Checkers Food Van – End of an Era?

PM 6 November 2010 19

I heard on the grapevine that Checkers Food Van in Belconnen is closing tonight – can this be true?

I’m interstate at the moment and the RiotACT is my only way of discovering the truth!


What’s Your opinion?

You SHOULD be safe for the next few weeks then. Exams soon! We might still be at Maccas in the middle of the night, but that’s for study energy and not drunk food! lol

You can always do the drive through on foot!

OH&S JB ! They cant serve you if your on foot.

Cabbies in the City sit outside Maccas and charge people to take them through drive-thru !!

They don’t care at Belco. They try to enforce that at some other 24 hour Maccas but at Belco there are always drunk Uni students climbing over your car.

They don’t pay much attention to that from what i’ve seen. I go through there sometimes on my way from from a late night at uni…but half the time I drive in and back out because of all the people hanging around or walking through the drive through.

Checkers is where many UC students used to go for food when they do all nighters in the computer labs.

Yep – it was a common destination at 2am when pushing through to get assignments finished.

Checkers has probably been going downhill since the Belconnen Maccas opened 24/7.

The bus interchange ceasing to exit was probably the final nail in it’s coffin.

Ah yes, I burned the roof of my mouth on many a jam doughnut from checkers. Funny how the outside of me could be so friggin’ cold whilst the inside was being blistered by molten red goo.

What will the drunk people eat in the middle of the night in belco?

I guess there’s always Maccas… Sorry future drunk me!

I thought maccas was drive-through only in the wee hours.

Wow that sucks. Checkers was a rite of passage thing for my mates and I. We’d go out for out first nights in Civic and then go past Checkers. What will we belconnen people do now? I guess there’s always Maccas but until they start making grog bogs, I guess it’ll be straight home from Civic. Sorry future drunk me!

No more checkers. What will the drunk people eat in the middle of the night in belco?

Someone is probably passing the last GB now.

Yep, just went past there and picked up some chips and gravy and a grog bog and they are definitely closing, I asked if they are re-locating and they said no 🙁

Can they move back up to Weedon Close, where they used to be years ago?

It’s on facebook (there’s even a group) so it must be true.
