Love this place, wish there was more room

This place was great! My burger was delicious and fresh, not overdone. You must try the Come Back sauce, it's divine! My only beef with this place (heh heh) is that there's virtually no room. I was bumped, pushed, and stepped on while trying to eat. I'll definitely be going back but next time I'll... read more

This is ok for I guess the college crowd, it really isn't a place I really cared for, the food was so so, small place to me as I said it is geared to attract kids.

Don't let this small shack fool you. If you travel thru Boone, North Carolina, stop in for a quick hamburger, chicken or pulled pork. Food is served fast, great price and the come back sauce is great on a burger. I had the hamburger with pulled pork. Great taste. Great for a quick lunch. That day we visited, Come Back... More

This place is everyone's favorite, among Boone locals. We eat here far too often. The food is always delicious. It's more expensive than other fast-food places, but it's locally owned and everything is always fresh, made to order. We always drive through and bring it home. It's usually too crowded to get a seat inside.

Just ate dinner at the shack. It was great. Ordered grill chicken sandwich and sweet potato chips. Wife got cheeseburger. Very fast service and excellent concept for ordering. Fill out order sheet and give to cashier. Even though it was our first time the process was very obvious. Tables were being cleaned promptly. Shakes are hand spun and tasty. We... More

While vacationing in Boone with friends, we wanted to try this place for a late lunch, about 1:30pm. We almost had to push our way in, no tables, no wait staff, no instructions about how to even order. We watched some other diners, then figured out you had to fill out a menu sheet, choosing and marking what you want... More

This is perfect for a college town. The pricing was average and the food was good. They offered a wide variety of shakes too.
