“Great Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Great food, great prices, great staff. I love the atmosphere of the place as well. The cajun chicken sandwich is amazing and their chicken quesadillas are really good. The lunch tray is a great deal and comes with a lot of food. Definitely recommend this place!

“Excellent Always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

Every location, every city and state we have been in.. Cookout has always been on point. I have tried more that 7 flavors of their milkshakes and intend to do more. Top fav was caramel fudge & peach cobbler. Cajun Chicken sandwich w fries & hushpuppies. Great place to hang late or pick up lunch.

“Probably won't go back - there are better options”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We tried this new burger joint because we had herad they had good shakes. The shake we ordered was probably the high point of the meal. The chicken wrap was a joke (think 1 McNugget with a little lettuce & tomato in a small flour tortilla). The "2 sides" that came with my burger would be considered half portions at most places and were not particularly good (although the portions were small, I didn't wish I had any more when I finished what they gave me). The burger was also very small and the presentation was horrible (smashed up in a piece of foil). My burger patty did have a decent grilled flavor but that's about the only positive I can give it.

“disappointing again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Thought we would try this place again. Unless you get the very small portioned value meal the rest of the menu is very confusing. The burgers are ok but nothing great. when they wrap your burgers to go they wrap them in aluminum foil and then smash them down. So when you open it up you have a flatted out burger. Nothing stands out about this place.

“Waste of time & waste of money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Save your money and some time by avoiding this Cook-Out joint and going another 100 yards to the nearby Steak and Shake instead. Steak and Shake at Crossroads Mall serves better burgers anyway. And Steak & Shake calls them STEAK Burgers (instead of hamburgers) for a reason. They're made from ground steak cuts, not the cheaper cuts most hamburger comes from.
