People have been telling me for years to go to Cookout. Now I'm telling you: Go to Cookout!! Simply great burgers. INCREDIBLE shakes (requires a spoon). I'm sure the rest of the menu is stellar as well. Can't wait to return to the south and visit Cookout again.

Visited while in town for ASU-Miami game. First night driving by looked empty so was nervous to try! Tried someone else, didn't like their burger so decided to try these guys and sure glad I did!

If you are looking for something quick and cheap, a setp above conventional fast food chains such as McDonald's and Wendy's then this is your place. Food was ok, not spectacular like fast casual but cannot beat the price. Perfect for those late night munchies, while studying for finals!

How can you beat a $5 tray?? Double burger of fresh ground beef, delivered each day, char-grilled and two sides and large tea. You don't get quality like that in a fast food joint.

Had drive thru late night milk shake, burgers, corndogs, fries, and slaw! Perfect late night food. The burgers taste just like outdoor grilled burgers.
