While delicious, this cheeseburger provides no real discernible spice, but does pack enough tangy flavor to make it recommendable for anyone tired of the normal cheeseburger or bacon cheeseburger parade. The Spicy Chipotle comes with peppers, onions, and a chipotle sauce. All three of those things blend to create a truly delicious, if not slightly underwhelming, steakburger.
The size of the burger is adequate, if not trending just a bit on the small side of the scale. But one major issue is with the bun, and it has proved to be a disaster multiple times. The bottom bun becomes softened by the amount of things piled on, and begins to disintegrate with each subsequent bite. This is a major issue at Steak and Shake. Great burgers, crummy buns.
The taste of the burger is its strength, although the title is misleading. It, in no single way, is spicy. It’s more of a zesty feeling, not a reach for your drink spice that I know I was hoping for.
To sum up, it’s a good burger with a good price tag, a slightly misleading name and a terrible bun.
Score: 7.0/10 (Good)
