Wayback Burgers

Review №1

This place is great! If you get the burger "how it comes" , I'd recommend going with double patties. The meat to veggie ratio is spot on. Others have mentioned that this burger place sets the gold standard for burgers in town. I'd agree. Also agree it's pricey, but sort of Chevy vs. Cadillac you definitely get what you pay for.

This place is Amazing- best burgers around hands down! I work In Lansing so a coworker put me onto the 9 patty monster - it was great!!! Good flavor great prices and I've been a few times now- I'll keep coming back for sure!!

Review №3

I stopped by here today with my sister to grab a bite while she was in town. The service was great and the food was stellar. I have to say this was the best burger I've eaten outside of my kitchen. The onion rings were perfect: crisp yet able to bite into without the onion being pulled out of the batter. I'm definitely going back, even if it is a bit of a drive across town for me.

Review №4

Ordered 1 single burger with onion rings and a malt plus 1 double burger with fries and a malt. Food was nothing special but it cost us $39....absurd price. No service, order and pickup at counter.

Review №5

All I have to say is this is where the bar is set. The burger is just the perfect amount of grease and meat on this double bacon burger. The fries are deliciousness, totally hand cut not frozen. A little pricey at $13.09 but, it's well worth it. Frwhly made right in front of you. Can't beat it, best burger place. Very clean and the staff was very polite. I say YES to Wayback but, it should probably be called RightNow.

Review №6

Absolutely the best phenomenal Burger ever!!! Cooked to order... owner and staff polite and courteous made sure things were perfect respectful... Definitely will make the trip back to see them again

Excellent burgers and good fries. Onion rings were just ok. Was kinda pricey.

Always love their burgers! Quick and delicious!

Review №20

This little hole in the wall place pops up on my IG feed all of the time. If it didn't, I never would have known about it. Very glad it does.Kind of hard to see from the street, inside is long and narrow . Kitchen area is small, but is very clean. You can see how everything is made.Food is very high quality, very fresh, very tasty. Tastes like burgers used to taste. Chocolate shake was hand spun and very thick.Cost for 2 double combos with everything and one shake is just shy of $30.00. (a touch pricey, but you will pay for the quality.)Glad I finally made it here.

Review №21

Have good burgers tad bit high on the price but its better than fast food burgers. Ill definitely try them again.

Review №22

Burger here were moist and delicious. Bacon was cripsy, and the toppings were fresh. Got the onion rings and a chocolate shake, all were very good.

Review №23

Review №24

A little pricey, but the food is GOOD!!

The taste of their Double Bacon burger is the best

Review №26

Good food and great customer service!

Review №27

Very delicious meal. Everything was very satisfying. The burger was super juicy and all the vegetables and bacon was super fresh also the best onion rings in town hands down.

Review №28

The burgers are really good and I like the options that they have for building your own. The french fries are really good too. The workers were friendly and they made my order quickly and accurately. The prices are in line with most burger restuarants.

Review №29

Son of owner is nice and caring

Review №30

Not the same Wayback burger that I had a while back maybe 9 months ago. Meal looked great but burger tasted like low quality meat and lacked flavor. Fries were a good serving but had zero salt and flavor. Much to be desired here.

Review №31

Nice staff! Tasty burgers!!! I mostly order online for lunch. My food is always ready on time!

Review №32

Price and the shacks aren't good at all way to liquidity

Review №33

Love the flavor, I love this place but most important I love the SERVICE! Great customer service from management

Review №34

Good customer service they following very clean an food was great

Review №35

Ordered with people from work. The Burger was amazing. I didnt think the price was bad because I thought it would be like a bar burger, which I have trouble finishing. I finished the burger and was still Hungary. I am not a big eater. Went to KFC within 2 hours and got a two pc. Chicken meal to fill me up.

Review №36

Best burger I have ever paid for. Super clean restaurant, and not to mention; ultra clean bathrooms. The staff was amazing, friendly and they nailed our order. 10/10 will be back!

Review №37

Great little burger place, home style burgers

Review №38

Chicken strips are small as heck and didn't taste good at all. They charge too much. Burgers were okay For drive thru. Wish I could go back. Wayback!

Review №39

Burger was okay..... Fries were okay...... Soft drink was as to be expected..... Almost $11, not okay! First time here just a couple weeks ago. I'm tired of paying over $10 for a burger lunch. From now on the only time I'll consider paying this amount for a burger is when I'm at the airport and starving. It's no wonder McDonald's is always busy at lunch time...... It's called value. Cashier was pleasant. Remember, for a family of four your looking at $50 out the door for average food with a cool name.

Review №40

They have the best burger in town

Review №41

Fantastic burger, well made with fresh ingredients! Portions were well done. I got the classic double and my wife got a chicken sandwich. We got large fries and the "cup of summer" shake vanilla and chocolate, which was great.For a drink, fries and a burger, the value was great and my wife and I left feeling very satisfied!Love it, thank you.

Review №42

Yummy food, excellent service

Review №43

If they aren't the best in Lansing point me elsewhere! Cause they're my favorite in Lansing!

Review №44

Loved this place. Would highly recommend. I had a hamburg and my husband had the bbq sliders. Can't wait to go back and try one of their milkshakes.

Review №45

Use to be better now its kind over priced fast food. A burger onion rings and a shake will set you back over 20$.

Review №46

Good was great service is a issue. 2 people working or supposed to be working. When we got there we stood at the counter for 5 minutes while they played of their phones and ignored us.

Review №47

Best burger and onion rings I've had in a while...possibly ever. The buffalo chicken tenders were also amazing. Definitely recommend.

Review №48

Review №50

Review №51

Very nice place. Great burgers and fries. Definitely worth stoping in for lunch.

Review №52

Average flavor- nothing special. Hubby ordered the double bacon cheese burger and I had the chicken BLT. Nothing to write home about. Friendly staff.

Review №53

Food is high quality and amazing. Service is exceptional. Quiet little hidden gem. I will tell everyone about it. New favorite!

Review №54

A little pricey, but great for a fast food burger.

Review №55

Best burgers in town hands down

Review №56

Really good! Def take advantage of the 'craft your own!'

Review №57

Mid-Michigan's best kept secret for burgers, fresh and hot. Highly recommend going there. Friendly people with excellent service, but don't expect that order is going to be ready as soon as you lay your money down, as they don't pre cook the burgers and leave them setting around wrapped in paper under a heat lamp for 20 minutes. Well worth the few extra minutes. You won't be disappointed.

Review №58

It was Delicious. I ordered the pretzel bites with cheese instead of fries. They were the best pretzel bites. Its pricey, but you get you get quality and that's important.

Review №59

Absolutely SPOT ON fresh hamburger, made to order with all the great fixins' to your liking. The hamburger was VERY tasty and packed full of the juicy drippings that you could not contain in your mouth while biting into the burger. Make sure that plate is placed on the table securely below your chin! The chili cheese fries made with real, homemade chili with kidney beans, ground chuck beef, tangy sauce and onions; real shredded cheddar cheese. The meal tasted as if prepared inn your own back yard.

Review №60

It was great!

Review №61

Root beer is on point! Fried Mac and Cheese bites are excellent! I decided to go with the "Cheeeeesy" burger. I enjoyed it very much. Everything was very fresh and hot. Interior decor is very appealing and the outside seating area is really a plus!

Review №62

Burgers were spot on i had the rodeo burger was perfect. Fries were great too!! If your in the area definitely try the food you won't regret it!!

Review №63

Bit expensive. Pretty basic smash bugers. Gotta go try it at least once.

Review №65

First time here, tried the Das Bierburger and mac n cheese bites. Very good. Burger was very juicy and delicious.

Review №66

The drinks and burgers are great. The service is wonderful. I'm not sure if they do this all the time, but they brought the food to my table. It might not seem like a big deal, but those little things show that the staff really enjoy giving the best service possible.

Review №82

Good food

Review №83

I ordered lunch from here and was not impressed. My burger looked like it came from the local backyard bbq not a good one at that. Also got fries with bacon and scallions and onion rings. As the onion rings were great the fries hand like two little specs of bacon and no scallions and I ordered extra scallions. I finally had the funds to eat here and heard alot of great things about them just to be let down.

Review №84

I was very impressed with the cleanliness of this restaurant. I had a great first experience, the cook was friendly and the food delicious. I highly recommend!

Review №85

I finally tried it for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised. It's a great addition to the Lansing area. Great tasting food, good prices for how much you get. I love that they have fried macaroni and cheese so much. And they have creative burger options and good shakes. Nice atmosphere. Everyone should definitely try it.

Review №86
