This must not be a chain, because I've never heard of it. Shortly after we first met, you did a post on a fast food place similar, but I can't remember if it was this one. I'm guessing they are like McDonalds, and wonder how they can compete. I guess they have their own specialities.

Oh I love the eerie glow of the Checkers shots!

Janice said...

I love the neon lights on the fast food place! I wish we had scenes like that around here!

We used to have Checkers and they closed. I love their retro look. I also love those strange things at Selby Gardens you posted yesterday. I was so busy showing them to my husband, I forgot to comment.

Best,
Bonnie

We used to have Checkers here in TN --but I think they are all gone now... None of the newer fast food places seem to make it up here. We have MacDonald's, Burger King, Hardee's (my fav), Wendy's, Arby's, Sonic, ---and I'm sure more...

Have a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Looks like the place to go to me! Great shots!

Is Checkers a chicken fast food place?? Your pics are so cool. They fit well with October and dark nights!

The only Checkers we have here is a parts store (as in automotive)..these are fabulous shots for a fast food joint!! Neat neon look~

We have Checkers here but it is a grocery story and a very popular one too with great prices.

The name means nothing to me but I like these glowing night photos, especially the first one.

Donna said...

Love This! Great night shot and neon lighting!!
Well Done!!

These are neat nighttime pictures of the fast food restaurant. I don't think I've ever been in a Checkers, but I do remember seeing them in daytime. They look pretty at night.

Great neon lighting, you captured it perfectly.

I'm not familiar with Checkers but then we now live in a small town. You asked if we had Sonic. Not here but I think they are in some of the larger cities here in WA. We do have one small drive-in called The Ice Berg but our A&W has become a drive-thru. I kind of miss living in a larger city sometimes (only sometimes).

Thanks for the shout!
