Way back in July 2021 we let you know that Wayback Burgers, a fast-casual burger chain based out of Connecticut, is coming to Montgomery County with a new location in Gaithersburg. Permanent signage has now been erected, and though there is a tarp partially covering the sign, it’s evident that it says “Wayback Burgers”.
Construction on the restaurant began a while ago, but there have been plenty of delay before recent progress. The restaurant will be located at The Shops of Potomac Valley shopping center at 12121 Darnestown Rd. in the location that was formerly home to an AT&T store and a tanning salon before that.
Wayback serves burgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, milkshakes and salads along with a variety of regional selections.
The restaurant opened its first location in neighboring Delaware back in 1991. It was then known as “Jake’s Hamburgers” before the name changed to “Jake’s Wayback Burgers” in 2010, and dropping the “Jake’s” portion of the name in recent years. Wayback Burgers now has over 150 locations worldwide.
No opening timeframe has been provided, but we’ll be able to check-in to see how construction is progressing as it continues to move forward. Featured photo courtesy of Tod Fishman.
