Steak 'n Shake, the iconic burger chain known for its steakburgers and hand-dipped milkshakes, reopened its restaurants in Portage and Michigan City. The vintage 1950s-esque diner/fast-food chain temporarily closed its locations at 5809 S. Franklin St. in Michigan City, at 6231 U.S. 6 in Portage and in Benton Harbor just north of the Michigan state line in Harbor Country in 2019 as it looked for franchisees to take them over.
