Cheddar cheese on the burger was good. Got the way back build your own. Also got the o ring combo. 3 onion rings, rest... More

Wow! We happened to be in the area hiking, and based on the other reviews, decided to give this place a try. We walked in to find all 20 tables in the dining area were dirty. The floor had trash and food all over it. This might have been understandable had they been busy, but only 2 of the tables... More

Here's a place in Morganton where you can eat a real Burger and not go home hungry. It's big, it's juicy, and it's delicious. And by the way, the fries are just as good.

Best place around to get a really good cook-to-order burger with all the trimmings. Not exactly gourmet burgers, but a step way above the usual fast food variety. Specialty burgers as well as single, double, or triple patties. Also Philly steaks with sautéed onions. Salads but never had them - you go there for the burgers. All from scratch with... More

Great burgers, good customer service. Try the onion rings and a shake too! My friend & I went at the busiest time, an entire baseball team and their parents had just walked in ahead of us. We decided to wait it out and I'm glad we did!!! It was our first trip to Jake's Wayback Hamburgers but it will not... More

This is a good burger place located in town near the movie theater. They're pretty cheap also. But it's nothing out of the ordinary.
