Simply great fries and burgers

I've been here a handful of times when visiting Boone and ASU. It's consistently good with great fries, good burgers and a really good cajun? chicken sandwich. It's always busy, which says a lot for it.

The best thing about this place is that the burgers are totally customizable. I often go through drive through, as I can't resist Come Back when passing by, and I opt for the California style burger, the menu says chicken, but they're interchangeable. The MOST important thing. Try the Come Back sauce!! I dip my fries in it, I put... More

What a great little burger place! Fast service! I ate half of my Come Back burger, then traded with my husband and ate half of a fried green tomato burger. Both were very good! I definitely recommend this restaurant!

Three of us for dinner, nothing really fancy, BUT you get your burgers exactly as you like them. And, if you are not into burgers, the have salads too. Great shakes, too. This place is a win.

Visited for the first time while moving in our daughter at App State and has become our favorite place to grab lunch or dinner. Each of us ordered a different item and everyone loved their food. Burgers are fresh and cooked to order. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend to grab a burger or chicken sandwich when in Boone.... More

By far one of the better burger joints I have been to in a while. Picked the kind of burger I wanted (100% chuck hand-pattied burger), then made it a double. Went with the hula style which was pineapple and teriyaki sauce. Really good. Then added fries with their come back sauce. Loved it. Best part you can sit outside... More

Our family has liked everything we have gotten there. Love the sweet potato chips. No one else in town has anything like them. Come back shack sauce is wonderful. The family who owns it give back to the community...even better reason to eat there.

I love the Come Back Shack in Boone! I get the grilled chicken sandwich and fries and I absolutely LOVE their sauce! I put it on my sandwich and dip my fries in it! They also give ASU students a 10% discount! Great food that is a step above fast food!

The menu can be a little overwhelming. However, I was talked through the process by the staff. I had the sandwich with the fried green tomatoes, minus the pimento cheese. I loved it and can't wait to go back. Hamburger was not dry, had a good taste.
