Great prices for some really good food. $5 plates are a good deal (burger/sandwich + 2 sides + drink) and just individual items are just the right price. Big fan of the sides including seasoned fries, hush puppies and onion rings. My family LOVE the shakes (and there is a lot of flavors to pick from). I'd take Five Guys... More

My children love the milk shakes, the food is average food, nothing to shout about. We each got different meals great for young kids , and college kids on a budget.

The food is good and cheap. I don't care who you are, you will find something on the menu to like, but especially the milk shakes and burgers.

This is the place to go for a quick burger and milkshake. They have a variety of burgers, bbq and chicken. The service is very quick and the food is good.

The burger was overcooked and tasted like it had been sitting around in the steamer for a long time. The fries were tasteless and had no salt.

I, had seen a couple of these locations and was curious about the food. I had a hot dog. I truly think I need to go get another dog for almost anywhere else to erase the memory of that one. I don't think I'll be going back anytime soon.

Combo meals with drink starting at $4.99. Located in shopping center. Large dine in area. If you like hush puppies, they sell 10 for 99 cents. They are tasty.

Cookout is the best burger for the price. You can get a real homemade burger at a reasonable price and your sides can actually be a corn dog, which is the best thing after the burger. The milkshakes are your own creation. I always get the strawberry, pineapple and banana shake. Love those big chunks of real fruit.

I ordered a pulled pork sandwich and a peach cobbler milkshake. Both were delicious, especially the milkshake! Husband ordered a burger, shake and fries and proclaimed them delicious as well. We tried this place after or college aged son spoke so highly of its shakes and fries, and we were not disappointed one bit. Not much in the way of... More
