Have you been to Cook Out yet?? If your answer is “no”, then you have a new place to try! Maybe you haven’t even heard of Cook Out and think that it is a brand new restaurant. It was actually founded 26 years ago in Greensboro, NC and now has over 130 locations throughout the South. The idea behind Cook Out is to be able to get great backyard style food, for fast food prices, with excellent service. The menu includes burgers, hot dogs, chicken, fries, over 40 types of milkshakes (peanut butter/banana is amazing!) and much more. Here is a link to the full menu: http://cookout.com/index.php/online-menu.
I was so excited to hear that the Fredericksburg location was opening a few months ago. My wife and I used to live in Greensboro, NC, and we would always stop once or twice (or three times) while visiting old friends and family. Most of their other locations have a double drive-through without any inside seating. I was happy to see that our location also includes seating. During the first few weeks of business, the lines were wrapped around the building at all hours of the day. This showed me that I wasn’t the only one excited about our newest restaurant in the ‘Burg.
Once the lines died down I decided that it was the perfect opportunity for a father/daughters date night. I took the girls and it was a great time with great food! I got the Cook Out Style tray which includes a drink and two sides (over ten great choices). You have to try the Cook Out Style burger which includes: mustard, onion, homemade slaw, and homemade chili. It is the best!! Pretty much all of the menu items are kid friendly, and my daughter has loved it every time we have gone! The bottom line is that it is a great restaurant to take the family out for great food at a really reasonable price! Let me know your thoughts about Cook Out after you try it yourself. It is located in the Burlington Coat factory shopping center on Route 3.
