I thought the same thing. Thank you. All three cities are in the same tier. Their all second tier cities.

Well that's not saying much. I love Checker's Spicy Chicken Sandwich. But you get tired of their burgers. You'd like their fries at first, but then you'd realize how greasy they are.

Is there a Checker's in Houston? I have this vague memory of seeing a Checker's maybe 15 or more years ago in Houston. I could be wrong.

I know there is one in Lake Charles, LA. I always go to that one when I'm in that city. The closest one to Houston is in Beaumont. Checkers needs to expand.

Ever been to Burger Street or Braums (this one especially). The grease came through the bag. Checkers wasn't ever that bad for me.

I think I went to Braums in Dallas. This is a bit off topic but I saw a place called Steak and Shake in Dallas. It almost made me sick just thinking about it, but then I went to Beck's Prime a few weeks ago here in Houston and I guess it's pretty much the same type of place (although I did not get a steak and shake there, I got a burger and shake)
