Wayback Burgers is a great alternative to the larger chain fast food restaurants. All food is fresh and cooked to order. The menu offers diners numerous combination meals as well as straight forward burgers and fries. Service is great....a little bit pricey but enjoyable.

While the burgers here are good (and I've been wanting to try the "Triple Triple" for awhile now) they close too soon and the ambiance is a bit lacking. Good service though.

Enjoyed a quick road trip stop meal of cheeseburger, fries and strawberry milkshake. Only 2 other diners while I was there. Glad I stopped and look forward to going back in the near future.

For the price of the burgers, they weren't any different from your average burger joint. Very dry and not at all what was expected.

We went to have some lunch with family. We waited for thirty minutes and didn't get our food or milkshakes. Several other people were complaining about the wait as well. The manager was unable to provide a receipt when we asked for refund after not receiving the food. We didn't expect fast food time, but for $50 and 35 minutes... More

We're so sorry for the negative experience. We experienced unusually high volume that day. Your order was properly refunded as charges aren't made until the end of the day. Feel free to contact me on the business card you were given so we can further make things right. More

We stopped here on our way home from a trip. My kids have liked Wayback for a long time and I look for their locations when available because we know what to expect. This one was clean and we received correct orders and everything was as we expected it to be.

Our burgers were greasy, bland and expensive. Our fries were dry and lacking enough salt. There are far better choices in this area. Their drive in has no menu board. The staff were so slow. They were not busy at all and it took them almost 30 minutes to make two burgers and two fries. I also noticed that they... More

Thanks for visiting! We're sorry to hear about your unpleasant visit. Your food should take 6-8 minutes, but never 30. We'll be sure to hold our staff to this in the future. Our pick-up window does cause some confusion, we apologize for that. It's for online orders and call-in pickups, not for ordering from. The butter substitute is for grilling... More

When you smell burgers grilling the minute you walk in, it sets the mouth to drooling. There are several varieties of burgers, meaning, with cheese and grilled bun, with chipotle, with bacon, lots of combinations. The burgers and onion rings are made to order so the food is nice and hot and juicy. They have yummy shakes. The staff was... More
