National burger chain Checkers is bringing two locations to Columbia. Check out where

A fast-food restaurant known for its burgers and fries is planning two locations in Columbia.

Checkers, which has hundreds of drive-thru restaurants across the U.S., is currently prepping a spot at 7373 Two Notch Road in Columbia. That’s just south of the interchange between Two Notch and Interstate 20. It will be next door to a Harbor Inn seafood restaurant and not far from a Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse.

Construction work on the Two Notch Checkers building appeared to be ongoing when a reporter rode by on Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, a Checkers also is planned for 901 Bush River Road. That’s just east of Interstate 26 and less than a mile west of the Dutch Square Center mall. That will be on the site where an H. Rubin Vision Center used to be.

The Atlanta-based Falcons Group is developing the two Columbia Checkers. Falcons Group operates Checkers (and its associated brand Rally’s) restaurants in a host of states, per its website.

When reached by phone Wednesday morning, an official with Falcons Group did not yet have an opening date for either Columbia Checkers location. The location on Two Notch Road is further along in the construction process.

The Checkers menu includes a host of burgers, as well as hot dogs, fries, chicken tenders, fish sandwiches, slushies and more. Among its burgers is the famed Triple Baconzilla, which, as the Checkers website notes, comes with “three large hand-seasoned, 100% beef hamburger patties piled high with four slices of crispy bacon, two slices of American cheese, melted cheddar cheese, ketchup and mayonnaise all served on a toasted bakery-style bun.”
