My favorite thing about Steak ‘n Shake is that it’s open 24 hours. It’s unfortunate for me that the nearest one is about a good 30 minutes away. When they’re on, they’re absolutely awesome but when they’re not, it can be some of the worst food you’ve ever had. I found myself eating here on an “iffy” nights. I had no Fries at all because I don’t care for them so I had Onion Rings. They were nothing special. I started off the festivities with a Hot Dog.
They’re split in half and cooked on the flat top. It was good but not great. I asked for Cheese and Grilled Onions on it but in retrospect maybe Grilled Onions and Mustard would have made a more dynamic combination. It had been while so I figured I’d also try out their “Cheesy Cheddar Steakburger”.
That was a no go for me. It was flat and flavorless, kinda sad because the slice of Cheese got me excited when I saw it served up. As for the Melts? Well, the real reason I came here is because I’ve been obsessed with Patty Melts as of late.
So I wanted to have a Frisco Melt: Buttery & Toasted Sourdough Bread, 2 Steakburger Patties, American and Swiss Cheeses and Frisco sauce. I was totally indifferent to this Burger. I didn’t hate it and I didn’t love it. If it was on a sinking ship, I’m not sure if I would save it.
The Patty Melt was: Buttery & Toasted Rye Bread, 2 Steakburger Patties, American Cheese and Grilled Onions and was better. It wasn’t the best Patty Melt I’ve ever had but it’s up there in the top 1/3 percentage, which is not too bad considering everything else.
