If you have not heard of Steak ‘n Shake, it is probably because the majority of their locations are in the eastern half of the United States. Some of the western U.S. is lucky to have a Steak ‘n Shake. Washington, Idaho and Oregon, you are going to have to travel a little to get to a Steak ‘n Shake. The same goes for the 15 or so people that live in North and South Dakota.
If you lucky to have a Steak ‘n Shake in your neck of the woods and were not aware, or have yet to set foot into a Steak ‘n Shake, you need to check out the Steak ‘n Shake 7×7 Steakburger and Fries. Steak ‘n Shake offers this 7×7 for $7.77 and this colossal steak burger includes 7 of their famous steak burgers cooked “smash burger style” with 7 slices of American cheese and a decent sized portion of their fries. For most, this one pound burger masterpiece will either leave you full or staring at the last few bites wishing you could take the rest home with you for later.
I have tried numerous times to recreate the smash burgers that you can find at places like Steak ‘n Shake and Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steak Burgers, but I have yet to be successful.
