Checkers II, established in 1991, is a cozy colonial style restaurant located in the calm quiet of Union, IL. Owner and Chef, Alex Camen, a Switzerland Native, arrived in the United States at age 22 hoping to share his passion for cooking on a new level. Alex trained for three years as a professional Chef and completed a two year program to become a professional server. His experience and education in both the back and front of house gives Alex a unique level of expertise, and Union locals are grateful to have the pleasure of enjoying what Alex has to bring! Since moving to the United States, Alex continues to perfect his craft which is apparent in each of his dishes available at Checkers II.
