My son talked me into going into the Wayback after having not been there in years. It's the same old thing, poor quality food at a ridiculous price along with really poor service. We waited 25 minutes and I can say I could have gone across the street to Sharps if I wanted a frozen meet patty slapped onto a... More

We stopped here before going down to our local Hot August Nights car show. I enjoy supporting local businesses, but this was beyond awful. Our table was dirty and the place was full of flies buzzing us as we ate. Much of the dishware looked filthy. There were only four tables of people while we were there for breakfast and... More

While visiting this area and sampling several local eateries, we stopped in for a milkshake and burgers. What we got was a watered down chocolate milkshake, a formerly frozen beef patty slapped on a toasted stale bun and a waitress with a bad attitude. Burger King down the road would have been a better choice. Avoid, avoid, avoid!

We went to this restaurant two times. The first time, we were happy to be someplace that did not smell like disinfectant (as we had just exited such a place while hungry). The service was delightful and we loved the burgers and malts. The second time we had higher expectations and were disappointed. The burgers were okay, but the service... More

.....food and restaurant regulations. I have been to hundreds and even thousands of restaurants in my life and this place was the worst! The burger I had was disgusting. The place looks good from a distance sporting a neon alligator and drag car on a pole, but don't just glance, look closely; there is a rusted out limo in the... More

We've been her several times for family gatherings. The food is good, the prices are reasonable and the service is usually good.

When I walked in for the first time in about three years I was impressed by the improvements in both the decor and the menu. They had painted the place up, added even more of the 50's soda fountain foo foos and went over to serving a much wider variety of food even adding beer and mixed drinks. OK fine,... More

My wife & I visit regularly (Thursdays) for the 2-for-$10 bargain country fried steak dinners. The food is tasty, the waitresses are attentive. You must purchase 2 drinks with the dinners for the bargain price. It's still worth it!!
