Our milk shakes are made with premium real ice-cream and hand spun in a dozen flavors.We go to the extra effort to serve the best, tastiest, freshest food to our guests because we know you care about what you eat. Its the kind of food we love, and we enjoy fixing for others. We look forward to seeing you at Come Back Shack!

Could use more seatung but the food is great!

I don't particularly enjoy having people standing over my shoulder waiting for me to finish my meal so they can have my table... That said, the food is excellent.

I LOVE come back shack! When I moved away I was bummed because I've never had local fast food before and the come back sauce might as well be call "shack crack" because it's good on everything and the perfect compliment to french fries! Toss the ketchup and opt for "shack crack"

Got here for lunch at 1 thinking we would have missed the lunch crowd. It was still standing room only when we walked in which is a great problem to have I suppose.

The food is awesome! No two ways about it...really good food! The staff are friendly, and patient with people like me who don't know exactly what they want. The portions are pretty large as well! Great place!

We typically always eat at the same place in Boone upon arrival. We decided to try something new (for us). My husband liking burgers and me salad, this place offered an affordable and large variety of foods. Very, very good and will return.

One of my favorite places to have a Burger. I like selecting what I want on mine with. They have a great selection of items to add to your order. Fries are good as well.

Come back shack is so delicious, and cheap! They have a student discount, which is great. Their burgers are my favorite, and you can customize yours just the way you like it! I have to stop myself from going their more than once a week!

My husband and I tried this place out for a little date night. Great burgers and fries! Love the signature sauce! Be advised it is small and was busy the whole time we were there. There were people waiting to sit down. Maybe try it during a off hour....we went at 6pm.
