Wayback Burgers began in 1991 as Jake's Hamburgers with a single restaurant in Newark, DE which still occupies its original location on Route 273. A simple, unassuming "burger joint," Jake's soon became several stores and home to one of the region's favorite burgers.
Jakes Hamburgers had always served big, juicy hand-made burgers and real milkshakes, crafted to order by a friendly staff. Delivering the freshest, most delicious food possible was Jakes only philosophy.
Our warm red barn board interior with white and stainless steel accents are modeled after the great American roadside burger joint (think Rt. 66, back before there was such a thing as fast food). Go ahead-- put your elbows on our tables and enjoy your meal. You'll be glad you came.
Every month, Wayback Burgers features a brand new "Burger of the Month" and our "Shake of the Month." And, burgers are only the beginning: House-made potato chips, all beef hot dogs, marinated chicken sandwiches, turkey burgers, specialty sandwiches and even fresh salads are available as well.
