Which of these has the better burger?
 
Checkers/Rallys
or...
Wendy's

Oh man.. having been to Atlanta, I gotta go with Checkers. So greasy, so awesome.

I've always disliked Wendy's, and after the comment about Checkers being greasy I'll go with Checkers.
 
Why does the east coast have so many exclusive burger places anyways? It's weird, bring some of them over to the ole west.  :P

Just had Wendy's today. It was a pretty good burger. Never had Checkers though. I don't think I've even heard of them.

being from chicago...five guys for upscalerish burgers, white castle for ghetto burgers.

The Rallys by me used to be good, but they've had a pretty sharp decline in burger quality over the past few years, I'm giving this to Wendys.

There hasn't been a Checkers around here for years. I forgot they even existed until right now.

It's called Rally's here in California, but I've never ate there and also never at Wendy's. There just aren't any Wendy's in my area...

Checkers/Rally's by a long shot.

Never been to Checkers but Wendys has awesome burgers

#13 Posted by KamasamaK (2409 posts) -

Checkers has the Chili Cheeseburger, so...
 
They also have much better fries.

#14 Posted by hai2u (322 posts) -

wendy's fries are like the worst out of all the fast food joints, gota go with checkrs.

#15 Posted by immike (714 posts) -

I don't like Wendy's, so probably Checkers/Rally's.

#16 Edited by trophyhunter (5800 posts) -

 Rallys is the best place ever 

#17 Posted by jNerd (2012 posts) -

Checker's is weak-sauce..... & so are you for FAILing to make this a poll.

#18 Posted by Atomasist (2818 posts) -

Wendy's is my favorite fast food joint...soooo Wendy's.

I've only been to Wendy's, or rather, that's the only one I've even heard of. Wendy's by default.
 
Also, you probably should have made this a poll.

its been so long since i've been to checkers they got rid of all of them in my area, but the wendy's is still here and they sure know how to make a burger

#24 Posted by ajamafalous (12007 posts) -

I've never heard of the other one, but goddamn Wendy's is terrible.

#25 Posted by AngelicRampage (110 posts) -

i like both Wendy's and Rally's
 
Wendy's because of their #3 order on the menu (i think its #3 pretty sure of it) which is a triple patty burger with a slice of cheese between each patty (note: order a triple burger without vegetables, its a WAY better experience, i also think if u order it that way, they put extra cheese)
 
Rally's though imo, is the best place to get fries, their seasoning and style is awesome (my favorite is curly fries from Rally's)

#26 Posted by TwoOneFive (9459 posts) -

checkers hits the fucking spot late at night. those fucking huge seasoned fries and their greasy burgers ugggggggghhhhhh and the chili dogs omg 
 
but they always get my orders wrong, especially in the drive through

Wendy's can be good if it's fresh but they are known for some of the worst health code violations. Checkers is a heavy grease bomb but the big buford will always reign supreme as the "hangover killer"

#28 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8061 posts) -

Rally's all the way.

#29 Posted by PartTimeNinja (344 posts) -

Wendy's pales in comparison to Checker's/Rally's.

#30 Posted by Meltac (2002 posts) -

Who?

#31 Posted by brooksee (234 posts) -
@Vigorousjammer:  Rally's, hands down. Their fries are amazing, too. But, I'll almost always choose Wendy's cheap ass dollar menu over an expensive Rally's meal.
#32 Posted by lockwoodx (2479 posts) -

This is a Big Buford from Checkers/Rally's  
 
 
 
Need I say more?

#33 Posted by belaraphon (453 posts) -

here in grand rapids we have both. right next to each other. its amazing.
 
but i like wendy's more.

#34 Posted by Vigorousjammer (2507 posts) -

yeah, I just noticed I didn't put my opinion in the initial post... but... totally checkers.
I fucking love the fries, especially the fully loaded fries.
i'll need a drink to wash down the heartattack feeling, but damn it is so damn good.

Philly Checkers are awful. Wendy's for me.

#36 Posted by PenguinDust (12532 posts) -

I live in the American South, too so the answer is Checkers all the way.  I stopped in just last week for a couple of jalapeno-cheddar burgers and some loaded fries.

#37 Posted by Godwind (2597 posts) -

Fuck both.  I'll go with Five Guys Burgers.
