Detlaf Neuman had a dream -- he longed to open a restaurant where he could share his mother's classic German recipes with friends and soon-to-be-friends in a family style setting. In 1982, his dream came true when he opened Checkers Old Munchen in Pompano. Sadly, Detlaf is no longer with us, but in 2007 his nephew Mathew Moore took over and has kept Uncle Detlaf's spirit alive for well over a decade! Over the years, Mat has become a German beer expert and has turned this charming old-world space into not only a Zagat-Rated Bavarian restaurant, but also the best German bar around!
Walls lined with weathered wooden shelves stocked with authentic German beer steins and an impressive selection of over 30 German beers behind the bar, you'll soon be an expert of one of the thngs Germans do best (drinking beer!). Ask about their German Beer Tour! Return often enough and you could become a "Deutsche Bier Meister" (German Beer Master) with your own plaque, a German beer T-shirt and Das Boot to take home!
The ambiance will transport you to another place in time with a vibe that's warm, welcoming, and full of character. Over the years their authentic German fare and great service has attracted a loyal following who can't get enough of their famous Bavarian Onion & Apple Soup. Showcased in the Sun Sentinel, this insanely delicious soup combines sauteed onions and apples in a beef & lager broth along with melted Provolone. COME ON! Then move on to the golden brown potato pancakes with applesauce and sour cream. RIDICULOUS. The famous Veal Schnitzel is served alongside the best red cabbage ever.... and as you would imagine, they've got the very BEST Wurst!
But the signature dish here is the TWO-POUND fall-off-the-bone Pork Shank with Spaetzel (home-style German noodles). And you won't believe the reasonable prices for this extraordinary food! The only way to cap such a delicious meal is with the warm Homemade Apple Strudel served with vanilla ice cream and caramel syrup...unless, of course, you'd prefer Kelly's German Chocolate Cake with homemade coconut & pecan frosting! Once you're comfortably seated in this inviting restaurant, you'll want to return again and again...and again....
