First the “Steakburger”, now the “Steak Dog”. I’m a fan of Steak N Shake, have been for years, even though they never seem to be located in my part of the country, I stop when I am able. My previous forays have been written about here.
This trip a mere dunk in / out as I was making my way across “Main Street USA” (I-80) in Northern Illinois, Joliet to be exact, in search of Jake and Elwood.
The Steak Franks are 100% beef, chunks of sirloin, and are offered in varying styles, including “Chicago” (mustard, diced onions, sweet pickle relish, tomato slices, pickle slice, and sport peppers); “Chili Cheese” (Genuine Chili, shredded Cheddar ’n jack cheese, and diced onions); “Carolina Slaw” (mustard, diced onions, and creamy coleslaw); “Cheesey Cheddar” (grilled onions and smothered with loads of melted Wisconsin Cheddar).
I had a dog and a burger. The dog’s beef flavor is great, one of the best for a skinless. The only downside here was both buns were a bit “dry”. They shouldn’t fall apart.
Steak ‘n Shake makes frequent references on their menu to “Genuine” chili, and I have no idea what that means, do you? BTW, I saw billboards on my trip for S n S offering $3.99 all the pancakes you can eat. Yummers.
Menu online, as is a locator.
