My husband had never been here and I talked him into stopping. We got shakes and they were so good!! The employees were fast at ordering and fast at delivering. We will definitely stop again.

Every single time I go I always feel like I'm inconveniencing the staff by ordering. I always feel rushed and my food is either a hit or miss if it was made correctly.

Bought a tea for 99 cents, total was 1.06 & gave the girl working the window 1.25 & she never opened the window again after handing me my tea. She asked, "did we forget something?" I said, "umm yeah my change?" & she looked at me like I was stupid before slowly handing me my change. Won't go back.

The service was strangely slow considering there was no one in the restaurant. But, this is always a group favorite and the food was as expected.

We went to the one on Hillsboro Road in Durham, NC For a little building they have an extensive menu - burgers, chicken, hotdogs, BBQ, milkshakes and more.

We had fabulous strawberry milkshakes and hotdogs (all the way) today...what a treat! Since the dog was in the car, we pulled over to a shady parking space nearby. Too bad they don't have outdoor tables!

I got the combo with a spicy chicken sandwich, chicken quesadilla, hush puppies and a float. All was very good and it was plenty of food, but easy on the wallet.

Not sure about the food here. It's a small drive thru. We've only had the milkshakes. About 100 flavor options, and if they don't have what you want they will make it up. Thick, rich, with real ice cream and all kinds of other fixings. Just delicious and the cost is under three dollars for a large cup. When we... More

Stopped by the Cook Out to grab a quick bite to eat when we arrived in Durham and the BBQ Pork Sandwich is awesome, it is topped with coleslaw and Texas Pete hot sauce and it's only $2.99. It is a great sandwich and I can't wait to go back for another one!
