Steak ‘n Shake

royale steakburger - a classic
Founded by Gus Belt in 1934 in Normal, Illinois. Gus pioneered the concept of freshly made premium burgers. He followed it with a hearty milkshake. Gus used only the best prime meat, which he took into the kitchen and ground in front of his customers. His slogan was “In Sight It Must Be Right.” The firm is still going strong, with lots of outlets across the USA.
