COOKOUT in N.C.

Anyone else tried this place? Not bad for FF.

    I totally forgot about Cook Out! My wife enjoyed their milkshakes and flurries. I have to admit they were great. As were the malts.

    Was at a Cookout fastfood place in Richmond recently. Good food (for fast food) at very good prices. Friendly,fast service also.

    Cookout is a decent FF place.  There are many in NC, a few near Richmond, VA, as well as one in Charlottesville, VA.  Decent burgers.  Great shakes.  Okay hush puppies.  Skip their 'cue.

    Out of curiosity, was it the one in Charlottesville, VA that you thought sucked?  We did not like that one very much.  The 4 or 5 other locations we've been to were pretty decent.

    I thought the quality of burger was similar to 5 guys (I know, not saying much for some of you). Fries where just ordinary but for 5 or 6 bucks less than 5 Guys for same order of burger,fries and Coke I would choose Cookout every time. None anywhere near home though.

    Haven't tried it and never heard about it until now.
     
    That said, any place that offers Eastern NC-style chopped pork BBQ & hush puppies will get me to stop and give it a try!
     
    Every now and then 'previously unheard of' FF joints really reward a stop.  I stumbled upon Five Guys' original - (and then, only) - location back in the mid- '80's and was thus one of their original customers.  I've been a loyal customer since and was mighty happy to see them expand into Texas a few yers ago.
     
    Thanks to Mar52's recent post here on Roadfood I discovered Sam's Southern Cooking.  We went to their Sherman location Saturday past and I'm going to go to their center-city Dallas location for lunch today, even though their 'hood is a bit shady.

    They have a couple around Knoxville.  I have never visited their location.  I do know that their some of their locations did not rate very well with their health scores as reported in the Knoxville News Sentinel.  This was a few months ago.  They may have improved now????

    Sometimes failing a health inspection can put you in pretty lofty company.

    Positive thought-they are cheap and milk shakes are OK.  I'd rather pay more for a hamburger and fries from Five Guys.

    Five Guys wins every time...even at the inflated price.
