No doubt about it....Come Back Shack has the best burgers in town. We were referred by a couple sitting next to us at an App State Football game. We are so glad they told us about this spot. Freshly prepared burgers with great toppings to choose from. It's really busy, for a reason, but worth standing in line for. The... More

Actually we visited in September of 2015 and this place was amazing. Best burger joint around, but has more than burgers. Wanted to get there this trip but didn't have time. Will defiantly go again. Clean place and great food.

Been on the road for nearly two weeks. Have not had even one burger till now. Got the burger with fried green tomatoes and homemade pimento cheese... excellent choice. If you are like my wife and me and like the non chain food meals and want a burger, this is the place in Boone.

This restaurant is so unique and I love how you order your meal on the 6" x 14" order form (menu on both sides). When you take your order to the counter they give you a number and deliver the food to your table and the service time beats any fast food restaurant I have been to before. We ordered... More

We decided we were not going to go home and cook , so we went to comeback. I got the Nathan's Hotdog all the way with onions added with fries and ice tea! Diane chose one of the many different burgers offered with fries and drink. As always food was awesome, staff friendly and courteous.

This place was highly recommended and PACKED. We both ordered the local burger because duh, and it came super thin and dried out. Seriously one of the worst burgers I've ever had. The fries were great though.

If you are looking for something a little different, give this place a try. If you visit on a weekend be prepared to wait in line for a little while. The food is good. The burgers are good and give the sweet potato chips a try. Good place but not exactly "fast food."

The place was packed with people, yet the staff kept the tables cleaned for the next person to sit. Great Service!! I don't see this type of quick busing of tables in any restaurant none the less a fast food joint! Food was great too! Everything's made the way you want it!

Great little find just as we pulled into town! Loaded with bacon BLT is a winner! Awesome hand cut fries. Outdoor dining. Delish!
