Every time I dine there it is consistently good and the food always arrives hot. An added bonus on Restaurant.com you can purchase a coupon and look for one on the other coupon sites.The service is always good.

I wanted a special treat my last night in Pompano and visited Checkers. Checkers is not that large of a restaurant and I would recommend reservations . I arrived early about 4:30 and was promptly seated and waited on . My waitress asked if I would like a drink and took the time to explain the many choices that I... More

The service in this restaurant made it impossible to give this place a better rating. We had reservations but upon our arrival a staff member barked: "Wait Outside!", with no explanation. No one even came outside to get our names. A table was ready over a half hour after our reserved time. No explanation of delay was offered. Upon being... More

We went to Checker's Old Munchen yesterday and had a wonderful experience. Wait staff was pleasant, prompt, and efficient. We tried 3 different dinners and enjoyed each one. Meal comes with 2 sides and they really enhanced the entrée. Great value if you check out their deals and coupons. We weren't aware of these offers but will take advantage of... More

Four of us were on vacation and ate there for dinner. The food was excellent and I we really enjoyed it. I know this sounds crazy -- but the red cabbage was so good that I was wishing there was a place we could get it on the west coast of FL. We even ordered a couple of desserts, which... More

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.

My wife and I visited Old Munchen for dinner on Labor Day weekend. It was our first time there and we loved it from the onset. 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.
