More than 20 years ago, Jake's Hamburgers started serving up juicy, hand-prepped burgers from a single shop on Route 273. Dissatisfied with the modern burgers of competitors, the shop’s owners changed the name to Wayback Burgers.
Today at each location, hand-crafted patties sizzle on grills until cooks stack them two, three, or even nine high (think the Triple Triple Burger) in buns. An ever-changing burger and shake of the month keep the menu from becoming tired, while guests add toppings Wayback's way or choose from sautéed mushrooms, bacon, and grilled onions to add some novelty to the time-tested burgers. Further tributes to diners of yesteryear include all-beef hot dogs, house-fried potato chips, and chili-cheese dogs. The smooth crests of hand-dipped malted milkshakes beg for diners to grab a straw and dig in.
