    Default Steak-n-Shake opening in NYC!!!

    Congratulations New Yorkers! Now you're gonna get to sample what
    really good NON-FastFood is!

    I suggest the Portabella and Swiss Double Steakburger. Best
    Steakburger I've ever eaten, and I've eaten a few!

    Funny, it looks like a regular burger joint to me. How slow is Non-Fast?
    I don't have a lot of time to wait for a burger. Is it faster than a GG
    post? I'm guessing yes and no. :-)

    At least it shows up. I've switched from APN to something else for
    the time being.

    Maybe it is what you get used to. I ate at Steak 'n Shake in Houston,
    and it was okay. George and I ate at one while traveling, and I don't
    think he was impressed. He ordered a burger and chili and they put the
    chili on spaghetti. It was also too salty to eat. Maybe I will try
    them again, though.

    Steak n Shake ain't all that.

    But I do love Winsteads! They are a throwback to the drive-in days. No
    curbside service any more, but the food is the same great stuff as it was
    when I was a kid watching the muscle cars parade through the lot.

    Chili on spaghetti is not the default dish served at any S 'n S I've eaten
    in (many, in 3 midwest states). If you order chili, in my experience, you
    get a bowl/cup of chili. To get chili on spaghetti you order chili mac or
    one of its variations - chili 3-way, chili 5-way, chili deluxe. Also, I do
    not care for highly-salted food and do not find S 'n S chili to be salty;
    perhaps that particular restaurant was having a bad day. It is certainly
    the best fast-food (sorry, that should be "good food served quickly") chili
    I've had.

    I have had their canned chili, usually sold at the cashiers counter, and
    found it to be saltier than I care for.

    Steak-n-Shake's motto is "In sight, it must be right", meaning that
    they cook your steakbuergers right in front of you where you can see
    them (if you sit at the counter.) They do NOT cook them, wrap them in
    paper and put them under a heat lamp just in case you or some other
    pig slop aficionado may happen by with some spare change and then they
    shovel them into a bag and say "Here!" And as their ads explicate,
    Steak-n-Shake is not a WORKaraunt, it is a RESTaraunt! You sit and
    rest while the waitresses do all the work! And your meal is served on
    real china plates, and they make real MILK shakes too, always have.
    Not like the sweetened thickened sugar water many FastFood places ooze
    out of a machine and call a "shake". The most these disgusting cups
    of crap ever had to do with a cow is the truck that bought the cases
    of powdered "shake" mix from the factory *may* have passed a cattle
    car on the highway!

    Steak-n-Shake restaurant play up their 1950's roots in their
    restaurant decor too, but not too much. And they serve "steakburgers"
    which is why they are called that. Look into their history. They have
    always used "all" the cuts of beef to make their burgers. (I quoted
    'all" because I'm sure they don't truly use ALL the parts of the cow!)

    They are not the be-all and end-all of burgers, but I like them and
    they are very consistent in their products. And I DO love their chili
    too!! :-)

    Exactly. Steak-n-Shake makes and serves a thing called "Chili Mac"
    which is essentially chili on overcooked spaghetti (overcooked because
    I guess they keep cooked spaghetti ready and stick it in hot water to
    heat it up when you order a chili mac.) It was a fave of mine as a kid
    and so much so that my mother tried desperately top duplicate it at
    home for me.

    But Steak-n-Shake "chili" is just that, by the bowl or cup.

    And I can't speak to their 3-ways, 4-ways, etc. They always had the 3-
    ways as I can remember, but I always felt "chili mac" was enough for
    me. I suppose others felt others felt otherwise, hence the 4 ways, 5
    ways, etc.

    I just saw on a 5PM local news SHOW that the NYC Steak-n-Shake is
    going to be smaller and not have servers, merely a counter (I assume
    to sit at.)

    KSDK.com.s Live Newscasts are news SHOWS. Emphasis on the SHOWS!
    That's why I write that in ALL CAPS!! KSDK is owned by Gannett, a
    media conglomerate of the Ownership Class:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYIC0eZYEtI

    so they are not terribly interested in delivering the NEWS. They are a
    commercially supported news SHOW!! As evidenced by the fact that they
    take their webcast Live Newscast SHOWS *off* any time there's a
    tiddleywink world championship or whatever on the airwaves.

    (snippage)

    I worked at a Steak & Shake when I was a teenager. It's true they cook the
    burgers as the orders come in. In that regard they're not so fast. And
    they're pretty tasty, but hey, it's a hamburger. And that was definitely
    chili-mac Becca's husband ordered. I remember thinking it was an odd thing
    to have on the menu. I can't comment on saltiness since (a) I haven't
    worked or eaten at a Steak & Shake since the late 1970's and (b) one man's
    salt is another's seasoning. Either way, in a city like New York, Steak &
    Shake is hardly something to crow about.

    If they put it on spaghetti, he didn't order chili, but either chili
    mac or chili 3 ways.
    Those have this crummy ketchupy sauce squirted on too.

    You can get a triple and fries for $3.99, and add a cup of chili for
    $1.25. If you go between 2 and 4 (am or pm), all drinks are half
    price, which makes their milkshakes very reasonable. Dining in is
    only a good idea if you sit at the counter because the people behind
    the counter are usually competent, but the servers are usually
    profoundly stupid. Also, avoid their breakfast fare, which is awful,
    but luckily burgers are served 24/7.

    I had forgotten that Prince Castle restaurants changed their name to
    Cock Robin over the years, as the restaurant equipment business split
    off.

    Little-known fact: Prince Castle developed their own milkshake mixers
    to deal with the mass quantities of ice cream they put in theirs
    (Hamilton Beach could not stand up to the use). Ray Kroc started
    selling Multimixers for Prince Castle, noticed how many the McDonald's
    brothers had bought, and the rest is history.

    Wendy's does that, which is why it's always better to get Wendy's
    chili later in the day. More meat!

    But Steak-n-Shake does not shovel their broken steakburgers into their
    chili (oh, would that they would though!) And as I said, Steak-n-Shake
    is NOT FastFood. Many, including me, love Steak-n-Shake chili. It's
    pretty pricey if purfchased in cans. I prefer to get mine from the
    source! ;-)
