“Good Quick Burger”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

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.

“No quesadillas???”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

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 told them that was the only reason I stopped there! When we went to leave, the only saving grace was the manager ran out to let us know there was another Cook Out about 15 minutes down the road. I appreciated him telling us that, but we were only given a limited amount of time to be able to eat so we had to find somewhere else.

“Review your order before leaving!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

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 slightly above average for fast food, but the shorting of orders is frustrating. Milk shakes are the high point of the menu.
If you are still determined to go, CHECK YOUR ORDER BEFORE LEAVING THE DRIVE-THROUGH!

“Mr. Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The Cook Out is very typical of restaurants in this price range. It is much better, however, than O'Charleys. More in line with Lucky 32.
