You're downtown, it's hot and you're just looking for a quick bite for lunch. In and out, be on your way and maybe get an errand or two done before getting back to work. As my title indicates, if you're in a hurry, this is probably not the place.
This isn't an indictment on the food. I like Checkers, and I like Sonic and we have neither up north here. Be that as it may, I've strolled into this Checkers location as a friend works nearby and we sometimes meet up for lunch. Well, there's waiting and then there's WAITING. What's nice about places like Checkers and Sonic is the variety in the menu that you won't see at a McDonald's or Burger King.
So, if you're just dying for a burger and a quick in and out burger(not the west coast variety) you may want to skip this place and hunt for another lunch destination. It's only a short walk to Main Street where's there is an Applebee's and restaurants aplenty the further down Main Street you travel. Of course, parking is at a premium most of the time downtown so there you have it.
Your best bet may be just take a lunch from home. You're saving money and in the dead of summer who wants to get all hot and sticky looking for lunch. Have lunch in air conditioned comfort at work and save money. Splurge on Friday...
