COOK OUT (fast food chain)

They haven't reached Dallas yet, but ... -
As we already have In-N-Out, Five Guys and Shake Shack -
it's only a matter of time.
 
So, what's it like (or)?

    It always looked fantastic and we were always disappointed. Overcooked hard little burgers with toppings that were short on flavor.

    The minced pork BBQ and hush puppies caught my eye.

    You'll be making a mistake to pass up Five Guys (even a franchise) for this stuff.

    Don't think it could ever replace 5 Guys for me...but it does have alternate foods...like hushpuppies,hard to find in the Northeast, unless you can find an Arthur Treachers.

    But what if I have only $5 in my pocket?
     
    Presently, at Five Guys a "small burger" (single patty), "little fries", and a Coke runs $11.50 + tax
     
    As an enthusiastic customer of theirs since their founding in 1986 all I can say is that I'm glad that I can still afford them on occasion!

    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.

    I like Cook Out.  We have them all over the South, the best thing there is the Milkshakes and all the flavors they offer.
     
    The peanut butter milkshake is my favorite.

    They haven't made it to Tallahassee FL yet - but their latest one near me is around an hour away. Yes their burgers are small and overcooked - but compared to similar around here Cook Out would be a place I would visit frequently. The flavor of their burgers reminds me of the old Hardee's Big Twin cooked on their air grills. To me - that was a dang good burger.
