Mmm...Steak & Shake....

Dh has vacation days that he has to take or loose. So Friday he took the .5 day off. Since it was a date night and i had to work, we went on a lunch date. On the way home from work he noticed there were a lot of cars parked outside of steak and shake. So we decided to check it out. There were people coming and going. We decided to go in to make sure. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and she took us to our booth. Our waitress was still training and mumbled a lot! Her trainer was much better. After i almost spilled my shake, dh ended up spilling his. (the glasses were rather slick) Two managers happened to be sitting at a table across the isle from us and quickly jumped up and helped clean up the spill and got dh a new shake! Later another employee came by and was talking to me. i asked her when they opened!? she said they weren't actually *open* yet! The *official* opening is today (Monday) She said they were doing training this week and were open for a few hours at lunch to help prepare the employees for being open 24 hours a day starting Monday. She said they didn't tell anyone they were open, it was spread by word of mouth. The kids were mad that we didn't take them! lol They want to go for milk shakes today! But....




I have to work.......

My first encounter with Steak & Shake was with Pastor & Mrs. L. in St. Louis. We had a great time and I had a really good burger. Another time Rick and I went to one out of townand we had a really great server/manager. Seems like they have a good thing going--And the yummiest shakes!

Yum...Steak & Shake! Glad you had a nice time with your husband. Word of mouth about a Steak & Shake opening spreads quickly, doesn't it? lol!
