Remember the good ol’ days when a trip to Steak ‘n Shake was the highlight of the week? Ah, those were the times! Just thinking about it brings back memories of those delicious steak burgers and hand-dipped milkshakes. Just in case you needed a little reminder, let’s take a stroll down memory lane together.
The hustle and bustle of Steak ‘n Shake in its early days when founder Gus Belt would literally grind up steaks right in front of customers just to show off how fresh their burgers were. And who could forget that iconic slogan, “In sight, it must be right”? Those were truly the golden days of fast food!
Now, fast-forward to the restaurant chain’s rapid expansion in the ’60s and ’70s, Steak ‘n Shake’s classic building on Main Street and Virginia Avenue was rebuilt after that unfortunate fire. Imagine the excitement of new locations popping up across the country, bringing that mouthwatering goodness to even more hungry folks.
Speaking of memories, I can’t help but think of the time I first tried the 7×7 Steak Burger off their secret menu. I may not have finished it in under five minutes like Gus Belt wanted, but boy, was it a delicious challenge!
Oh, and let’s remember Steak ‘n Shake’s impact on inspiring others in the industry! Shake Shack founder Danny Meyer has even said that his childhood experiences at Steak ‘n Shake in St. Louis inspired him to start his own chain of burger restaurants. How’s that for a legacy?
Now, a video perfectly captures the essence of Steak ‘n Shake’s rich history, and it’s just waiting for you to hit play.
