Checkers & Rally's restaurants were born out of the idea that a bland and flavorless burger was downright bad and that Americans everywhere deserved a better tasting burger 4 one that was unexpectedly bold, made-to-order and priced at a value that was hard to beat. Founded by experienced foodies with a renegade spirit, both the Checkers & Rally's unique double drive-thru concept, with its over-the-top checkerboard squares, chrome styling, red neon signs and of course the food, was an instant hit. These two new burger experiences were hot, fresh and served with a smile. People were hooked, and the world of cookie cutter corporate burger establishments was about to change. After successfully opening and maintaining 200+ restaurant chain businesses in several Midwestern and Southeastern states, in 1999 Checkers & Rally's would bring their passion for big flavor together. This successful merger would make Checkers & Rally's the largest double drive thru restaurant chain in the country. Which in turn would only help bolster both the Checkers & Rally's brands on all fronts. Today Checkers & Rally's have more than 800 restaurants open in the United States. And with the hard working, can-do attitude that every Checkers & Rally's employee and franchisee brings to work with them every day, we're only certain to grow even more.
Went there last night with some friends, being an Italian cook myself, I'm very fussy about eating that fare out. So here's my take:
The prices were very good, wine selection was nice, service outstanding. Food was VERY good. The owner was most friendly and charming. Would I go back? Yes, absolutley.
I'm not a fan, but if someone asks where to meet for lunch...this sometimes comes out of my mouth. Why? Well, it's not bad, it's not great...it's food. I usually have a salad and this time I asked for the Cobb, no egg and light on the Gorgonzola cheese...my cheese was so light it was non-existent...and the hard boiled egg was right there...OK...I sent it back and the egg was removed...cheese still non-existent. I ordered a glass of the Mark West Pinot Noir; one taste and I knew it was off..weak on the palette with a sour/tart finish...so I asked the server how long the bottle had been opened...she didn't know but promptly brought me a new glass of freshly opened wine...ah, viva la difference...I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I don't expect perfection...I expect responsiveness...and that they delivered...no push back at all.
LindySez - if the weather is nice, score a seat outside. It's not a bad place to kick back and enjoy 4th Street
Checkers is my new comfort food place. Everything on the menu is excellent. Their iced tea, foccia bread, and I especially love their salads. Service is quick if you beat the rush but the restaurant can be loud at peak times. Take-out service is excellent as well. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.
I was greeted and seated as soon as I entered. Within moments I was asked for my order. Bread and drink was served quickly. Salad came next. The owner stopped by my table for a moment then lunch came. The calzone I ordered was delicious. Was big enough to take home for lunch the next day.
