If you are on a budget - this is the place for you. We can feed a family of 5 for about $25. The food comes out quick and it's really good.

Haven't hit this spot in a while. Lovely affordable meals. Plenty of selections on the cheap. The only issue I have with this place is the crazy drive thru. But besides that I enjoyed the food and speedy service.

Heard it was good for a quick lunch so we stopped in the other day. My group had decent burgers but I mistakenly ordered the BBQ. Very dissatisfied. It was nasty wet, more like a pile of grits or oatmeal consistency. It had very little taste too which come to think of it, might have been a good thing afterall.

I stopped by at lunch today and was pleasantly surprised. This was my first visit to a Cook out and I enjoyed it. Had a single burger, fries and sweet tea for $7. The burger was really good and the fries are ok. The place had a nice ambiance, the staff was fast & friendly and I would definitely visit... More

The restaurant itself is an eclectic mix of timber, sheet metal, concrete and stone and is very interesting to look at. The food is "Bill's BBQ" average. They have a wide selection of milkshakes, which I didn't try.

We heard this place is a must stop and the BBQ was exceptional. First mistake we made was not going with the name. It's called cookout hamburgers we should have gone with a burger! The pork BBQ comes as a dinner or a sandwich. The sandwich makes sense but the dinner is just a pile of pulled pork. Who eats... More

I was talked into going here for dinner (drive through) by my wife after I seen a few around and her good things. Well let me tell you that this place is the WORST burger joint I have ever been to. The Rally's that closed down was better this this place. The burger was SOOOOO small even though I ordered... More
