As far as I know, this is the only Steak ‘n Shake in New York City. A friend from the midwest was extolling the virtues of this place so I decided to give it a try.
Steak ‘n Shake is another slightly higher end hamburger place. Think Shake Shack, In and Out, Five Guys, etc.
This specific location was kind of small, but there is seating. Service was noticeably nice, which I generally don’t notice at fast food places.
They sell burgers with fries, but they don’t come with a drink. I think that’s to encourage you to get a milk shake. I ordered the classic double cheeseburger with fries which is around six dollars. I also got a small mint oreo milkeshake for four dollars. Everything was pretty good. The fries weren’t amazing.
Overall, if I were to compare this place to its competitors, this place ranks about at the level of a Five Guys, maybe less. Shake Shack still easily has the better burger, better fries, and better milkshakes in my opinion. The prices at this place are competitive though.
