The grilled tuna salad I had today was so amazing!!!! I will be back for this. The soy dressing was the best for it.

My son had heard about this restaurant from a friend and insisted we eat here. The burgers were excellent! It was nice that each person in the family could have what they wanted. Very reasonable prices.

Both my daughters went to Appalachian State and we always came here when in town. The burgers and fries are so good! Usually is pretty busy. They have both inside and outside seating. I highly recommend it!

My son and I decided to try this restaurant for dinner. It is small with limited parking and limited seating. There was a line when we entered. You need to fill out a form to customize your burger. After we ordered, there were no seats...More

We enjoyed a well done burger and drinks here for our road trip. We even got their fish sandwich which is nothing like other fast food chains! No breading or frying it up here. A large piece of tuna, cooked over flames. Yum!

We stopped here to grab a quick bite to eat, and we were so pleased with our meals. The burgers were fresh and tasty, and the buffalo chicken sandwich was a hit.

The food quality at the Come Back Shack rivals that of any full-service restaurant, yet it's served super fast and fresh! Everything is delicious. The salads are phenomenal, too. Bonus: it's locally-sourced! Unique, beautiful art and decor (yes, it's the Shack, but it's no shack)....More
