When I was 6 and my family lived in Eastover Maryland, just over the line from Washington DC, we took a drive up to Chicago to see my father's father. All I remember about the trip is my mother letting me hand the turnpike ticket to the toll booth attendant and being responsible of keeping track of the Stuckey Billboards that tol;d us how many miles to the next Stuckeys.
Upon arriving, we freshened up, stocked up on snack food, had ice cream, and were on our way, again, looking for the next Stuckey roadside billboard.
Mom and Dad are gone. It's just me and my memories. And if I should unexpectedly fall into some money, I want to buy a new car and travel that route, alone, and relive my parents life and my childhood by stopping at every Stuckey I can find on that turnpike.

I was born in Va we used to drive from my Aunt's house to the Mappsville Stuckey's for breakfast on Sunday morning. Im glad its still there. So much has changed on the Eastern shore since I was a kid. And now Im lkiving in Ga. Im glad to find the roots of a store so down home has its roots here. Thanks for keeping some old traditions alive so I may share them with my kids & grand kids.
Keep up the good work Mr. Stuckey & family

In the late fifties and through the sixties the whole family loaded up at least twice a year for trips through the South visiting relatives.
The most memorable stop for all of us was Stuckey's because Mom, being the Southern Belle she is, loved pecans, and thus, loved the pecan roll.
It would be impossible to put a number on how many pecan rolls we bought on road trips.
It was sad to see through the years so many of the old stores go by the wayside. Your family is responsible for more memories than you will ever know.
Thanks for the web site, sure wish you had a lot more pictures of the old stores on here.
Many thanks to your family for making our family history a little more memorable.

Before we married, our first date was *supposed* to be a nice French-American Restaurant.
His car broke down, and we walked the Interstate in our formal attire to Stuckey's... laughing about this "romantic" date. On our third date, he proposed... now 33 years ago. We continued to eat (and camp) at Stuckey's until the last location in AZ closed. We miss you terribly... but have never forgotten you, and are *thrilled* that some items are available for purchase via the internet.
