It seems like we started hearing rumors about Steak 'N Shake coming to Tuscaloosa over a year ago and residents went crazy at the idea!

Well, that rumor is now a reality. A sign that reads, "Coming Soon! Steak 'N Shake," now sits on the edge of a construction site near Cobb Hollywood 16 Cinema, directly in front of Zaxby's off of Skyland Blvd.

Founded in Normal, Illinois in 1934, the company's name has been symbolic of its heritage. The word "steak" represented their signature steak burgers and the term "shake" stood for the hand-dipped milk shakes the restaurant chain would become famous for.

Up until now, Tuscaloosans have had to go to one of the two Birmingham locations or any of the over 10 locations scattered across the state of Alabama to enjoy a Steak 'N Shake meal, but not for long! We're hoping the grand opening happens sooner rather than later but at the time of this article, there is no set open date.
