Voting unanimously to recommend that the Kill Devil Hills Board of Commissioners approve the site plan, the town’s Planning Board on Nov. 17 gave the go-ahead for the construction of a Cook Out restaurant on S. Croatan Highway at milepost 9.5, just south of Ocean Atlantic Rentals and across the bypass from the Harris Teeter Grocery store.
The restaurant — part of a popular chain of restaurants in the south that features burgers, barbeque, hot dogs and milkshakes — is slated to cover 1,500 square feet, feature two drive-through lanes, 18 parking spaces and a bike rack. The Kill Devil Hills commissioners are expected to consider the site plan at their December meeting.
The restaurant will not have any indoor seating. While some Cook Outs have indoor seating, many locations only offer drive-through service and patio seating.
