They have a varied menu, lots of options. Hot dogs are NOT boiled, thank you, but griled and very good. The chicken strips are great as is the strips sandwich. GREAT fries, thick and tasty. not thin hard sticks. Service is pretty fast, and prices are reasonable. I love that you get 2 sides with a combo! Great fries and a surprisingly good corndog (or a quesadilla) with a strips sandwich and a drink for $5! Swap the drink for a shake for $1 more. The shakes are very thick and rich but lack flavor; I have tried 3 flavors (peach blueberry, cheesecake) and all were weak. If you are gonna bother to do a real shake, make it tasty as well as rich! Ordering can be tricky, especialy in the drive through. They have gotten my order wrong 4 out of 5 times in the drive thru. Next visit I went in, and told the manager. He offered to comp my meal but I forgot and ended up paying. Make sure you understand the ordering process and what's included, and go inside to order and you should be pleased.
I am not one to usually write a bad review but after tonight, I hope that someone from CookOut Anderson reads this...Whoever takes the orders at the drive thru needs to pay attention to customer requests. I for one am allergic to tomatoes and peppers and my body reacts unfavorabley to them. I specifically order my sandwiches with NO TOMOATOES. Half the time, they get my order correct and have to take out the tomato... Tonight, they COMPLETELY messed up my order when a Chicken Club was ordered instead, I was given a CAJUN chicken. Hopefully for the company, I wil not react to severely to the Cajun sauce they put in the sandwich due to an INATTENTIVE employee....or maybe what they (CookOut) need is for someone to have a serious reaction to a food item that is put on there when they are told not! Maybe that will open their eyes!
We tried Cook Out for the first time today, and it was a good first experience. I like that all of the hamburger patties don't look identical in every burger, its like they are all handmade. The milkshake after dinner was the best part. I didn't like that as soon as you order one item they call it to the back to be made so there is really no changing your mind. We could have gotten a better price if the cashier would have told us of available combos before hand, but overall it was good food and we will go back.
