Checkers establishing new restaurant on Elmwood Avenue

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Part of a goal to put five new Checkers Drive In restaurants in western New York is set to be realized on Elmwood Avenue.

UCG Ventures LLC is working to open the restaurants and says it will be opened on 2001 Elmwood Avenue, near the Regal Cinemas building.

The nearly 1,000 square foot building will be a $900,000 project and will feature a drive in and a patio, but no dine-in service.

That’s contrary to another drive in style restaurant which is coming to Cheektowaga. Sonic says they’re going to implement both a drive in and sit in component, making it the largest Sonic in the nation.

Checkers is expecting to break ground before the end of summer. See what’s on the menu there here. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
