Three strikes and you're out. I've been here three times and each time has been a fresh new horrible experience. First time it took almost forty minutes to fulfill the order. Yes, for a burger and fries! The food was okay though so I thought...More

Ate here the other day during our travels. Tried them based on reviews. When it comes to chain burger places, the best they can be in my mind is average. The plus is that the burgers are grilled when you order. You have a nice...More

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 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...More

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...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...More
