As of August 1999, both Checkers and Rally’s restaurants merged. Checkers and Rally’s, originally separate companies, serve different areas, with Checkers serving the Southeast and Rally’s serving the Midwest.

Checkers drive-in restaurants first started  in 1986 in Mobile, Alabama. A year earlier, Rally’s Drive-In opened its first restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky. In 1999, the two fast food restaurants merged into a single double drive-thru burger chain.

Checkers and Rally’s serve foods such as hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, fish, hot wings, french fries, shakes, and soft drinks. The restaurant even offers dessert such as milkshakes, ice cream, and apple pies. People truly appreciate the restaurant for its variety of food and drink choices.

To expand their business, restaurant management came up with a character called “Mr. Bag”. Mr. Bag appeared on television commercials and informed viewers about not only the the types of food that they served, but also about the low prices for their meals.

Over the years, the fast food restaurant gained more popularity which motivated upper management to expand the business, opening more Checkers and Rally’s in 28 different states.

People love Checkers and Rally’s mostly for its quick, drive-up service. Moreover, they truly enjoy its famous fries and several of their scrumptious desserts.

The restaurants’ design appears refreshing and nostalgic of classic hamburger spots, manifesting an inviting atmosphere. People love visiting Checkers and Rally’s with their family for burgers and fun.

This restaurant only offers outdoor dining, but many visitors enjoy the fast food/drive thru experience. Checkers and Rallys’ food prices also represent a bargain which customers find appealing. “My order was correct, fresh and hot, my soda wasn’t passed to me with sticky soft drink running down the sides!”, a customer stated.

Checkers and Rally’s: the best merged restaurant!
