New York's first-ever Steak 'n Shake opened up yesterday, and a lot of people were really excited! Among them was David Letterman, a noted fan of the Midwestern burger chain whose television show happens to be filmed directly next door to the new Steak 'n Shake — close enough so that the building has apparently "smelled like grilled onions" all week.

So last night on his show, Letterman sent in an order for two steakburgers with cheese and a couple of shakes, telling an employee that "There should be some pressure on this order because this means everything." Steak 'n Shake then delivered the burgers directly to Letterman's studio where he ate one on the spot.
