“Hand made burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Nice little hamburger joint on Long Beach Road. The present owners have been in place for about a year. They offer hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches and hand cut fries. The fries can be hit or miss, the reason is they pre cook them and then when you order they re fry them (not as good as being French fried when ordered.) This is not luxury so get your burgers and eat outside under the trees on a picnic table or take out the burgers to the beach or home. They offer bottled drinks and water with ice. Good burger, sometimes very good sometimes good. I like it eat there at least once or twice a month. Good thing it is on the way to the beach.

“THE Best Hamburgers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

The Shack doesn't look like much from the road, but don't let that fool you. Great hamburgers, cheeseburgers and hot dogs there. I get them all the way. No inside seating but picnic tables outside, just be aware that the flies may get ya. We take it home or eat in the car to avoid them. Only Pepsi can products inside, but a Coke Machine right outside that gives bottle Coke product drinks. Very reasonable prices. Don't miss this place if you find yourself in Oak Island!!!

“Surprise Burger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

This once was a Hamburger House back in 2002 but had been closed for a while. I guess new owners have taken over the establishment. The burgers are to die for. Burgers, hot dogs, french fries, onion rings are the food of the day. No seating inside either take it home or eat outside on picnic tables. The best fast food anywhere. I am so glad someone has reopened this restaurant.
No more McDonald's.

“If you love hot dogs and hamburgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

this is your joint. Made as you order, not premade and sitting under a hear lamp. No indoor seating but great sandwiches, fries and onion rings. The best in the area in my opinion.
