This place is a landmark. You need to try one of their monthly beer tastings. Have been dining there for 7 years and never have been disappointed. The entrees, sides, and sauces are all on the Mark.

I have to admit, I've eaten a lot of different cuisines around the world but I had never really tried German food until I came here...

We love going to this place to eat and my husband is working on his stein (beer mug) so it's always fun to participate in that. The food is authentic German food and is cooked perfectly.

I enjoyed my meal, my beer and the over ambiance of Checkers Old Munchen. While it was not the best German food I have had, it was serviceable considering I don't eat it everyday. The place is very small and can get very crowded. The service was good and timely and if you can manage to get a Groupon it... More

The only problem was that there was too much fat on it. It fed two people easily. Prices are good. We might come and try it... More

Come here hungry because you are going to get a lot of food and it is good food. The pretzels they start you off with are just a great beginning, then the kombo plate and then whatever it is you order. So good.

The food, the staff, the patrons, the atmosphere; you would think you were somewhere in Germany. Have been eating there for years and will continue to do so. What a fantastic place. An absolute must eat at restaurant if you like German food.

The schnitzel was so tasty! They have a vast selection of authentic meals. The prices are fair and the restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere. I will go back here again. It's a gem that I'm happy I found. I highly recommend going here for lunch or dinner!
