I used to love cookout milkshakes, but now it's like every time I go there, the milkshakes get worse and worse. I like to get mixed milkshakes as in it has 2 different items, and several times there were hardly any of the toppings in them. like literally it was just vanilla ice cream... if i wanted vanilla ice cream...

Cook out has surprisingly decent fast foods, burger, hot dogs and even bbq sammiches. However, the thing they are know for is their shakes! Best in town. Better be prepared to use a spoon on that shake because they are thick!

I love every Cook Out's food, but this one is hands down the fastest of any fast food restaurant. They are consistently sending orders out the windows extremely fast. Any cook out tray is a must order, you get tons of food for cheap.

Cook Out is consistent in giving out delicious burgers and shakes. If you want a quick meal in Thomasville, Cook Out is an amazing option right off I-85.

Grilled chicken sandwich is great. Milkshakes are wonderful. Very fast drive through only. What more could you ask for? By the way the Cookout Tray is the best value anywhere...

This is the best place to eat when you're feeding a crowd -- the grilled chicken sandwich is wonderful. Milk shakes are great. The combo options are great and a great value. There are enough sides (chicken nuggets, fries, etc) to share with smaller kids without ordering another meal. Their jumbo sweet tea is the BEST! Geez, I'm craving one... More

Cookout is so much more than you would expect. There is a boy who works here named Adam and he is the sweetest thing, love to see him at the window. Will definitely be back!

It's a little high price wise but wonderful food. Their burgers are to die for. I like the quick service and hot food. Don't care too much for the prices. Can't go there much at all on a small budget.

We got the food to go. The sides (fries and onion rings) were really good and the shakes were super thick and delicious. The burgers...not so much. Came wrapped in foil but unlabeled so we had to open each burger and try to ascertain whose burger was whose. And the burgers were over cooked and buns were smooshed. The concept... More
