This is a good, quick burger joint that has is dependable and fast. I've never had a bad meal here and especially enjoy their trays where you get two sides. I usually get a double order of fries but I also like to mix it up and get the burger, fries, and chicken nuggets occasionally-lol. I especially like their "Cook-Out... More

Cookout used to be a really good burger/shake place. Used to be is the key phrase. Other locations are not as bad--but the Kernersville location is horrible. The food is ok--it is often made very sloppily and with little care--but ok. The worst part are the horrible attitudes and NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. My last experience--and final straw: about 11:00 at...

Was hungry, so I stopped by Cook Out in Kernersville, NC. Got the value meal with all kinds of choices on the menu. Plenty of tasty food to fill you up... Hamburger , chicken, onion rings, with a drink for $4.99. Can't beat it!

This is a local fast food chain. The menu is about what you would expect. The burgers and hot dogs are good. The best feature is the wide variety of milkshakes - if you can think of it, it is probably on the menu. There is quite a bit of indoor seating and a few patio tables. The service is... More

This is much more of a fast food chain than a bbq joint. The food was average, slightly better than McDonalds. I didn't want Cole slaw on my sandwich, it came with Cole slaw. Can't say I'd go back.

This was my first time to CookOut and it was a pleasant surprise. I ordered a "Huge Burger" (aka 1/2 lb.) with lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, and mayo and an order of fries. It was ready in about two minutes freshly cooked to the way I ordered it. It was delicious and filling. The fries appeared to be of the... More

As usual for cookhout, the food was fast, filling, and tasty. And this one has indoor seating! Easy to find from I-40 business Kernersville.

Cookout is one of the best places in Kernersville to eat. Servers are friendly and fast. One of the few Cookouts where you can dine in. Love the barbecue!

Stopped for a burger. Quick friendly service. Nothing great about the burger. We would return for a quick bite when we are in a hurry. Better than BK and M

The burger should be larger than the bun, not vice versa. I really want to like this place but they are making it increasingly difficult. I always get two orders of fries because the "less than ample size burger" is not filling. The hockey puck burgers have to go. I started coming to Cookout years ago when their milkshakes had...
