The restaurant, located on Stonecrest Circle, received a 41 out of 100 after the inspector noted concerns including flies in the kitchen, according to the report.

A man who answered the phone at Steak ‘n Shake on Wednesday said, “there is no story” and hung up on a reporter.

The inspector’s report also notes employees handling ready-to-eat food with their bare hands and cross-contamination concerns.
