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. Jake’s 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 Jake’s only philosophy.
Burger lovers deserve the best, and Jake’s wants to remind people that they can still get the best burger, made just the way they like it, in a warm and comfortable restaurant that feels like home. That’s how they did it way back when, and that’s what they still do today. Every month, Wayback Burgers features a brand new “Burger of the Month” and “Shake of the Month.” So go ahead– put your elbows on our tables and enjoy your meal. You’ll be glad you came.
