Drive thru national chain with excellent burgers and chicken sandwiches. Their fries are great and when you order them "Loaded" be prepared!

Pretty tasty burgers - and to me - a nice change from the usual suspects. The burgers had flavor - something I have been finding missing in the other two main burger chain burgers lately. This was a nice change for me - and the flavored fries were delicious!

Have had various Checkers burgers; they all are quite good. Love their fries which have a unique flavor. Like anything else, they are not inexpensive

Stopped in for a quick bite, as the kids were asleep in the truck. No grilled chicken sandwich - Strike One. Milkshake that tasted more like someone dumped a shoddy soft-served ice cream into a cup - Strike Two. Soggy lettuce on burger - Strike Three. Burger was - ok. But the size of it was disappointing, and something akin... More

Though outdoor seating is available, this is primary a drive-through establishment. Typical greasy hamburgers and fries.

Love their burgers and fries. Shakes are good too. Service is always fast and accurate and the prices are good for what you get.

Wyou have the crave for a good sloppy chilly cheese dog with onions, and you simply don't care about quality and simply desire that great taste (for football games and enjoying some beers), you can't go wrong enjoying a few of the Checker's favorites. :)

Their sandwiches and their fries are definitely superior to McDonald's, Burger King, and Wendy's. This is a true drive-thru restaurant - just a kiosk with two drive-thru lanes. But its service is excellent and I've always gotten exactly what I ordered.

Pink slime that's right pink slime is what the use in there burgers. Pink slime is left over pig parts all grounded up in to creamy slime and it taste the way it sounds. :-(

Your typical Checkers... Usually pretty fast with the order and usually the order is correct. Given your options for a quick burger - this is one of the better choices.
