I’ve driven by Cook-Out place many times and it’s always packed. Every time. The parking lot is a zoo and the managers step out from the greasy kitchen to direct traffic to hungry patrons.
We didn’t have a Cook-Out in Houston (or Texas for that matter). But here in Richmond, there is one. I know it is a local chain. So I did my research. From Wikipedia:
Cook Out is a fast food privately owned restaurant chain in North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Richmond, Virginia. Founded in Greensboro, the chain has since expanded throughout the state and now has drive-thru restaurants in over twenty cities. Most locations consist of a double drive-thru and outdoor seating
This place is great. I met up with some people tonight to grab a shake and talk. I ordered a strawberry milkshake and fries. I couldn’t go wrong.
The milkshake was one of the best I have ever had. It was creamy and had real strawberry chunks in it. The fries were perfect, I ordered them with Cajun seasoning (per request).
Short and simple, it was the bomb.com … is that phrase still lame?
Check this place out, I hope most Richmonders have (especially during those post-drinking moments) but for those who haven’t … go!
