Chili

Steak 'n Shake

comment
You seldom hear people arguing over the ingredients of a salad, even though you can make them 1,000 ways. Chili, though, has a basic core of ingredients, but also some wide latitude for that secret "punch." And, thus, people do argue over who makes the best chili, whether it's a spirited argument at the block party, or a discussion over a restaurant's merits. Steak 'n Shake serves up a darned popular, darned populist chili. You might not know exactly what's in it, but you do order without worry.
