Editorial Review of Checkers

There's no place to sit down inside and half its business is drive through, so don't expect much in the way of amenities. The only reason anyone goes here is that it is good, cheap food...some of the best fast food burgers and fries anywhere at a tremendous value (a fiver will get you a giant burger, fries and a Coke).

A friend of mine was in town from New York and we passed by here after a long night of drinking. After eating his burger, he was moved to ecstasy. He said it the best burger he had ever had. "Maybe the best in the world." Now, a drunk New Yorker may not be the most reliable restaurant critic in the world, but it is awfully good munchie food.

Average cost: <$10
