I have written prior about Omaha being the restaurant capital of the world. Or so it seems sometimes! I have been traveling to Chicago weekly for the past month or two. When I go, I often see Steak’n’Shake and wonder why that is not open in Omaha. It should be. When I was a kid, I used to love going there, even more so than McDonalds. They used to have their tag line “takhomasak” in neon letters and it would always be a bit odd at first and then it would hit me what it meant and then I would what one of those awesome steakburgers and fantastic fries. Best fries anywhere (though Runza fries could give’em a run if they were of similar size/shape).
How incredible is it that I sat for a burger, fries and a shake a few days ago while it was snowing and probably not even above 1 degree? Ahh, the simple joys of a memory and reliving your childhood as an adult.
