Steak ‘n Shake Tucson devotees will no longer have to drive to Tempe.

Instead, they’ll have to compete with University of Arizona students for parking at the Student Union Memorial Center at 1303 E. University Blvd.

The Indianapolis-based burger chain posted a “coming soon” sign at the space that previously housed Burger King.

Guests expecting the chain’s signature diner-style environment will have to settle with the Student Union’s food court tables instead. They’ll have the namesake “steakburgers” and hand-dipped milkshakes, however.

No official date has been announced, but you can bet Steak ‘n Shake will want it open before the fall semester begins in August.
