“A better burger”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

I thought I had discovered a great burger about seven years ago when I first found Five Guys. Today that was topped - by Jake's Wayback Burgers. Fresh cooked to order, moist, beefy, and fairly quick service. Noticed that in addition to the burgers, there are hot dogs, two types of salads (for those who wish to remain heath conscious), grilled chicken sandwich - and MILKSHAKES - thick, creamy, flavorful. Fries were good and the small size was more than enough. BONUS-daily lunch specials to boot! Women - be warned - if it is summer and you are wearing shorts....the metal chairs may be a little cool when you sit! Noticed they do a good carry out business, along with the dine-in.

“Great burger”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

They have a unique buger niche that is much better than fast food. It is a little pricier than going through the drive thu, but it is worth it. The best burger in Milsboro.

“Everything was okay, but not worth the price”
Reviewed 16 November 2012

I tried this place twice and the food is okay, but considering the price it should be off the charts great. The shake is good, but Dairy Queen is better for the price. Burger is okay, but not better than a few of the nicer sit down places on the boardwalk in Rehoboth. And the onion rings are probably not even worth mentioning. It is never busy when I go there, I thought it was fluke the first time, so I tried it again. Good service and place is clean.

“Expensive”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

The burgers are great here and they are fresh however I spend close to $10 for a burger, onion rings and a small shake.
They really need to think about their prices.
