We stopped here for the first time and ordered several different items. Everything was good. The niehborhood looks a little shady. But the food was good.

As always great food at a great price. Staff lovely and very polite. Checkers is always a family favourite with us. We especially love the fries.

We thought this food would not be good because of prices. We were wrong. We tried it and go back quite often for a quick, inexpensive and delicious treat.
