Like your favorite song... or that friendship formed in grade school.
Wayback Burgers is all about creating great memories that stand the test of time. That's why our restaurants are warm and inviting - comfy places where you can hook up with good friends, put your elbows on the table, and simply be yourself.
Kind of like the Great Store of yesterday, where the locals would gather around the stove for great stories and good companionship and let the world go by. Everything felt familiar and - almost in an indescribable way - "just right."
Rest assured: You can still get those same feelings today. Because at Wayback Burgers, we're a throwback to a simpler, more genuine time.
And as we continue to grow, our humble beginnings still represent everything we stand for.
By this time, we're really cooking. We introduce our now-famous Burger of the Month and Milkshake of the Month, serving fun foods like our Ruben Burger and Buffalo Mac and Cheese Burger... and innovative flavors like our Mango Milkshake and Orange Creamsicle Milkshake.
In fact -to the icy delight of our guests - this is the year we launch our Free Shake Day, which is celebrated annually on the first day of Summer.
No growing pains here. With demand through the roof, Jake's Hamburgers starts franchising our down-home look and feel to operators and owners nationwide.
After all: Who are we to deny our fans?
Who saw this coming? Our Triple Triple Burger -- with its nine (count 'em: nine!) patties and nine slices of cheese topped with lettuce and tomato on a toasted bun -- is introduced.
As you can imagine, it leaves guests stunned... not to mention a tad stuffed.
In fact, some people use it as a great excuse to take the rest of the day (or night) off.
Having been around now for 22 years, we feel entitled to take a few liberties with our naming conventions. Hence, we roll out our Wayback Classic -- a tasty two-patty concoction. Try it "Our Way" topped with lettuce, tomatoes, ketchup, mustard, onions and pickles. Or, put your own spin on it and create your own masterpiece.
Great things just continue to happen. Our parent, Jake's Franchising, partners with Uncle Willie's BBQ.
Boy, are we big-time now or what?
Incredible! We’ve been creating delicious specialty and made-to-order burgers for 25 years now — and going (and growing!) stronger than ever!
To mark the occasion, we hosted a huge celebration on our anniversary date. As part of the nationwide festivities, we offered the Wayback Classic for just $3.99. Thanks to all who participated!
As we look forward to our next 25 years, we promise to provide the same great quality and service that’s become our hallmark!
Currently operating in 26 states at over 120 locations — as well as internationally with our Argentina, Brunei and Saudi Arabia restaurants — Wayback Burgers has plans to open in 33 countries, including Pakistan and Alberta, Canada. We’ve also got expansion plans for Chile, Guatemala, Nigeria, India and Western Malaysia.
