Read the reviews and decided to try it. The hand-make shakes were tasty. The burger options were unique and really had no complaints. Had much better burgers at Bad Daddy's in Charlotte. But Comeback was better than most burger places.

3 teenage boys told me the burger was just the right size. Chicken a bit on the small side. Fries, over the top in size ( could have shared). Awesome taste and fast.

I love the Come Back Shack! Their burgers are awesome and the service is always friendly. The price is a little higher than other fast food burger joints they more than make up for that in taste, its well worth it. If you are looking for a quick mean in the High Country I highly recommend.

This restaurant doesn't look like much when you drive up. But you can create your burger with a huge array of toppings. The food is great and reasonably priced.

This is one of my favorite places in Boone. The owners are conscientious - making strides to buy local meats and produce for their menu, recycling bins for cups and paper bags, and loyal employees who obviously enjoy working there. The menu is kid-friendly and still sophisticated enough for grown-ups too. We love the atmosphere - good music, good eats,... More

If you are hungry for a burger, come here. I took a family of 6 and spent about $30. The burgers are good and you have a lot of choices. I sampled several bites of the kids (after they couldn't finish). I tried the Carolina style. I don't recommend it because I did not think the chili was all that... More

Upon checking into our motel for the weekend, I asked for a recommendation a local favorite eating place. With no hesitation, we were told to visit the Come Back Shack. The name should say it all, because we will diffidently "Come Back" as the name implies. The selection wasn't the typical fast food type, although we did indeed receive our... More

Next time you visit, try a burger wrapped in lettuce. The combination of the chilly lettuce with a hot burger is not only intriguing, but a culinary delight. I enjoyed the turkey burger come back style with lettuce, and my husband enjoyed his beef burger with the lettuce as an accompaniment. Come back shack, you guys are GREAT!!!

A local alternative for a lunch time break. Food is top quality, fast and reasonable. Building is a bit funky but fun!

This is truly the burger place that allows you to have a burger the way you like it - from the type of meat (or vegetarian patty) & covering (bun type or a lettuce wrap) to the condiments, fries and sides. The choices fill both sides of 8.5x14 sheet. I especially recommend the fried green tomato & pimento cheese burger.... More
