We went to the Come Back Shack based on the high reviews. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious, especially the fries. I would have liked the burger to be a little bigger, though, but it still tasted great. We will return the next time we are in town.

Had dinner here yesterday on a whim while driving through the area. My husband LOVED it and said we will definitely be back. The concept of ordering by writing down what you want made it a bit more fun and laid back compared to other burger joints. The Come Back Sauce is pretty great and reminds me of Zax Sauce.... More

What a great place to have really great food. Although it's nestled between other restaurants, this place is packed BUT there always seems to be a table open. Very casual, you order upfront, they give you a number and they deliver your food to you. Good size portions and great quality of food. I had the Fried Green tomato and... More

The concept is great, the atmosphere is relaxing, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the food is awesome. For a great burger skip the chains and get there.

Ordered by circling what we wanted on a paper, huge amount of choices for toppings, fries were fresh and very crispy, enjoyed their "shack sauce", a very good deal for the money

Burgers, chicken, salads.......Everything is excellent! Quality ingredients, great prep and superior services makes for a wonderful experience. Warm amd friendly atmosphere that feels like eating with friends rather than at a restaurant. Friendliest staff in the high country. What a restaurant should be.

Took us a couple of minutes to understand the ordering process but once we got hang of it, it was easy and fun. Food came to our table and was fresh and very tasty. Well worth the money and we wish there would be such a shack in any place we visit.

We were just driving by and the sign caught our attention saying that they had a fried green tomato burger. We continued our shopping trip and had to stop back by for dinner. I will have to say that this is probably the best burger I have ever had at any type of restaurant and the price is great. My... More

Try the come back shack when you are in Boone Nc. It is an excellent hamburger joint, do try the come back shack sauce, if you like mayonnaise. While vacationing in Boone, we are there 4 different times. The build your own burger is the way to go. The french fries are send to none.

If you don't get what you want here, you won't find it.... Everything is fresh, tailored to your requests, and hand made. From hand-pattied local beef, to the hand cut fries & hand spun milkshakes..and don't forget their special sauce......mmmmmmm..... Our family of 8 dined on local Watauga Beef, Grilled Chicken, Turkey burgers, hot dog, regular fries & Ranch/bacon/cheddar fries,... More
