I doubt we ever get a Steak and Shake here in West Plains. For some reason, fine dining establishments "never" come to this town. Therefore...we have to eat at these inner city low brow Ghetto eateries like McDonald's and Burger King.

The classic old time one on St. Louis St. in downtown Springfield is good, it is on a historic register. I don't care for the modern ones, you can't duplicate classic.

West Plains does not have a Steak and Shake ( which I love)for the same reason they don't have a Hobby Lobby or a Target etc. etc etc. because people won't shop in there own town and support the businesses. When you support your local area you are supporting all your friends and neighbors and their families that they are trying to feed, cloth and provide a stable environment for. The next time someone ask the question why West Plains does not have a certain business ask them the question where did you buy your shoes, clothes, grocerys, furniture, automobile etc from? Not only do local businesses and employees lose when you shop out of town but your schools and city's lose tax dollars that could help our children and community to thrive. If you want more and better choices for your community... Shop local. Yes, a Steak and Shake would be a great addition to this town.

I do my darndest to buy things online w/o any tax. Sorry schoolkids, I am paying half the price of getting the exact item I want vs limited choice of mediocre product at regular retail I didn't really want. For the savings I can sponsor a little league team, soccer, science club, FCCLA trip, give to boys and girls club, Bridges, start a Grizzly scholarship...with only the amount I saved on items instead of paying full retail for junk.. If its a big item I go to Lowes in MH. Haha. Hard to find a good burger online, but if you weren't so ignorant you could find a better burger and shake from locally-owned, small business person.

total bullshitz on this,,,cuz steak n shakes have most their restraunts in the getto parts of towns,,,and west plains people spend way more then the getto folks do,,,plus wont rob the place at gun point,,,a certain club of people in west plains do all the deciding who and what comes in town,,,and a steak n shake would take away from all the other crap fast food joints in town,,,the reality is,,,if steak n shake would come to town dressed up like a doller general store,,,they would be open right now,,,ha haa haaa

Could it have been an assassination attempt gone awry? Do you work for the government or a foreign agency? I'm sorry, but these questions need to be asked.
