Steak ‘n Shake was founded in February, 1934 in Normal, Illinois. Gus Belt, Steak ‘n Shake’s founder, pioneered the concept of premium burgers and milk shakes.
For over 80 years, the company’s name has been symbolic of its heritage. The word “steak” stood for STEAKBURGER. The term “shake” stood for hand-dipped MILK SHAKES. Gus was determined to serve his customers the finest burgers and shakes in the business. To prove his point that his burgers were exceptionally prime, he would wheel in a barrel of steaks (including round, sirloin, and T-bones) and grind the meat into burgers right in front of the guests. Hence arose the origin of our famous slogan, “In Sight It Must Be Right.”
After 80 years, they are continuing Steak n Shake’s tradition of serving the country’s best, freshest, and tastiest burgers and shakes.

Went with my wife on our trip in July and had so much fun. Our waitress was so friendly making sure our glasses were never empty and that we had everything we needed. She was quick to recommend some fun things to do when my wife asked. Will be back again this year and will stop in for our favorite place
Very nice and comfortable place to stay. It was quiet and a nice place to unwind. We came down from Osage beach MO on a spur of the moment and were lucky to get a room here. The staff was so pleasant and got us into a room right away. Would stay here time and time again!
