On November 17, metro Denver will finally get its own Steak 'n Shake, a link in a chain that started in Normal, Illinois, back in 1934, and proclaims that it's "Famous for Steakburgers."

Aimee can't wait:

OMG, so I can go to Steak 'n Shake and then to IKEA in one day without a plane ticket? If they just get a Trader Joe's and an IMO's pizza, I'll be beside myself!

This first Colorado store will be in Centennial, just off of C-470 at South Quebec Street and East County Line Road -- conveniently close to IKEA. A total of five locations are slated to open in the state; a second is already under construction in Colorado Springs.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
