For what feels like an eternity, the forthcoming Steak 'n Shake—Seattle's very first—has been teasing passers by with its tantalizing Third Ave facade and promises of Frisco melts and steakburgers. After announcing a May 16 debut, the hallowed day came and went with lights out and nobody home, with franchisee Joe Fernandez saying he'd probably open sometime next week.
Well, mark your calendars because it's official. Seattle's first Steak 'n Shake will open Wednesday, May 25. We've been assured the new "urban" concept of the Midwest chain will serve classics like the original steakburger, melts, chili fries, and chili steak franks (but not the Chili 5-Way). Also look out for the new 6oz signature burger.
