A burger chain from Connecticut is opening in Dallas with an absurdly large burger option that no single diner could eat.

Wayback Burgers, which opened a branch in Irving in July 2015, will open its first Dallas location at 13608 Midway Rd. with a menu that includes a nine-patty burger. For the less gluttonous, there are also single, classic double, and triple options.

In addition to burgers, there are milkshakes made by hand, using only fresh milk and hand-dipped ice cream. One wonders how else milkshakes are made, if not by hand, and if other milkshakes use milk that is stale?

There are also crispy and grilled chicken sandwiches; veggie burgers; turkey burgers; salads; and sides, including fries, onion rings, chili, and house-made chips. The decor consists of a warm red barn board interior with white and stainless steel accents.

Local franchisee Babatunde Oyedipe says that the area is a great fit for the brand. "We look forward to bringing excellent service and top-notch burgers, fries, shakes, and more for foodies in Dallas and beyond," he says.

Wayback was founded in 1991 in Newark, Delaware, as Jake's Hamburgers. A simple burger joint, Jake’s soon became several stores before changing its name to Wayback. It currently operates in 26 states with over 100 locations nationally and internationally in Argentina and Saudi Arabia.
