The North Carolina-based chain is opening a 3,200-square-foot fast-food restaurant at 4088 Jimmie Dyess Parkway, just off Interstate 20 and in a former KFC building that is currently being remodeled, said Joel Christman, whose company, Dodson & Chatman Construction, is supervising the project.

The restaurant, which serves char-grilled hamburgers, chicken, hotdogs and dozens of milkshakes, will include both indoor and outdoor seating in addition to a single drive-through window, Christman said.

The first Cook-Out location in metro Augusta opened this summer on Walton Way at Crawford Avenue.

The chain has more than 128 locations across the Carolinas, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia.

Wish the one on Walton Way

Wish the one on Walton Way had indoor seating. What were they thinking?!

No indoor seating

Every time I have passed Cook-Out since they opened the line has been no less that 25 people and at times as many as 100+ people in line. Last week it was raining and slightly cool as I passed (during lunchtime) and of course there was NOBODY in line.
I do not understand the no indoor seating, no one wants to stand outside in the rain or cold winter months. This can not make good business sense.

Perfect Business Sense

I bet the one on Walton Way without seating makes perfect business sense.

Standing outside
Unpublished

Augustans stood outside in all types of weather back when what-a-burger
was on Broad St. If the food is good, people will put up with the lines and weather.

Do you want good or cheap?

With the line outside the one on Walton Way, you would think it was the next What-a-Burger. In my opinion, the hamburgers were just like Checker's or Rally's. Do you want good or do you want cheap? If you want both, go to the old What-a-Burger which is now Old Time Burgers just up Walton Way in the little shopping center next to Richmond Academy. It's good, fairly cheap, they ALWAYS get it right, and you can sit down and eat!

What-a-Burger

Truly an Augusta tradition! Seems that there were three locations through the years that had some version of the 'What-A-Burger." Upper Broad Street, Olive and Milledgeville Rds and Hephzibah. No matter what version all three of these locations had a great burger which were always a treat to eat!

Bet seenit knows what I am talking about. Oh, where is countyman? He should congratulate CC for their acquisition. :)

Three Places In Last Year On That Corner

I just drove past the site of the new Cook-Out in Columbia County and saw the renovation in progress. On that corner there is also a new McDonalds with the Shake and Steak right across from them. That's three places in the last year on that corner.
