I am so sorry i took my mom to eat there. The order was all wrong. The person that took the order would not listen what I was asking for. Kept interrupting me. It was no supervision. Just a lot of young people.

Cook Out is low on my list of fast food options. This one has gotten our orders wrong each time and the food is just normal - nothing particularly special.

Good quality food and service and a clean restaurant. Serviceable and efficient. Fast food, but it is clean and good quality.

Excellent fast food. I actually purchased Bar B Q and it was very tasty. Economical as well. Drink set up a little messy but acceptable. Parking and drive-thru set up was also tighht and was forced to wait thru drive thru to exit, even though I ate inside.

Great place to go when you don't know what you want but you want something good. Burgers, BBQ, chicken nuggets and tenders, fries, tots, shake, floats. It's just the best. Great for everyone. Super quick, very friendly.

If you are driving South on I95 in North Carolina, make sure to save your appetite and pull off at exit 97, bear to the right, then be sure to stop between Wendy's and Mc Donald's for a most delicious fast food delight!

Every time I have been to cookout the food was terrific. The service is extremely fast. The best milkshakes I've ever had.

The grilled chicken sandwich is always good (get it without mayo or it will be drippy, as it comes with honey mustard normally), fries are excellent, onion rings are perfect, the hot dogs are great, and the ice cream shakes are to DIE FOR! They are made from ice cream from a local creamery and they are TASTY. The service... More

Considering the the fast food motif this is a good option. Unlike many other Cook Out restaurants you can take out or dine in. The food is inexpensive, well prepared and good quality but not of the health food variety. The milk shakes include common, unusual and some very creative. Many are much too sweet so be selective .

We have used them many times for milk shakes. The chocolate is good as are the many flavors of chocolate they offer. When combined with a "plain hamburger" one can make the 25 minute trip, add the condiments at home and make a meal without the shake melting.
