Steak N' Shake Closed for Leak in Coral Springs: Restaurant Inspections


Our latest inspection report is one of the better ones we’ve seen, with no restaurant getting more than 15 violations and no more than 7 marked high priority. While its numbers weren’t that bad, Steak N’ Shake in Coral Springs was temporarily closed on June 7th, apparently due to a roof leak that got into the food:

Stop Sale issued due to adulteration of food product. Observed water leaking from ceiling light in walk in cooler, tray with packaged turkey slices, under leaking light, is sitting in accumulation of water in pan, operator stated that he is not sure if it’s from the leaking light. Operator instructed to discard turkey, about 3lbs.

Inspectors noted a total of 11 violations with one other “high priority” violation involving live small flying insects. The restaurant was cleared two days later in a follow-up inspection with zero violations.

  1. I have no idea how anyone can tolerate the so-called food at Steak N’ Shake?! I tried it once and was not a fan. The name is simply too Goyish for my tastes. LOL!

      1. No need to since Boca Raton is considered the 6th Borough of NYC. eh More Jews and Kosher delis here than anywhere else in FLA. It’s become the new Miami. While I do not practice a strict Kosher diet, what reasonable-minded person has the chutzpah to mix meat with whole milk? eh Shakes do not go well with Steak! eh
