The Oktoberfest Steakburger from Steak ‘n Shake

As far as I know, Red Robin got the ball rolling on the Oktoberfest Burger with its introduction in 2011. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Steak ‘n Shake now has one of their own.  There have been some comments regarding the Oktoberfest Steakburger on our Red Robin post earlier this week so I figured everyone deserved a look.

The Oktoberfest Steakburger from Steak ‘n Shake is a double Steakburger with Swiss, sauteed onions, Black Forest Ham on a toasted pretzel bun. Priced at $5.49 with fries included.

    They’re not just sautéed onions. S&S even copied the mustard onions.

  2. Bob says:

    When did it become acceptable to put other kinds of meat on a hamburger?

  3. Nick says:

    I don’t have any Red Robins anywhere near me, so this is a welcome addition to Steak & Shake’s menu. I wonder if they’ll let me have this with chicken instead of beef…

  4. Nick says:

    Also, anything on a pretzel roll is fine by me! I’d love to see them become more widespread in the US!

    @Bob, ever heard of a bacon burger???

  6. Rob says:

    That looks pretty good and I tend to like most of what Steak and Shake does, well not so much the fries but everything else.

    I tried this today because I have been drooling over it ever since I first laid eyes on the picture (and I had a coupon for a dollar off). I was pretty disappointed with it. The bun was dry and about the only thing I could taste was mustard. It was strong and bitter and overpowered the whole thing. The Swiss cheese added nothing to the whole package. I would not buy this sandwich again. On a side note, I did try both the S’mores and Caramel Apple shakes. S’mores was kind of dull but the apple flavor was a real standout. Very unique and satisfying. Skip the sandwich and get the shake!

    Also, I noted today that Steak ‘n Shake is now advertising an “Up All Night” menu that is available from approximately 1 a.m. – 6 a.m. (now wishing I would have taken a picture of the vinyl banner). The picture featured a cheeseburger that looked like it was about ten burgers high and some sort of southwest salad. I did a little research but found nada in terms of the offerings for this new menu. Intrigued to hear more about this though!

    Total ripoff of Red Robin’s Oktoberfest burger. The only thing different is this one is missing lettuce!

    Had this today, I was pretty happy with the burger. My bun was nice and soft. I could taste all the flavors. I would say maybe just a touch much mustard but still in the ok level. Still hate the SnS fries. And service was among the worst. Looking forward to trying the RR version as I am sure it shall be better, and love those fries.

    Thought it was outstanding. The burgers at the one I go to are always immaculate, though. YMMV, of course.

    Perhaps I just lucked into an exceptional sandwich, but I absolutely LOVED my Octoberfest burger. Having lived in Germany for a time and acquiring the taste for the spicy mustard, this just hit the spot. Hope it stays for another month or two so I can get a few more.
