Jake's Wayback Burgers Review and Giveaway #WaybackBurgers

There's nothing quite like a juicy burger to make your taste buds happy.  Give me a burger piled high with cheese, lettuce, and tomato on a fresh pretzel roll and I'll be your friend for life. You can't forget a basket of hand-cut crispy fries to accompany that round lover either. Wash it all down with a chocolate milkshake and it'll be a meal you won't soon forget. When's the last time you had a fabulous burger?

Jake's Wayback Burgers is a delicious burger restaurant that is located in various states in the US.  The establishment offers burgers made from 100% percent fresh, never frozen, ground beef that is cooked to order.  Sink your teeth into a single, classic double, triple, and triple triple which is a 9 patty burger! Why not build your own burger to your liking with such toppings as mushrooms, jalapeños, and grilled onions? The menu also has crispy and grilled chicken sandwiches, veggies burgers, turkey burgers, and fresh salads too.

Pair your burger with a fabulous side like chili cheese fries, mac and cheese bites, or onion rings and you'll have a meal fit for a king.  Don't forget to order a milkshake either.  You won't be able to resist such cool and creamy flavors like cookies and cream, Oreo mud pie, or strawberry banana either.  Jake's offers a burger and milkshake of the month so you'll be back time and time again.  

Before I left my job to have my daughter, I used to work right near Jake's.  I recall going there several times and drooling over how fantastic their burgers were.  When I had the opportunity to go back to the restaurant again for a review, I was very much looking forward to it.

My husband Jay and I took our daughter to the Norwalk, CT location for dinner tonight. While we try to eat moderately healthy, sometimes you just want something delicious and comforting.  Burgers, fries, and milkshakes certainly were on tonight's agenda.

The staff was very friendly as soon as we walked in.  Since we have a 12 month old, we have to go out to dinner fairly early because she goes to bed at 7.  As soon as we placed our order, the employees began preparing our food.  Jay ordered the Alpine burger which is the burger of the month.  I opted for the turkey burger and we split an order of chili cheese fries. Of course we had to enjoy an Oreo mint shake along with our meal too.   Scarlett was excited to chow down on the chicken strips we ordered for her.
Hello pretzel bun lover!

The Alpine Burger consists of two patties with pickled onions, swiss cheese, and peppercorn sauce.  This beauty is served on a pretzel roll which is sure to satisfy.  Jay said the meat was cooked to perfection and tasted fantastic.  The pretzel bun was soft, fresh, and the perfect modern addition to a classic burger.  You can't forget about the melty swiss cheese which gave the burger a nice boost of cheesy goodness.  I was told that the peppercorn sauce had a kick which added an element of flavor that was out of bounds.  All in all, the burger was heartily enjoyed.
I love you, turkey burger.

My turkey burger was utterly delicious as well.  I haven't had a turkey burger in a while and now I know what I've been missing.  This round beauty had a hearty turkey patty that was bursting with juicy flavor in each bite. My tastebuds tasted the burger and said YUM! The lettuce and tomato added a cool component which mixed well with the warm meat.  Each bite was better than the last and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Those layers of cheese are begging to be eaten. 

Everyone knows it would be a sin to not have fries with burgers.  It's just common knowledge, right? If it was just me I would have chosen regular fries, but since my husband wanted to pick we went with what he wanted.  Jay ordered chili cheese fries which wouldn't be my first choice.  They actually weren't bad at all! The piping hot crispy fries were piled high with cheese and chili that beckoned anyone to try them.  Of course I can't resist fries, so I ended up having to give into my cravings.   My taste buds enjoyed the new flavors and hoped chili cheese fries would make an appearance again soon!

Scarlett also thoroughly enjoyed her crispy chicken.  This girl loves to eat anything and everything and was happy to have some chicken. The staff was nice enough to cut the chicken up for her without us asking.  We didn't share the milkshake or the fries with her though. ;)

We finished off the meal with an Oreo mint shake which was delicious.  Combining the tasty flavor of Oreo with mint is genius.  I love mint in absolutely any dessert and of course this one didn't fail to satisfy either.  The cool and creamy mint combined with the chocolate Oreo flavor was fantastic.  Who doesn't love a rich and thick milkshake to end the night with?
I could enjoy this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday all day! 

All in all, we really enjoyed our experience at Jake's WayBack Burgers and look forward to visiting the restaurant again soon.  If you're in Connecticut, it's essential that you make a stop at Jake's soon! Don't forget to order a milkshake.
