COOKS is the quintessence of burger joints. Not just for the Comox Valley, or Vancouver Island, or BC, or Canada but for all burger joints in the world. What they have to offer is the extremely scarce experience of extraordinarily delicious, yet straightforward options. It is a lost art to have a menu where every item can hold its own, while balancing simplicity and distinct character. COOKS lets their menu speak for itself. The priority to serve you a top-of-the-line meal is apparent, and their knowledge of the mighty burgers history is evident. They know very well that it must be paired with a cold-beer or a premium milkshake and fries with a personality. Sadly, I have to drive an hour to visit them so I have yet to ever pair a brew with my burger on their perfect pretty patio. Would I love it if they franchised and started World Burger Domination? Mayhap. But I assume what makes them special is their team and leadership, so unless they receive access to state-of-the art cloning technology, I will find solace in their one and only Cumberland location. tl;dr: Go to COOKS. Eat anything. Leave full and happy. Look at their funny social media accounts. Get sad and hungry cause you're not at COOKS. Repeat. (Thank you COOKS. Your restaurant and marketing bring me joy. I hope you and your team thrive forever or for however long you want.)
The hamburgers were terrific but the fries were dry and overcooked. I called to let them know, and they thanked me, but no offer to replace them. It's too bad because I won't be going to Cook's again.
Great spot! Casual, the staff were very helpful. They carry a great selection of craft beer. Cute merch also, ended up grabbing the pickle shirt!
We were in town for the day to bike and ended with COOKS. This is hands down the best food I’ve ever eaten at any restaurant in my life! We got the spicy chicken sandwich and the fried chicken sandwich with messy fries and both sandwiches were amazing - the spice level was perfect, the chicken was so tender and crispy, and the pickles, bacon, and shredded lettuce made the sandwiches the best they could be. Service was excellent, the staff was super nice, and the food was sincerely so delicious. We mentioned it when we were there but to reiterate, Squamish could use a place like this. More than five stars!!
Such a great little place! The food was delicious & beer on tap was nice and refreshing addition on a hot summer day. 5 stars for the customer service . The younger lady who helped us was so darn friendly but not in the fake customer service way , just a truly nice person. Keep up the great work. I will definitely make a point to stop in again when I am back out that way!
