Steak 'n Shake, the popular casual restaurant chain, plans to open its first Chicago location in June 2018 at University Village Maxwell Street, a shopping area that offers a variety of restaurants, retail shops and services on the south end of the University of Illinois at Chicago campus. The fast food chain will be located at 1322 S. Halsted St. and will be open Sunday through Thursday 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. For more information on Steak 'n Shake, visit their website at http://www.steaknshake.com.

Steak 'n Shake will serve breakfast and classic menu items, and feature specials such as their meals under $4. Along with the chain’s premium milkshakes, the location will also serve beer and wine.

As Steak 'n Shake’s first Chicago franchisee, Melvin Buckley was previously the Owner/Operator of McDonald’s around the Chicagoland area, in locations like South Chicago Heights, IL and Richton Park, IL. Having an expansive knowledge in the fast food business, Buckley is excited for this new endeavor.

“Our goal is to expand the university’s campus and make the brand the most sought after in Chicago,” said Buckley. “I’ve been a part of this business for over 18 years, so I bring a lot of experience and knowledge to the opening and brand."

Steak 'n Shake joins the outdoor shopping center with dozens of restaurants, taverns, retail outlets, and service shops in the family-friendly destination that is convenient to UIC, the South Loop, Bridgeport, Chinatown and surrounding neighborhoods. Garage parking is available seven days a week and there is easy access to public transportation and major expressways.
