WASHINGTON — “The thing about Cook Out is they give you two sides instead of one. That’s what sets them apart.”
Oh, well that clears that up. Thanks for the info, Kirk Cousins.
Cousins, while mic’d up at training camp by CSN Mid-Atlantic, explained what he considers so great about the restaurant chain, while simultaneously lamenting the rarity of Cook Outs in the D.C. area.
“You been to Cook Out at all yet? It’s pretty good, right? The thing about Cook Out is they give you two sides instead of one. That’s what sets them apart. Fredericksburg is as far north as they go, though. So the goal is, we gotta pool our finances and open one in Ashburn, and then we can have all the Cook Out we want, whenever we want. I think we could make bank off the equipment room alone. Yeah I had my first Cook Out experience road-tripping back to D.C. after the season. Down to Atlanta, we stopped off in one of the Carolinas.”
With the Redskins holding training camp in Richmond, Cousins has had plenty of time to enjoy the delicacies of Cook Out. The chain’s website lists three locations in Richmond, and there’s another in nearby Mechanicsville, so the Redskins quarterback has his choice of locations.
Fredericksburg is as far north as the chain goes on Interstate 95, but there are several locations elsewhere in the north, including one in Salisbury, Md., and two in West Virginia.
No word yet on if Cook Out has overtaken Shake Shack on Cousins’ go-to list of eateries.
