At Colorado's first Steak 'n Shake, a lawsuit may be the least of the problems

When I walked into the Steak 'n Shake at 8271 South Quebec Street -- the first Steak 'n Shake to open in Colorado -- I was greeted by a host stand holding a dirty tray with trash on it, with no host in sight. And my visit only got worse from there. Steak 'n Shake Enterprises Inc. and Steak 'n Shake LLC are suing the local owners of the two Steak 'n Shake restaurants in Colorado, this one included, asking the judge to prevent them from operating the spots as Steak 'n Shakes and citing franchise-agreement failures.

Franchise agreement failures or no, the Centennial Steak 'n Shake is definitely failing customers big time with horrible service and sub-par food.
