Thumbs up Burger shack

Well I must say I went there expecting to pretty much hate it. I was nicely disappointed. I ordered the doublebacon cheeseburger/fries and a drink. I was a little shocked at $11 and some change for lunch. I did have a little issue with the sweet tea, it had a very strange after taste to it, I dumped it out and got a pepsi. Burger came and the first thing I looked at was my fries. Hot, crispy and golden brown. Excellent! then the burger. it was quite good. the bacon could have been a little more crisp, but otherwise a very good lunch.
As I sat eating and folks were ordering, I would watch the expressions on their face when told the price of their lunch. Most seemed to say WTF?
I would go there again, but with the prices they have, it wont be a frequent hangout.

SemperFly, I think that your review, with the exception of the fries, pretty much details Burger Shack. The burger is good, when I went there a couple weeks ago the fries were not crispy, but were dark as if over cooked. Maybe they improved on the taters! The overall view was that it is over priced for what it is. Also, if you have ever been to a Five Guys Burgers And Fries you would see the vast difference in the place they are trying to copy. Still, as with your view, I'll probably go there again just for the convenience of it being the best burger close to where I usually stay in Branson. Although the new Blue Man Grill might get more of my business if it is as good as it sounds.

Maybe everyone was eating at Shoneys and parking in Burger Shack parking!

I think Burger Shack will be out of biz for awhile now. Pics I've seen don't look good.

Such a shame for a new business that just started.

Yes, and also this is a tough time of year for employees of most business's and to get a job and then have it end so quickly is no doubt very discouraging.

I saw the owner of a 'new business' interviewed on our news last night. They didn't identify the business, but his name was Rasmussen, isn't he the guy that owns Burger Shack?

A couple threads with some review posts:

Not a bad burger, but not my top choice either. They have beeen doing very good since opening. I hope they can recover from the damage soon!
