In the town of Easley I found Pete's Number 6. This place was extremely popular. I have no idea if there is a Number one through 5. The drive-in awnings are still intact, though no car hops. 03-08

Cook Out
Charlotte, , NC

Here are pictures of a place called Cook Out. This particular one was off I-85 at the north border of Charlotte (Across from Bubba's to be exact). Pretty much a local chain as far as I can tell. They are not super common but you do see them from time to time. All I saw were carry out only except for the one in Salisbury, The place was good, burgs and chicken on a grill. I can tell you this, big or small the south knows how to make a good burger. 07-08
