Perfect Dessert

The BEST Shakes in all different flavors. The shakes include fruit if you like. I Loved the Banana Pineapple Shake. Also Chocolate & Cherry. Also Banana Fudge. The lines are long but worth the wait.

It was a rainy day and the lines were long and slow. The wait was worth it, though, and we enjoyed our chicken sandwich and strips for lunch. Would return, but not if lines are long.

My husband and I recently moved to North Carolina from Cincinnati. We didn't have this luxury as a choice for food in the Midwest. When we moved in, Cookout was super close and something "new". We were not disappointed, the food was delicious! The only place I know of that you can get a sandwich and your sides as chicken... More

This is a drive-in. You drive your car to the window, place your order, and drive ahead to pick it up. There was a line of cars at the drive-in when I was there, even though it was a bit late for lunch. I can understand why. What a juicy hamburger! (I had "steak style.") What a thick shake. (I...

We are from Texas where Whataburger reigns and I have to say this was just as good and honestly better. The milkshakes were the best we have ever had. We will definitely be going back here.

Love the shakes, the banana berry has chunks of fruit and berry in it yummmmy 😊. Hamburgers are so good, juicy and always made the way you want, my hubby gets the grilled chicken and loves it, Cole slaw is really good, and prices are very reasonable. You get in and out fast. Never disappointed. Love this place, my go-to... More

Stopped in double sided drive though which moves quick. Burgers, chix sandwiches with all condiments. Prices are very reasonable. Combos get 2 sides. We tries fries, onion rings and quesadilla. All were OK. Better than some other fast food joints.
