For this Fry Day we will pick on the sleeping giant:
Steak and Shake
Time of day: 9:20am
All ratings except hot are a 1-10 scale. Hot is how long they remain warm.
Hot: 10 minutes
Quantity: (Stated 141g) (Actual 140g)
Value: $.012785 per gram
First off may I say, we have a new loser on the value scale! These guys are slightly more expensive per gram than any I have rated so far. But on the plus side at least the weight was close.
The taste was pretty good but as I went along I noticed an underlying hint of something burnt. This could be caused by old oil or they just burnt something either way it was still there but it wasn’t overbearing.
The slim cut of these fries does not lend itself well to the heat scale as they just don’t stay warm long. I have had many times where they have been cold before they even got to the table. This time was an exception and they actually stayed warm for awhile, although I did cradle them near my sandwich for some extra insulation. It’s fall people, turn the darn AC down!
There was no salt on these fries at all, not a grain. They did have a little zing to them but I am going to attribute that to the oil they were fried in, which we will cover next!
I am rating them high on greasiness. I could feel it all over my lips and tongue after the meal. No it wasn’t from the sandwich, I ate it last! I still can’t get the greasy feel out of my mouth, I don’t like that at all.
My overall for Steak and Shake is going to have to be low. I just can’t get past how greasy the fries are and I really wish they would find a way to keep them warm longer. Oh and they might want to throw some salt on there every once in awhile!
Only one photo this time, the others didn’t turn out that well. Maybe I should carry my light tent with me!
