Saw a Lot of Steak 'n Shakes on Road Trip Wisconsin to Florida
But we didn't stop because we were anxious to move on at the time. I have recently found out that we made a major mistake in not stopping at least for one burger. I guess the "steak" part threw me off. This information is from a superb burger website called A Hamburger Today, and so are the pictures. AHT will be recognized as an allusion to Popeye's friend, J Wellington Wimpy, whose memorable quote was "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today."
Unfortunately, though they have over 500 locations they all seem to be on the east side of the Mississippi. Will do my best to rectify the situation the next time we go off to Florida or anywhere east of the Big River. I can even remember one of my brothers pointing out as we were heading out to a Red Lobster for dinner that Steak 'n Shake had good burgers and they put out a fairly decent breakfast as well. But I ignored him, to my later chagrin. Does that look good and plain like burgers and buns should look or what? I love that shininess on the top of the bun. Nothing beats butter.
