Cooke's in Orleans

applehome | Jul 5, 2004 12:27 AM

Spent the weekend at the cape - mostly ok meals, not worth writing about - but stopped at one "clam box" that was one of the best I've been to. Cooke's in Orleans is at the junction of 6A and 28. It's more than a clam box or shack - they have a large comfortable indoor area and outdoor patio dining. Ordering is at the counter, but they bring you your tray. Service and cleanliness is outstanding - lots of young summer help, eager to please. The fried clams were very good - light coating, let the clams shine with just a little lemon, no sand. Fried onion rings were excellent - crispy and not greasy. Obviously, they know how to deep fat fry, and they keep their oil clean and fresh. The burgers were cooked to order (a very juicy medium rare). Lobster roll was typical mayonnaise type on a NE style hot dog roll - stuffed to overflowing. The iced tea was brewed, (not instant) and they gave free refills. Foodwise, definitely the high spot of the weekend.
