Best restauraunt chain ever.

No contest, Steak and Shake. I LOVE THIS PLACE. And it sucks since I never eat there, the closest one is about four hours away. They don't seem to go much further south than Kansas City or so. When I grow up, I'm gonna eat there all day, everyday. I am so freakin' hungry right now.

Nope.

Milo's.

And if you don't live in the greater metropolitan area of Birmingham, Alabama, tough.

Without the special sauce, their burgers are decent and the fries (salted with "cheese-salt") are damn tasty.

With the sauce?

It's addictive powers rival crack.

(Damn, I'm jonesing for Milo's right now.)

Well, you asked for chains....

Olive Garden! Absolutely no contest there. And it's the only place I eat salad along with my food. Add it with a nice bottle of wine, and it's perfect.

But I tend to like non-chains better anyway, but out of all the chains, that is my favorite.

Melon

'Bubba, you are disqualified!!!!! You can't even follow the rules. It MUST be a chain, regional at the minimum. Some Po-dunk shack in Deliverance, Alabama doesn't count.

Steak 'n Shake.. just partook last night!

double steakburger and a milkshake.. love the dollop of whipped cream and cherry on top!!

They used to be only in the smaller towns in the midwest. Now, they've come to Chicago and you can just about find one anywhere you turn your head!!


Culver's is another small chain, originating in Wisconsin I believe. Very good too, somewhat similiar to Steak 'n Shake.

Ok, I did some snooping and found out that the nearest one to me is about 65 miles in Branson, Mo. And there are 2 in Arkansas but not near me. Oh well, let's read from the official website ( www.steakandshake.com ) to cheer me up:

The Steak n Shake Company currently operates over 380 Steak n Shake restaurants, with over 50 franchised, in 17 states, primarily in the Midwest and Southeast.

What is Steak n Shake? A restaurant. And by that we mean a place where, instead of standing in line to order, you sit down. We serve you from a full menu including chili, melts, salads, soups, and club sandwiches. But we are most famous for Steakburgers.

Why do we call them Steakburgers? Because we can. Steakburgers are made from real steak cuts-- sirloin, t-bone and strip steak-- and grilled a special way to sear in the flavor. Our real-milk Milk Shakes are hand dipped the old fashioned way as we have done it from our start. These are our core items: Steakburgers and Milk Shakes-good enough to name a restaurant after.

Steak n Shake is one of the oldest
restaurant chains in the United States. The first
Steak n Shake opened in Normal, Illinois back in 1934. Then, food was prepared on a grill
out in front of the guest, not hidden in back.
"In sight, it must be right" meant you could be sure your food was cooked the way you ordered it. And we do it the same today. Your food is cooked to order and delivered on china to your table by a friendly server. We do not do what we do for nostalgic reasons, but because for over 66 years we have believed it is the right way to please our customers.

There are over 380 locations in Missouri, Indiana, Illinois, Florida, Michigan, Georgia, Ohio, Kentucky, Iowa, Arkansas, Kansas, Tennessee, North Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, Wisconsin, and South Carolina.

Popkidu2, you went to the Columbus show? Same here. I was gonna go the Steak and Shake close to my house, but was more thirstly than hungry. Steak and Shakes are everywhere in Columbus. I can think of about three that are less then 15min away. Sorry to make the hunger tougher Johnny, but thought I'd share.
