Cook-Out restaurant?

This is a smallish southeastern chain - we have one opening soon close to my office. Does anyone have experience with them?

  1. We ate at one in Maryville, TN. Pretty good I guess. Mostly a fast food restaurant. Burgers were fine. I don't think it's anything special.

    They did have Bible verses on all the cups and napkins etc.

      They're opening on Harrodsburg Road right by Virginia Ave./Red Mile. It's close to work, so I'll probably check it out. I can drink out of a bible-y cup I guess.

        So does (or did) In-N-Out Burger. I guess you could say you leave "holy" satisfied.

      2. You have to do one thing for me: go there and get a peanut butter fudge milkshake.

        It will change your life.

        1. When working in NC a few years back, I patronized the locations in High Point (a few times) and Wilson (more or less weekly). Pretty good hot dogs, and I liked being able to get a mocha shake. I also liked the fact that they were open late.

          I couldn't tell you much about the interiors, since I used the drive-thru and brought the food back to the office or hotel. Service seemed friendly.

          1. I was in Richmond, KY earlier today when I saw a Cook-Out. I thought of this thread and because it was after lunchtime I stopped in.

            I had:
            A double burger with grilled onions, bacon and cheese.
            Cole slaw
            Unsweetened iced tea

            I wasn't going to get cole slaw but the lady who took my order said it would be cheaper if I got another side. OK

            Burger, really good. Too hot to pick up and eat it. I had to let it cool off a little. Cheese was super melty, bacon was crisp and still hot from the grill.

            Fries, generous amount. Thick with skin on. Fresh and almost too hot to eat.

            Cole slaw. Eh, superfine chopped cabbage and mayo.

            I was there about 1:30. Place was packed but they moved everyone through quckly.

            I have to take back my previous comments. It's excellent for side of the interstate fast food.

            1. They have very good burgers and great milkshakes...40 different flavors.
