The food is wonderful and you can't beat the prices. This is a go to place before events with the family, as you can get a meal, a milkshake and walk away without breaking your budget.

Hamburger restaurant a step above the usual burger joint. 40 flavors of milk shakes and okay burgers. The kids loved it. The shakes were very good. We went back two more times just for the shakes. The burgers are average.

Great grilled burgers, you can select from several different sizes, dont like that cheese is .40 more, but then, a lot of fast food places dont take off the price if you dont want cheese! Everything tastes fresh, fantastic shakes!!!

Decided to stop by this Cook Out for lunch after a tour of U. VA, since it is one of our family's favorites. We ordered the tray with chicken strips, fries and beef quesadilla. Everything was wonderful as usual although the quesadilla was flavorful, but...More
