC, DINER-STYLE, GRIDDLE-COOKED, SMASH-METHOD burger joint.  The patties are made from T-bone and sirloin (true steak burgers), and juicy and flavorful.

Eat your heart out, Freddy's.   You are just a sad copy of the real McCoy.

Steak 'n Shake is the REAL deal.  If you are from the Midwest, you'll know what I mean.


  1. When I was a little kid my aunt would come home to St. Louis from KU for Christmas. Even at nearly 55 years old I still remember her scooping me up and taking me ... just me ... to Steak & Shake. What a great memory. What a great, never-changing truly American diner hamburger!

  2. My son works there,before they open the doors to the public they invited the worker's family for a meal. I'm not a hamburger fun, but this is the best hamburger I ever had. Every time I go to eat there I eat a different choice, I had never been disappointed.


Eat well
