It's a small place, but the burgers are great. We had two Local Burgers, one with Come Back Sauce and one Zydeco Creole Style. You fill out a menu card and take it to the register then they bring your bag of goodies to you or take it to go. Timing is everything here since seating is limited, but it... More

This place just looks fun and quirky, and it is! On a friend's recommendation, we stopped to check it out and couldn't believe the menu variety. And, this is the BEST burger I've had in a long time! Lots of sandwich and drink options, great fries... check it out!

Great fast food burgers. I mostly use the drive thru as it is typically crowded with limited parking. It is located off of Blowing Rock Road just below the Shops at Shadowline (Harris Teeter). You can also enter and exit out of the shopping plaza. I prefer the Local burger with their sweet potato chips. They have more add on... More

Staff is always friendly, food is even better. You can never go wrong with the seasoned fries! In all honesty Come Back Shack one of the best places to get a burger in Boone (not to mention it's a local place).

This is a must stop in Boone. Absolutely the best fast food I have ever eaten. Fresh sweet potato chips, hand cut fries, delicious burgers, and I could go on.

After choosing our Christmas tree at C & J Christmas Tree Farm, we decided to go for some hamburgers. We stopped at Come Back Shack and the place was crowded. After ordering we started vying for a table. Our order came before we had a seat but only moments before. Our hamburgers were delicious. They serve large portions of fries... More

That said, I visited Come Back Shack on a friend's recommendation. First trip was local grass fed beef burger and chocolate shake. Wow. Most satisfyingly indulgent shake I have had in years and burger was perfect. Subsequent visits have been for salads with grilled chicken. You can select 4 toppings to create your own salad. House made vinegrette is fresh... More

Wanted to try something "local" without a huge price tag. Whole family thought it delicious. The fries were definitely our favorite. Will visit again when in the area!

There was a drive thru which was convenient. We ordered our burgers come back style which was pretty good - not as amazing as the reviews made it out to see, but still good. The chicken tenders were great - not overly fried or seasoned, and the chicken wasn't minced or anything. Definitely not mad at the fries either -... More
