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.

We stopped at this Cook Out as I had a hankering for quesadillas. I wasn't aware they didn't have dine in until we parked (we aren't from around here, as the locals say). We stood at the window for a while waiting to order and when I went to order the quesadillas, they said they had none. NO QUESaDILLAS! I... More

We buy from the Cook Out every once in awhile, though every time we do, we are shorted in our order. We always lack orders of fries, onion rings and hot dogs and decide each time to never go back.

The food is really good but the portions are just sooooo small. I'm a small eater and still have to order to BBQ sandwiches in order to be satiated. The shakes are great as well. However the prices are a little high for the portion size.

Dozens of different flavors of shakes, they're addicting! Pecan pie has chunks of crust and pecans, watermelon is vanilla ice cream with chunks of watermelon... You get the idea.

Great food. either to eat in or take home. The shakes are to Die for.100 different flavors wish i could try them all. The place is clean, the staff is nice,and the service is fast, and at a price you cant beat. You get more food for your money.What else can you ask for
