The burgers were prepared so quickly we did not even have a chance to get a table. That is a good thing. One of the ice machines had no ice, and at least two fountain drinks needed changed but even so it was still worth the 30 minute drive. Generous cheese fries, tasty burgers and shakes. For the price, I... More

We stopped to grab a nite while travelling to PA. It is located beside a Wendy's so half of us went to Wendy's and half to Cook Out to see who was faster. Cook Out won hands down! The selection is not as big as that in Wendy's but they do charbroiled burgers that were outstanding. The fries were almost... More

Good bar bq, quick drive thru, at at a good price. It didn't taste like most fast food places. Convenient for taking food back with you to your home or hotel.

Food, price and service were great but place was very grimy. Table was clean but bathroom doors were sticky and cleaning agent build up along wall corners. Opening the door was overwhelmed with bad bleach smelled mixed with rotten meat. Wife wanted to eat here so we stayed. I would not have eaten there. If I were to eat there... More

Good fast food. They have your actual grilled burgers and chicken sandwiches. If we had one near us in PA we would be there all the time. The milkshakes are an added bonus that are AWESOME!!!! They are even so reasonably priced!!!!!!!!

We were pleased to see a Cook Out when we arrived in Harrisonburg. When we lived in GA, we enjoyed dining at Cook Out. We were not disappointed. The burgers were as delicious and juicy as we remembered. This is a favorite establishment for comfort food.

If you need a inexpensive place for a quick meal this is it. Sandwich meals for 4.99 and very good milk shakes. Service was good and the restaurant was clean.

Mrs Too and Ben, for years, had been watching Cook Out stores pop up along our routes to and from Florida and the Carolinas. Finally this past winter we stopped for lunch at the Cook Out in Wilson, N.C., and were bowled over by the quality, variety, and above all, the pricing. Last weekend, we were on the way home...

Hard for me to drive by a cookout and not get a milkshake. Passed this one after a visit to the skyline drive. I had the peanut butter banana and as always was a thick delicious milkshake. I love the decor of this cookout. Most that I have been to are either drive thru only or just average inside. This... More
