Staff was very unfamiliar with GF needs. Waitress said she was happy to try accommodating us. They do have a dedicated grill for meat and separate one for buns, but NOT for fries/onion rings. We asked for shake to be hand stirred. Food was good, but it required ALOT to get set-up. I would be VERY cautious.
Gogo here! Oh dear me. I went to the Steak n Shake in Lexington KY and I was visiting the city. I had printed off a gf menu from the website and the lady said she couldn't accommodate me. Someone in my party told them that they had advertised gluten free and they were like, "We'll see what we can do." So then, I was only able to eat a steakburger patty with plain raw carrots. So delicious right 🙄🙄🙄? It was okay but if I'm going to a restaurant that is sub par. Then I went to a Steak n Shake in Bristol TN. Me and my friend went and got tea, which was good, but the lady there said they didn't even know what we were talking about! She was sweet and apologetic, just not knowledgeable! DO NOT GO TO STEAK N SHAKE! This place let me down immensely. Just quit advertising if you're not going to offer the product! 🙄🙄🙄 Thanks for reading this review and if you are going to Steak n Shake, just... don't.
Early AM breakfast only: I have been enjoying breakfast 2-3 times a week, just arrive before 9:30. They have multiple griddles so cross-contamination is minimized and haven’t gotten sick after explaining I am “allergic to bread”. While I wouldn't say they are Celiac friendly, they understand and accommodate my request for not only 'no bread' but to not use the same tools with my food as they use to toast buns on the other griddle. I order the home-style breakfast. Eggs, bacon and shredded hash browns (shredded only), no bread.
The burgers and fries are filler free, unlike any other fast food joints! Wa-hoo! Also, this location is a sit down restaurant so they pay closer attention to your order. SO many noms! Just make sure to order the "double" if you're hungry, trust me on this.
Steak 'n Shake is a bit of a challenge, but depending upon your sensitivity, here are a few suggestions: cottage cheese, fries, cheese fries, burgers without the bun, shakes, salads, and sodas. Their breakfast menu is also good if you stick to eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, etc.
I LOVE this restaurant!!! Why? Cuz *unlike* McDonald's, the fries at Steak N Shake *are* gluten-free!!!!!!!!!!! I take off the bun of their steakburgers, and eat them too; NO fillers in the hamburger patties. Also, because I eat low-FODMAP, knowing there are no onions, garlic, or other spices added to the meat that would cause problems...is huge!! They don't have fillers and junk used in their meat; a rarity in chain restaurants nowadays. I'm seeing no problems from eating their burgers without a bun....so I eat their fries with their burgers (bunless).....and it's awesome food!!! Highly recommended.
