It appears the new Cook Out will be the first in Gwinnett County — and a TACO BELL will be built alongside it.
So, all that sounds pretty good...what's the bad news? The construction (and opening) schedule is a mystery!
The old building has already come down (obviously), and the new restaurant has already been listed as "coming soon" on the Cook Out website, but restaurant officials are playing a possible opening date close to the vest.
As in, they're not releasing one at all. Even a vague one. Believe me. I tried.
Disappointing, I know... but I guess you can always revel in the mere fact that deliciousness is on the horizon. And that a Cracker Barrel, a Zaxby's, a Freddy's and a Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q are, too.
And if that doesn't whet your appetite enough, check out The AJC's brand spanking new Gwinnett dining guide — where, among other things, you can check out a list of 19 restaurants you have to try, a round-up of cheap ethnic eats and a heat map showing restaurants that have recently opened or are opening soon.
Cook Out is not included on the latter, but I promise you, Amber — it's coming. IT'S COMING!
