Re: COOK OUT (fast food chain)
Jim, I think you are going to be disappointed. The combo price is now $5.25 for 2018 (at least in Virginia). Everything seems to be fresh - not frozen, including the beef and french fries. The burgers are char-grilled.
The problem is the fat content in the meat they use. It must be well above what McDonald's uses in their Quarter
Pounder. Just like JRPfeff, I found the 1/4 lb burger tiny, much tinier than the McDonald's product. It is not greasy the way they cremate it. The fat goes in the dip tray and the burger does not fill you up.
Their price seems have gone up rather sharply in the last few years. They may need to put out a combo in the $7 range with enough burger meat so you don't get hungry right away.
