Went there during the World Cup to get a genuine german soccer experience when the german national team played. Had a great time. People are very friendly the food and the beer "boot" was great. Dont go there expecting hamburgers and american fare...it is a german restaurant after all...nice german beer selection and good food. Will definitely go there again

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

the best place in the area for authentic German food, recommended by our German neighbor. Bier samplers, great stuffed weinerschnitzel, combination platter with sausages and potato pancakes with applesauce, and finished off with apple strudel, and black forest cake. will definitely go again.

We have had good German food before, this is the Best German food we have ever had. We shared our plates of veal wiener schnitzel, red cabbage, Checkers scrambled eggs, spaetzel , potato dumpling. Filling and awesome!

Great atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff, excellent food! Hubby and I both braved the "boot" of beer and managed to finish them! I had a stuffed weiner schnitzel which was delicious. Hubby had a variety platter which he enjoyed too. German potato salad was delicious as was the spaetzle. Apple strudel rounded out a fantastic meal! Will definitely go... More

Very disappointed - food was terrible - I had the pork knuckle and it had clumps of fat that did not smell good. The service we received was also terrible. I have never had such a rude waitress (Natalie) - as soon as we received our drinks she asked what we wanted to eat without hardly giving us time to... More

A visit to Checkers Old Munchen restaurant is like a trip to Germany -- right down to the imported beer and das boot they serve it in. German specialties and desserts are made in-house with pride and served with a smile. Favorites include a brat and knackwurst platter with sauerkraut, potato pancakes, spaetzel, wienerschnitzel, sauerbraten, topped off by classics like... More
