This is a regional chain, I think. Wide selection of shakes, which I've never had. Food is over-cooked, I think, and that is after several meals there.

The place was close to our hotel so we walked to it and got some food. My friend had the BBQ plate and I had a burger and onion rings. Food was quick and hot and was good. Will visit again.

The food is wonderful and you can't beat the prices. This is a go to place before events with the family, as you can get a meal, a milkshake and walk away without breaking your budget.

Hamburger restaurant a step above the usual burger joint. 40 flavors of milk shakes and okay burgers. The kids loved it. The shakes were very good. We went back two more times just for the shakes. The burgers are average.

Got chicken sandwiches and shakes. Quality of our chicken was terrible - grizzly and tough. The shakes are basically cups of frozen custard. I think they're thicker than Wendy's frosty. You can't drink them with a straw. Not a good thing.

If you want to take the kids out and you are on a budget, Cookout is the place to go. Get a Burger, fries and shake combo, it will fill up the troops and it's pretty good fast food. They have burgers and hotdogs and...More
