Burger Shack, signage, and everything.

Well, shoot. I haven't been in town for a couple weeks or so, been bass fishing in Oregon smack dab where the fires have been. However, I hate that yet another "kinda different" burger joint/restaurant hS gone out of business in Branson. I've had decent fast food there in the past, always a fast spot to get a hot dog. But have noticed for last month or two some pretty bad reviews on TripAdvisor. Who knows, maybe the employees knew their jobs were ending so just quit trying. But I am sad to see it go...one less choice to be had when hungry...

Five Guys - the burger joint they copied is still around - and they have good burgers and fries!

Nope. Burger Shack was kind of a cheap copy. Same theme with the free peanuts, and tater sacks. Just didn't have the huge burger, and over filled fries.
It wasn't a particularly bad burger. Just not a 5 Guys. Also fell way short of Billy Bob's Dairyland, Pickin' Porch, or Dannas!
As a side note, Nolan Fogle told me he had never heard of 5 Guys when he and his partners opened Burger Shack.... Yeah, right.

Yeah, right. And he probably never heard of In-n-Out either, which I personally feel 5 Guys are a sub-quality copy of. Now wish THEY would come to Branson...but seems as if Denver is as far east as they want to be currently. But I'd happily settle for Back Yard Burger to reopen in Branson in the location of Burger Shack. Always immensely enjoyed their grilled burgers and dogs...

In-N-Out Burger won't go to any location that can't be supplied with their beef unfrozen. No freezers in their operation.

The wife and I eat at In-N-Out for $12.60 and the same meal at the 5 Guys is $18.00 plus.

In addition to the good quality food it's fun watching how happy and hard working the employees are at In-N-Out are.

Never been far enough West to be in one. Sure like to though. Sounds like kind of a burger version of Chick-Fil-A.

Have been to an In and Out in the Dallas area. Food was good but not outstanding. Employees were hard working but I wouldn't say they were on the level of Chick-Fil-A.

Have tried 5 Guys, too. Would also say food was good but not outstanding.

Both are much better than standard fast food but not as good as burgers at home.
