Stopped here for lunch and it was great! Nice, very friendly and helpful staff. Soo many menu choices, the degree that you can customize your order is amazing! The milkshake I had was by far one of the best I've had! I usually dislike signature sauces but I fell in love with the "come back sauce".

The food was very good. My daughter ordered chicken tenders and I had a come back burger. I cannot eat wheat and they offered to wrap my burger in lettuce for me. Very friendly and quick service.

This is our favorite place to eat while we are on vacation. The customer service is excellent, and the food is delicious. My favorite burger is the fried green tomato style.

Every time we come to Boone for vacation we stop here and always have a great meal. That said I can't honestly say the burgers and fries are in anyway unique - I'd definitely compare it to Five Guys, but in a good way because I think Five Guys is great.
