The fast-food joint Checkers opened on Tuesday at 111 Court St., in the former Busy Chef spot, bringing yet another hamburger option for Downtown Brooklynites. Franchise owner Shaista Siddiqui told BHB she’s excited “to become part of this community.”

The restaurant serves burgers, bacon-wrapped burgers, chicken sandwiches, chicken fingers, and delicious spicy fries. And, the milkshakes are thick and taste wonderful. Best of all, there’s a cute outdoor patio in the back if you weave around the hallway, past the bathrooms (see photo below).

The hotspot will be open late — on Monday through Thursday, it’s open from 11 am to 1 am, Friday and Saturday until 2 am, and Sundays until midnight. Safe to say, however, there is no drive-thru. But there are those milkshakes until 2 am!

Here are more pictures from yesterday’s grand opening:

    Great fries. Love the seasoned fries but the burgers are terrible. Worse than fast food. Five Guys doesn’t need to worry about the competition.

    Tried them yesterday, they are fast, however the burgers are small, not much difference to Mcdonalds, the fries are good, but yep, 5 guys doesn’t need to stress
