Being from Eastman, GA, the home of Stuckey's, I'd like to say "WELCOME".
I certainly do miss seeing the original Stuckey's store in Eastman, but when I go to the main redlight in town, I can picture Mr. W.S. Stuckey, Sr., swinging on his front porch.
Mr. and Mrs. Stuckey were dear-hearted people and greeted everyone with a big smile.
My Grandfather was Mr. Stuckey's personal barber and I have a photo of my Grandfather giving Mr. Stuckey's grandson his first haircut. This photo is in the book, "STUCKEY". Get a copy of the book, it is fantastic.
Those are my personal memories of Stuckey's, but the best part actually was their delicious pecan log rolls! No one can make them as good as Stuckey's.

Here it is, 4:00am and just returned on a trip from St. Louis, MO via Omaha, NE along I-29 and I-35. I just hate to seeing those teal roof buildings boarded up.
Every year, when I was a child in the 70's, we would stop at a Stuckey's along this same rout to St. Louis and have a sit down hot meal before sun down. What great memories!! I notice the teal roofs this past trip and once I got home, I took a chance on the internet and by my luck here it was "Stuckeys.com"!!!
I really hope the Stuckeys of old comes back like it once was. BK's and Golden Arches along the highway just isn't the same. Thanks so much for this web site. The photos are FANTASTIC!!!!!

Lived in the Tucumcari location with my g'parents Arthur and Ida Carlisle in 1962. Remember my g'mother making the sandwiches for the snack bar. Remember the coyotes howling at night too! Do you have any pics of that location that you could send me? Thank you.

I visited a Stuckey's on a trip down to Flroida and bought
a box of Hunkey Dory Pecan Almond Buttercrunch Popcorn;
Can I get it through your on-line store?? It is very good!
