We tried Checker's Old Munchen the other night and were very impressed. The Wienerschnitzel was unbelievable, and the knockwurst & bratwurst were packed with flavor. We also tried the potato pancake, and for dessert we had the apple strudel. It is a small restaurant, and the atmosphere is great. The staff were very attentive and service was fantastic. If you...

We went to this restaurant two days in a row. We have been to Germany and this wiener schnitzel is so much better. You can cut it with a fork. The staff is really friendly and the owner is the best. Make a reservation, it is a small intermit place. Cannot say enough about the veal.

Small quaint restaurant with a bar and wonderful German beers on tap and friendly staff. The food was delicious and reasonably priced as well. Will definitely be going back to this restaurant in the... More

Firstly, I have been to a lot of restaurants, and this one needs a lot of updating. You could be tipically german but that doesn't mean you have to be outdated. Predominantly senior citizens crowd, waitress excessively loud when greeting and stating the special of the day, in other words not a german vibe, certainly. If it wasn't that we... More

Checkers old muncher User webbpage was “woefully disappointed” by Checkers old muncher. “We were really looking forward to our dinner – expectations were high but realistic. Without trying to sound arrogant, we are familar [sic] with top end restaurants and not unfairly measuring our experience against unequally rated restaurants. What a disappointment. Upon arrival, we were seated promptly in the... More

My family was on vacation and found this place on TA and gave it a try. We were greeted by friendly staff as soon as we walked in. Restaurant is not very big maybe 15 tables and a nice bar feels like a nice family run place. I ordered a dark German beer, the waitress asked if I wanted a... More

Recently after moving to the area, joined the bar for a quick bite to eat. Mostly a German atmosphere with Latin waitstaff, I ate a great Wiener Schnitzel with a good German beer. However a week alter when I checked my Credit Card Statement, I found out that there was some $$$ extra added to the tip. When I challenged... More
