The food was good but The girl behind the counter taking my order was extremely unfriendly! I don't know the menu and she acted annoyed that I was fumbling with it.

My first visit to a Cook Out (none in my area). I was in a hurry and just ordered a burger - a few minutes later, looked at the menu board and realized I should have made some other choices - just for variety. The burger was good, equal to my Five Guys the previous day in another city and... More

The burgers were prepared so quickly we did not even have a chance to get a table. That is a good thing. One of the ice machines had no ice, and at least two fountain drinks needed changed but even so it was still worth the 30 minute drive. Generous cheese fries, tasty burgers and shakes. For the price, I... More

We stopped to grab a nite while travelling to PA. It is located beside a Wendy's so half of us went to Wendy's and half to Cook Out to see who was faster. Cook Out won hands down!

Good bar bq, quick drive thru, at at a good price. It didn't taste like most fast food places. Convenient for taking food back with you to your home or hotel.

Food, price and service were great but place was very grimy. Table was clean but bathroom doors were sticky and cleaning agent build up along wall corners. Opening the door was overwhelmed with bad bleach smelled mixed with rotten meat. Wife wanted to eat here so we stayed. I would not have eaten there. If I were to eat there... More

Good fast food. They have your actual grilled burgers and chicken sandwiches. If we had one near us in PA we would be there all the time. The milkshakes are an added bonus that are AWESOME!!!! They are even so reasonably priced!!!!!!!!

We were pleased to see a Cook Out when we arrived in Harrisonburg. When we lived in GA, we enjoyed dining at Cook Out. We were not disappointed. The burgers were as delicious and juicy as we remembered. This is a favorite establishment for comfort food.

If you need a inexpensive place for a quick meal this is it. Sandwich meals for 4.99 and very good milk shakes. Service was good and the restaurant was clean.
