Do you know any restaurants that still accept personal checks?


I was wondering because I had someone try to pay with one today. The last place I remember taking checks was in Monroe and I don't even remember the name of the place.

I can't imagine anywhere. This is not 1986.

The Red Wagon in Harahan does. Cash and checks only. No credit cards.

I was behind a black lady at the grocery store the other day and she paid with a check. First check I'd seen in a while. Figures I'd see one at Winn Dixie on government street.

checks need to be done away with (this will happen as old people become less and less). Along with pennies.

I think he is referring to the generation of check writers.

frick those fuel perks. I was using them religiously for a couple months shopping strictly at Winn Dixie. Then I started paying attention and looking around and Winn Dixie's shite is so marked up. I thought target was expensive, but most shite I buy was more expensive at Winn Dixie. I stopped going there. I didn't feel like I was conning out ontop with the fuel perks/ their high prices.

Pizza Man in Covington is cash and checks only. They don't even check to see if it is your check of what information is on said check.

He did get mad when I casually told him that it was 2012 and no one pays in restaurants with checks anymore. The thing about it is that he left it on the table and tried to roll out. He knew what he was doing.

If I was a restaurant owner I sure as hell wouldn't accept personal checks.

Because if you have a checkbook, you have a debit card. And the only reason people would use a check in that type of situation is if it's stolen or they don't have the funds in their account that day.
