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.

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

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

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

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)

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"

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

@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.

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.

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.

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