With a name like Wayback Burger, you know you are walking into a feel good, diner-Esq experience from another era. Picture poodle skirts, drive-ins,  jukeboxes and Chevy’s cruising the streets.I fully expected to see Ron Howard and his fictional teenage entourage from American Graffiti walk through the door as I approached the counter and open kitchen. The well-lit burger joint is a counter-style, family restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating, but no matter where you choose to sit, you’ll have to leave your diet at home! Whether you are on a vacation on beautiful Hilton Head or a local, running kids home from evening sports, Wayback is a crowd-pleaser that will leave you satisfied.

Some of the menu’s guilty pleasures include fried mac- n-cheese, onion rings, Irish nachos, and chili cheese fries! Signature burgers are “build your own” with options such as Chipotle, Philly or Carolina style for the cheeseburger connoisseur. If burgers aren’t your thing then perhaps a fish, chicken, turkey or veggie burger would hit the spot. Yes, there are even salads for those who can resist the comfort food. I challenge you not to steal a fry or onion ring from someone else’s basket. Since I am a non-meat eater ordered a fish sandwich and onion rings. Served piping hot with a flakey but crisp exterior on a soft, warm bun with tartar sauce-it almost melted in the mouth. The onion rings were out of this world! Yes, I ate every last bite. Suffice to say; I did not have room for one of their well-known milk shakes, but I will head right for the shake upon my next visit. Did I mention Wayback has kids meals? They do! Just $5.99 including a drink.

This food brings back a flood of memories, with the help of the subtle, archived soundtrack playing in the background and the vintage newsprint liners in the food baskets.The laid-back staff brings your order to your table. With glimpses of the Broad Creek in the distance, the patio seating is a nice touch and a great option for those with young ones who are apt to throw fries or people who just like people-watching. And thank you Wayback chose Shelter Cove Towne Center to call home, so we can all walk and shop off those extra, most delicious calories!
