Here's a shot of the neon sign for the Southern Maid Donuts, located near downtown Odessa. This donut factory features the "magic donut".

According to the Southern Main Donuts website, Southern Maid Donuts began in 1937 by Mr. and Mrs. J.B. Hargrove. A young couple coming out of the throws of the Great Depression, they created Southern Maid because they saw the need in the market for quality donuts. They created their own recipes, which have stood the test of time. Quality ingredients and uncompromised procedures are reason for the continued success of the Hargrove family to this very day.

Any roadside trip through Texas would not be the same without a stop at a Stuckey's. Stuckey's began with a roadside pecan stand in Georgia in 1937 then grew to over 350 locations. Many roadside travelers will remember the familiar blue roofs as they hit the road for the past 70 years. In the late 70's Stuckey's was owned by a corporation and the familiar stands started to become ghosts. The number dropped to 75. Now with W.S. Stuckey Jr. at the helm, Stuckey's has grown back to around 200 locations and hopefully will be around for our kids and grand kids. 02-07
