We were surprised to find this place packed outside of lunch hours. We were even more surprised to find a drive through considering how customizable the menu is. The drive through was ultra efficient with at least 6 workers visible through the window. Our burgers were delicious and the ingredients were top notch. We also tried the chili and ranch... More

Excellent burgers, made to order. Not super fast, but worth the shorter wait. Try sweet potato fries.

I like their fresh ingredients and love their Oreo shakes. The wait is sometimes long, but the food is good. We usually takeout and eat at home.

Boone was so busy we had trouble getting in at several places and ended up here by default. So glad we did. I had the Watauga burger and it was absolutely delicious. My daughter enjoyed the veggie burger. Everyone in the group was happy with the food. No seating inside so we ate on the patio. It was very cold... More

We visited this place at peak time during peak season and it was fantastic! The burgers are fresh, the fries are homemade, the sweet potato chips were delish and the milkshakes were thick and yummy. The Hawaiin burger (chicken, pineapple) was a hit at our table of 8 as well as the burger with a fried green tomato. I got... More

Our family tried three types of chicken tenders, two styles of fries, and a burger. The chicken tenders were cooked well, but the General Tso/Teriyaki did not have much flavor. My hubby rated the burger as good but not amazing. We loved the bacon cheddar fries and the buffalo style fries - both were very tasty and even the leftovers... More

Now I know the reason Come Back Shack is rated #1. The burgers are fresh and all the ingredients are fresh and tasty as well. When you eat a burger, you taste all of the ingredients separately as well as the whole. Simple food is really hard to make, this is the tops!!

Delicious made-to-order burgers with grilled onions and any toppings desired added for free. Hand-cut fries and sweet potato chips were delicious. Excellent, fast, pleasant service and easy ordering process with pre-order sheets that allow for efficiency. Clean seating area.
