Cook-out in Asheville
It appears that a Cook-out burger place is being built at the site of the old IHOP on Tunnel Road at White Pine Drive. No news as to when it will be open but it doesn't appear that it will be all that long. I've never eaten at one but a quick search here gives them okay reviews. Any experienced customers out there with opinions?
Cook Out is pretty good. As mentioned, lots of milkshake choices(50 or so). For my money, the best thing on the menu is a small burger, Cheddar Style.
Don't go to Cook Out expecting fine dining. But as far as fast food goes--hot dogs, burgers, shakes--it's the best you can get (besides maybe local non-chains). The burgers are always good, you can get any two sides--including chicken nuggets, corn dogs, hot dogs, onion rings, fries, hush puppies, and more--and a "huge" (I think 32oz) drink for $5 or less. They also have great BBQ and really good chicken sandwiches. Lots of good combinations too, like "Out West" style. All-in-all, best fast food place I know of. And I've never seen one with a sanitation grade below 99.5 (and I've eaten at 10 or more unique Cook Out restaurants).
