Late night ice cream cravings led us straight to the drive-through at Cook-Out. Who knew there would be at least 40 different flavors of milkshakes! The Heath bar and vanilla was the cat's meow. And so thick I had to eat it with a spoon.

My go-to restaurant when I'm traveling on the Interstate's. Their burgers are always good, my favorite is the "Cook Out" Style with chili and coleslaw on it. That's my dad liked his burgers 😊. Their shakes taste like homemade. You won't go wrong.

The food could have come from a major amusement park. Really - generic burgers and fries. Skimpy on the fries and the burger was dry with a plain bun. Well, I guess if you want to get a back yard burger that's just cooked meat...More
