My family of four (sons... three and under one) were rookies when we entered the door but your fantastic employee Dean took us under his wing, got my mini traveling zoo to a table, got us a high chair, then took time to walk down the menu and how to order. The food was absolutely AWESOME... Easily the best meal... More

Come Back Shack has delicious GF food for those of us that have been missing our burgers because of gluten. Big bags of hot GF fries too.

We love the Come Back Shack! Our daughter attends ASU and we always eat at the Come Back Shack when we are in town. The burgers are the best I have ever had and the fries are my favorite. If you haven't tried them you are missing out!

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. On a past trip, I have eaten 2 in one day, 1 at 2 different meals! On our recent trip, Dean was very friendly and helpful, and his service... More
