Wayback Burgers began in 1991 as Jake's Hamburgers with a single restaurant in Newark, DE. Jake's soon became several stores and home to one of the region's favorite burgers. Jake's Hamburgers had always served big, juicy handmade burgers and real milkshakes, crafted to order by a friendly staff. Delivering the freshest, most delicious food possible was Jake's only philosophy. Fast forward 20 years: Jake's wanted to remind people that they can still get a better 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.
