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

The burgers are completely customizable and made to order, fresh. Get the Come Back Fries! Seriously.

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

Sure it's nice to customize your burger on your own sheet of paper. This day they were busy. It was noisy. The burger was ok. Nothing that special. Typical drinks. Hand cut fries. We're soggy not crisp. A combo meal is like $8. I expected better.

This place used to be pretty decent when it used to be Back Yard Burgers, but now this place is awful! They used to have real good waffle fries and they don't have them anymore. There burgers used to be a lot bigger and they are a joke now for what you have to pay for them. I gave them... More

So good! The place is a little small inside, but the food is good. I wouldn't say it was the best BBQ i have ever had, but it was good. The porky fries are amazing! Best part of my meal. The pork is really juicy and not dried out. Worth it in my opinion....go try it!

Just happened upon this place. Great food and milkshakes and the fries come with a variety of toppings, yum! We had the local burger and the Cajun burger, both so tasty. Would love to see one in my hometown!

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.
