Eight Steak 'n Shake restaurants in the St. Louis area closed in recent days.
A notice on the company's website said the restaurants are "temporarily closed." The Indianapolis-based chain has several dozen restaurants in the St. Louis region.
The closed Steak 'n Shake restaurants are at 12607 Dorsett Road in Maryland Heights; 10459 Page Avenue in Overland; 13426 Olive Boulevard and 17312 Chesterfield Airport Road in Chesterfield; 13849 Manchester Road in unincorporated St. Louis County; 7606 Manchester Road in Maplewood; 4320 West Main in Belleville; and 10860 Lincoln Trail in Fairview Heights, Ill.
A sign posted on the Maplewood restaurant said the closure is due to remodeling.
A company spokesman did not immediately return calls seeking comment about the closures.
