Guestbook

Share your favorite Stuckey’s memory! Our guestbook is your opportunity to share those experiences with others.

Just about everybody has a Stuckey‘s story, recalling a time when they took road trips in the family station wagon and found “highway happiness” at one of our stores.

We would love to hear your most fond memories from yesterday or today, and we know others would love to share in your experiences as well. Please take a moment or two and post your comments in our guestbook.

Back in the 1970's our annual road trip from Toronto Canada to Daytona beach Florida,I think we stopped at almost every stuckey's between these points, we looked forward to seeing souvenirs and trinkets each region had to offer. From those whole smoked hams hanging from the ceiling fixtures to the rare shrunken heads each stuckey's was unique and offered a chance to take a break from the boardem of being a kid in the back seat of a car on a long road trip. For a road side break there is no better place to take a break then at stuckey's

My parents managed 2 of them Selinsgrove, PA.and Grasonvill, MD. and my aunts,and uncles managed a lot of them also and had good friends that managed them they are,a dying store now that they have made them into diary queens and quick marts I had good memories and a lot of growing up in Stuckey's that's where I learned a lot of work experience and car experience how to check the oil. My sisters loved the pecan log rolls and pecan divinity and the box of old south candy along with the coconut patties. My dad would build displays of the pecan clusters and pecan log rolls stack em' high and watch them fly he would say.great memories living in the back room apartment and a lot of long hours in the store. The snow birds would come and buy pecans in the bags shelled and un-shelled to make there Christmas deserts and fruit cake as gifts time I will never forget.

I remember these when I was a kid. There are no more of them in Michigan. The pecan logs is the main thing I remember. One bite would give you a cavity, but worth it!

"My parents got a job managing a Stuckey's store when I was eight year old and they trained to run a Stuckey's in Marion Arkansas and then moved from Memphis to the Stuckey's store at Interstate 40 and 69 hiway in Decatur Tennessee and from 8 years old to 21 years old when I finished tech school I lived and I was raised in the back of a Stuckeys store. I moved back to Memphis in October of 1979 and have been here ever since but I have a cabin on the Tennessee river 5 miles from where the Stuckeys store was Yeah it was torn down many many years ago but I still have sweet memories every time a get off on exit 126 to go to the cabin;)"

Traveling on I10 in Texas & remembering the old Stuckey's. Decided to stop at travel center at 37311 interstate 10. Got gasoline only, the parking lot & area around the pumps was filthy. Decided not to even go into the store. The management at that location is doing something wrong. There is a Bucee's a miles down the road that is very clean. They have workers that are continually cleaning inside & outside. I was shockef at how bad outside looked.

A Stuckey's on roadtrips = family, comfort food, an oasis, and a life saver for people traveling with kids for 20 hrs and a very low budget. I always loved all the native american items, nostalgic items like Betty Boo, and the awesome staff. Those 99 cents breakfasts were like "heavenly mana". Thank You. We pray God may prosper your bussines.

I moved to stuckeys (Tipton, Iowa) in 1970 i was only 7. My dad was the manager and Stuckeys was first making its move up into the northern states. We lived there until i was 18 at which time "old man Stuckey" (he was a very smart and compassionate man) had passed away and the company was being sold out that we moved out as the store was shutting down. I have so many memories of Stuckeys that i wouldnt even know where to begin. Stuckeys had become my life. It was even my first job at the age of 14. We use to stop at every Stuckeys when we were on vacation trips. I even remember sometimes going to other stores with my dad so he could manage the store while they found new managers I will never forget this wonderful place and all that Stuckeys meant to me and my family. And those pecan rolls. Oh my so amazing!

In the 60's my brother and I would play a game with road signs and put a finger in the middle of the front seat whenever we would see a Stuckey's sign!! We would drive up and down the highways with my father and his maps no GPS!!!!!!

When we lived in Illinois, we would take trips home to Wisconsin we always stopped at Stuckey's and I always got a pecan roll, they are still my favorite candy bar.

When we would travel from the Columbus Ohio area to visit my mom's relatives in New Mexico, we would always stop at a Stuckey's off I-70 in Altamont IL. I always liked that place. I've visited as both a child and an adult. I wish it was still there.

I remember the road trips to Florida when I was younger, and seeing and visiting the Stuckeys. I can't wait to go there now with my daughter and pass this experience on. I will also make her count the Stuckey's roadside signs like I used to do.

When i was just a kid our father got a job transfer with the United States Navy. They paid for us to move from San Diego to Memphis Tennessee. We made it into a little vacation Stopping to see several sites including the grand canyon. A little closer to Tennessee we started stopping at Stuckeys for breakfast after we left our hotel in the morning to set off on the road again, I remember the food being delicious and the service very friendly. I would recomend anyone to stop in for a meal.

My Father has a great deal of family in Florida, and we lived in Ypsilani, MI. We used to take US 23 to I-75 then to Florida. I remember Stuckey's being ubiquitous all the way down. Mom especially loved the pecan logs and pralines. I once bought my first "Black Velvet" painting at one in Ohio...it was of Alice Cooper! I loved your storesAll through the '60's, '70s and '80s...There used to be a Stuckey's near Jackson, MI but it has been gone since the early '90s....Miss you folks!

"With the last name of Stuckey you can be sure during every childhood vacation our father ""religiously"" stopped at every Stuckey's along the highways we traveled! I still have one of the kids ""indian beaded"" belts that spells out Stuckey's, I got when I was about 8 years old. The pecan logs were my favorite. My dad used to fill up on the divinity. We also used to get a hamburger and coka cola, if we had been good during the long drives. Those were the days!"

"No big story here. But I have been to so many Stucey's in my life, and they were always a place to forward to while on Old Route 66. Stuckey's is Americana."

After we moved from Texas to Calif in the early 60s we would come back to Texas every year. When Larry, my baby brother came along and got to be about 3 or 4 he recognized the Stuckeys signs pretty quick and would cry when we passed the stores. So my Mom would see the signs as we drove and call my name. That was my clue to get my brother into the floorboard until we passed the sign. Of course the closer we got the more signs there was and little brother spent a lot of time in the floorboard until we had passed the Stuckeys. Then he was good until the next one. But when we got to stop, it was awesome. Burger, fries and a chocolate milk shake. Later after Stuckeys started disappearing, I would still travel and occasionally run into a Stuckeys. I would always stop and by Mom some Pecan Patties and log roll. Her eyes lit up when I gave them to her. I miss my Mom and whenever I pass a Stuckeys I think of her. Thanks for the memories and hope you make a comeback so someone 40 years from now can look back on some pleasant memories.

I remember Stuckey's as my favorite restaurant to stop at on our way to visit relatives out of state. I remember the good food, scrumptious pecan logs and fascinating souveniers and gifts. I also remember though I don't see in other comments is that there was a glassed in bee hive in the middle of the Stuckey's where honey bees could be observed. Great childhood memories.

I was only able to go to the Stuckey's in Vacaville California one time and then it was gone. I miss it terribly every time I drive by where it was. Somebody must have lost a lot of money building it for that short of time. If I was rich I'd reopen Stuckey's all over the country

The store in George, Wa. was the only place for decades where you could buy green peanuts in brine. Now the store is gone and I have to go online to find them..............tasty!
