      By Ben Swenson Williamsburg pulsed with activity. “The streets were thronged with artillery, supply trains and soldiers,” Val Giles wrote, “and the huckster was there crying his wares, for war had no terror for the Virginia huckster with his old poor horse and two-wheel cart.” Yet this stirring scene wasn’t happening in the 18th century, when American ...

Cook Out coming to Williamsburg

UPDATE : July 20/2013: The new Cook-Out Restaurant in Williamsburg officially opened on Saturday 7/20/2013 at 1660 Richmond Road, Williamsburg, VA 23188

North Carolina-based Cook Out will be making it’s debut in Newport News and Williamsburg VA.

UPDATE: The Newport News Cook Out restaurant opened for business yesterday, Oct 7, 2012.  It is located at 12471 Jefferson Avenue, Newport News, VA 23602. The site of the former “Castle Restaurant”

The Williamsburg  Planning Commission approved a site plan Wednesday for the new Cook Out restaurant at 1660 Richmond Rd., formerly the Casa Maya Restaurant.. A spring 2013 opening is planned at this time.

cookout in williamsburgFood lovers can anticipate a wide selection of low-priced cook-out fare, made from quality ingredients. The restaurant specializes in grilled hamburgers and hotdogs (cook-out style), chicken sandwiches, and North Carolina barbecue. Cook Out is also known for its variety of “Creamery Premium” milkshakes with choices like “Banana Pudding” and “Chocolate Cherry”.

The Cook Out combo is all about variety.  It comes with one main selection, and two, rather than just one, side dishes, plus a beverage for $4.25. There are several side dishes to choose from: fries, hush puppies, onion rings, chicken nuggets, a BLT sandwich, and more. In addition, Cook Out allows patrons to add toppings to create their perfect burger, instead of leaving them to modify already-built burgers. Cook Out is also known for its variety of 44 different milkshake flavors, made from natural ingredients.

Cook Out concentrates on its drive-thru business the Williamsburg store will also have tables inside.

In a move that undoubtedly brands Cook Out as a phenomenon of the Bible Belt, a variety of religious phrases are printed on Cook Out’s food packaging: “John 3:16″ and “God Bless America” are printed on the cups; “God Bless the USA” and “Galatians 6:10″ are printed on the French-fry bags; and “THANK YOU GOD FOR AMERICA” and “Psalms 119:165″ are printed on the full size bags.

Cook-Out was created by Morris Reaves. He is currently the owner of the company, with his son Jeremy Reaves serving as CEO.

On May 18, 2012, Cook Out celebrated the grand opening of its 100th store in Florence, SC.

At present, Cook Out has no known corporate website. A fan created website (http://eatcookout.com) provides menu and location information for some locations in the Raleigh-Durham, NC area. There are over 40,000 fans on the unofficial “CookOut” Facebook Group. The corporate “Satisfaction” phone number printed on drink cups is 1-866-547-0011.
