Moment of Silence please!
Cookout, the Carolina Fast Food chain has made it’s way up to Virginia. This excites me to NO end. When I was in college, every time I visited my friends at Wake Forest, I would HAVE to stop at Cookout and get myself a tray and a milkshake. You know a Fast Food place is amazing when CHICKEN NUGGETS are considered a “side” item. AMERICA!!!! You could also get a side of hushpuppies which was a fast food first for me. Don’t even get me started on the milkshakes. They have every flavor under the sun and if they don’t have it you can make your own.
When I was visiting Matt’s family over the holidays, I saw one of these in Richmond and nearly freaked out. When Matt was working at VT at the beginning of the year, he said that Cookout had infiltrated Blacksburg.
I’m hoping the chain will slowly trickle up to the DMV area soon because that would be AMAZING.
