Ghostbusters Menu Offerings from WayBack Burgers

I'll admit I've never heard of Wayback Burgers until this month when I discovered their burger joint on social media. I came across their advertisement celebrating the release of Ghostbusters (2016) on Blu-ray and DVD with menu items inspired by the film. I knew right away that I had to try these Ghostbusters themed offerings, I have a weakness for movie inspired food promotions. When I looked up where their locations were, I feared that I wouldn't be able to experience these ghostly food items for myself. To my surprise, the nearest location was only about a half hour drive. So I grabbed my proton pack and headed over.

I knew right away I was in the right place when a familiar looking spook greeted me in the window. 

I tried out each of their supernatural menu offerings while I was there. Before ordering I didn't fully realize how much food I was getting myself into, I probably shouldn't of ordered the fries. But no regrets here! I definitely ordered enough Ghostbusters grub to bust some ghosts and then some.

It looks like a class 5 full roaming vapor has slimed all over my shake. Just kidding! This is how the shake looks. The Stay Puft Slime Milkshake is a combination of smooth vanilla ice cream with flavors of toasty marshmallows, gooey key lime sauce and mini marshmallows on top. Though my shake didn't come with the mini marshmallows on top but it was all good, it didn't take away from the deliciousness of this shake.

This was the crown jewel of their Ghostbusters themed offerings - it was so good! It was worth the trip out there and future trips back.

The second ghostly offering I tried was the Ghostbustin' Burger. This burger has two beef patties with pepper jack cheese and spicy ghost pepper sauce oozing throughout the burger. I'm usually not a fan of spicy food, I typically stay away from it but I ain't afraid of no burgers! To my surprise it wasn't too spicy and was really good. Better quality then the usual fast food burgers. Even though it wasn't too spicy, I definitely needed that Stay Puft Slime Milkshake with this burger.

It didn't hit me until later that I noticed something was missing from my Ghostbustin' Burger, the little Ghostbusters themed pick as seen on the promotions. I awkwardly asked one of the employees if they had any of these burger picks left and was sad to hear they were all gone. About five minutes later,  the same employee I asked said she found one out in the back. So thank you mysterious employee you made my day.

How cool is this Ghostbusters themed pick?

The last eerie food encounter I tried was the Mac & Cheese Bites with Ghost Pepper sauce. These fried nuggets are filled with cheesy goodness. The sauce that was on the Ghostbustin' Burger was the same sauce that came with these cheesy nuggets. Wait a min... I think I'm missing some Mac & Cheese Bites. I think Slimer took some while I wasn't looking.

I almost forgot to take a picture of these delicious bites, I didn't realize how addicting they were going to be. I can't remember if I have had deep fried macaroni and cheese before. If I haven't, I found a new food to love. Never knew I needed these in my life.

I'm glad I found out about these frightfully fun menu items before they were gone for good, even if it was late in the month. These limited menu items won't be haunting for long, they're available from September 6 until October 31st. If you have a WayBack Burgers location near you, I definitely recommend checking it out especially for that Stay Puft Marshmallow Milkshake, it would make a great Halloween treat!
