“Food OK but TERRIBLE service”

Written on: 31/10/2012

I decided to visit this diner with some friends as we were in the area. To cut a long story short overall its nice - decoration, food, pricing are all OK. (Although do not expect food quality or portion size of a REAL american diner). The thing that ruined it for us was the quality of service. It was half full when we were there so not jam packed busy. There were two ladies waitressing and they were awful. Very abrupt and none of them acknowledged us even though we stood for a good five… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/09/2012 by Clare462 (1 review written)

This really is the best fry up i have ever eaten!!! I am a childminder and take alot of children with me to checkers. The staff cant do enough for me and the children.

Me and my husband often cone here on a Sunday aswell to relax. Plus we come here before and afer a holiday as we know we wont get another fry up like we do… Read Full Review

“Great venue, good food, shame about the REALLY BAD SERVICE”

Written on: 22/08/2012

There were only 3 other tables dining whists we were there, yet one of the two waitresses completely, and very rudely ignored us on several occasions. The other waitress was actually quite sweet, but was clearly running around trying to do the work of both waitresses, as the rude waitress only seemed to want to work the til. The food was fine, apart from the fact that half of our meals arrived 5 minutes after the first half, the eggs were very snotty on top, and we had ordered toast but it… Read Full Review

“American Diner/Transport Cafe”

Written on: 26/04/2012 by nigel withyman (3 reviews written)

This is a real find tucked away as it is in the middle of an industrial estate but it's worth the time spent seeking it out! It is located on the ground floor of and integral with an office block (Amaryllis House, Montrose Road, Chelmsford, CM2 6TE) in what appears to be its own fenced in plot of land with its own car park. Upon opening the door one is confronted with a pleasant atmosphere, an approximation of an American Diner with tables and chairs set out in that style along the length of… Read Full Review

“Reading all the other reviews I decided to visit...”

Written on: 02/03/2011 by MattHicks (1 review written)

Reading all the other reviews I decided to visit Checkers Diner to see what it was like. When I arrived I was greeted nicely and sat down with a drinks order at the ready. I ordered a 10 Piece English breakfast which cost £6.50 I think. The food arrived quickly and I was very satisfied at the time of which it came. I liked the fact that you could see the staff working in the kitchen as the preparation area was on show, so you could see everything being made. The staff were very friendly and… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/02/2011

Poor service, poor food, overall standard extremely poor. Not worthy of a second try, do yourself a favour and don't bother with the first try. Rude staff, unfriendly waitress. Made to feel uncomfortable as she was not coping with volume even though restaurant wasn't particulary busy. Not worth the trip no matter what the cost… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/02/2011

Worst ever!!! Waitress extremely rude. Poor service and food awful. Fried food in grease that was so old and reused it tasted bitter. I would definitely not recommend trying here. Had brought 2 young children and 3 adults and all were extremely disappointed… Read Full Review

Edible, average food, but nothing special. Portion sizes are relatively small (not really in line with an 'American' Diner), and prices are quite high considering… Read Full Review
