Hide Menu Item in Layout

I have an MVC C# Web application. I need a way to check a cookie name ="User_Role", if it = "UR500" then hide a menu object which is included in the layout.cshtml. Where would I place this script?

I don't recommend to use JS for this, this is not secure.
You should use PHP or server side code to check the role and display / hide the menu item like you would do in your page for the content.
if user_role = something show else hide ....

is your syntax correct? I'm getting an token error with poor format.
Could you please take a screenshot and show us the error message?
Great work.
Glad I could help.
