I can't wait to try this at home! This is what I usually order from Steak n' Shake, so I know it's going to be a hit at my house.

I'm so glad I found this recipe! The Steak n' Shake near my house has terrible service, but I love their Frisco melts. This recipe looks a lot less greasy too. I'll probably do it without the onions though.
