Checkers Restaurant Review

: The casual atmosphere at this kid-friendly neighborhood restaurant belies the better-than-average, Mediterranean-inspired fare it offers: pizzas, pastas, calzones and salads, all crafted with fresh ingredients. Appetizers include hot artichoke dip with crostini and pizza bites served with pesto and tomato sauces. Pizza is what Checkers is known for --- thin crust and traditional toppings as well as a Thai-inspired pie with marinated chicken and cilantro. Pasta dishes are varied offering garlic shrimp on angel hair and chicken pasta with a spicy-sweet Asian sauce. A small selection of local wines complements the menu. Service is fast and charming.
