People in Tuscaloosa have been waiting for Steak 'n Shake to open for quite a while. Well, I'm happy to say that they're HERE!....Kind of.

You see, the actual Steak 'n Shake is still being built, (behind iHop on Skyland Boulevard). However, the Steak 'n Shake Food Truck has been in Tuscaloosa all weekend. (Which works for me because I didn't have to drive all the way to Hoover just to get my Steak 'n Shake fix).

But what is somewhat peculiar to me is the location of where the Food Truck was parked. It was camped out in the vacant lot between Hardees and Taco Bell on Skyland, (where Guthries once stood). The ironic thing is, THIS property has been VACANT for FOUR years! How come the Steak 'n Shake folks are just finding out about THIS property now! Could they not have found out about it SOONER?!

Think about it, had The Steak 'n Shake folks discovered THIS vacant lot four years ago, maybe we would've had one built already! And we would all be enjoying a Steak 'n Cheese sandwich RIGHT NOW!

In any event, we are getting one built now. And soon enough, Steak 'n Shake will be here for good!

Better late than never, right? :-)
