We make a point to get to Cook Out at least once while in Virginia visiting our daughter. The food is delicious, hot and the portions are large. Prices are very reasonable. Staff are friendly and quick.

The cookout is always a great go to for my wife and I when we have not had a chance to cook. The Cajun fries are absolutely delicious and not spicy at all. I usually get a tray with a chicken club sandwich and Arnold Palmer. All in all, good buy but eat right away.

For 5 dollars I was amazed at all the food we got. And it tasted so good. Family of 4 can eat for 20 dollars is amazing

Right across from the FOUNDERS INN on Indian River Rd is COOKOUT!!!! Jan made burgers, controlled with great sides is available here. BBQ too and to top it off a huge variety of ice cream shakes with real fruit. Drive through is available. I am hooked on them plus the offered toppings. Don't miss it except for the fried.😁😁😁

This place has the best prices for a full meal and over 40 milkshake flavors! Place is always packed and with drive thru only and a walk up it moves pretty fast!

We'd never heard of this food chain restaurant. Wish we had one by us! Large variety on menu. Very affordable. The bbq sandwich is awesome. Not like anything I've had before. Get with the coleslaw on it. Shakes good too!

Grabbed a quick bite to eat before going to our hotel for the night. Took advantage of the $4.99 special and ordered a chicken sandwich, fries, onion rings and cherry wine float. It was typical fast food, but in expensive and I order what I wanted from a large selection of choices. Service was OK. Restaurant was clean.

My husband was so excited when Cookout came to Virginia but we have went a handful of times since it opened locally and we have been disappointed every time. There is way to much hype about this place and they are popping up every where. I would rather go an authentic BBQ place than go here during the summer time.

What a happy find this place is. It is fast food so I did not know what to expect. What a pleasant surprise. A wide selection from burgers, to hot dogs, to bbq! Servings are in good portions and not greasy! Their large ice tea is HUGE, so be warned. The servers get a bit befuddled at times ( I... More

I went to cook out and the woman at the speaker said "go ahead" so they have terrible customer service. I got a spicy cheese bacon with tomato & lettuce. Mannn, when I got home I puked all over the bathroom. Never will I eat cookout again
