Cookout has a variety of different sandwiches and plates. It does not have an indoor eating area. It is worth the trip to any cookout restaurant.

The milkshakes are the best. They serve food too, but all I need is that thick chocolate chocolate milkshake, and maybe some fries.

First time visit, the fast food is extremely good and quick. The building has two drives through on both sides for quick service. This restaurant is not design for customers inside. The attendant was professional and pleasant. The restaurant grounds were well kept and close too many other restaurants. I had a corn dog that was fantastic, especially, since I... More

Stopped on trip north on I-95. Great burgers - they are "cook out" grilled flavor - and great value. As noted in many reviews, there are often errors (got wrong kind of tea) so double check. No seating - it is to go. Worth a stop.

I have only tried the burgers... I get the huge, which consist of two gigantic meat patties on a small bun lol ... My daughter and I love the shakes, but my husband was indifferent he said they were to small and he they tasted bland to him. The cajun fries can be good based upon who is seasoning them.

Hard to believe that you can get food this good from a drive thru - and a fast drive thru at that. We love their BBQ, burgers, onion rings & shakes. Now if you are like me and like BBQ sauce on your chopped pork, you need to ask for it. Theirs comes without sauce but really good coleslaw. Everything... More

My grandchildren range in age from 8 to 16 and we needed a place after 10 p.m. that served a take out dinner menu. Cook Out is very reasonably priced, fast and has something for just about everyone.

2 lines of drive thru. Slow. Ordinary stuff. Be forewarned that the cheese dog has NO hot dog in it! Speaker system was awful and order was repeated back and forth several times. Shakes very thick so spoon necessary. 1st experience. Don't need to try again.
