I think they named their restaurant accurately. This is the place once you've eaten there you have to go back. My family loves this place and everyone can find something on the menu that they like. The California style is amazing. Their chicken tenders are one of my favorites in town.

Sure wish we had this place at home! We thought this might be just another burger place...WRONG! We tried something a little different and could not believe the quality and taste. Had chicken tenders and a wedge salad that could rival high end restaurants and for a price no where near those places. We will return on our next visit... More

I live in the area. One of my favorite places to eat is the Come Back Shack. The experience is a little different. They truly are a made to order sandwich shop. As you come in the door there is a small table with menus and pencils. Take a menu and circle and check the toppings and items you want.... More

Most go here for a good burger and most of the people we were with had one but I decided to try the chicken tenders that were hand breaded dipped in buttermilk in a General Tso's sauce and they were so awesome! The service was outstanding!

My husband and I just got to Boone and I found this place on TripAdvisor! The grilled chicken sandwich (blackened) was amazing and my husband loved the burger! We'll definitely eat here again before we leave Boone:)

I have visited this restaurant many times. Each time I go, I try to look at things with a different perspective, but I always end up with the same result; lackluster. There have been times we have gone as a family, and they don't get our order right. Other times we have used the drivethru, and again, they didn't get... More

Very unique flavors. Local meat and hand cut fries are fabulous with their homemade ranch dressing. I always like to support oval businesses and this one is great!

Everyone in my family ordered something different. I ordered Buffalo Chicken Tenders and they were average at best. The rest of my family loved what they ordered. The fries were very good. The service was good and fast.

I caution you, the salad is huge! I had the blackened chicken. The chicken was juicy. I chose 4 of my favorite toppings. The avocado was creamy, huge mushrooms, baby spinach, and crisp sweet potato chips. There were numerous other choices as well. Try the lemon vinaigrette; yum. Great to be able to fix it to my taste. Come to... More
