    In the Gaithersburg/Germantown area of Maryland, there are a group of guys that are building new roy's!! I haven't had roy rogers since McD's bought them a few years ago. They have the best roast beef, and best french fries.

    Mariott really sunk them, didn't they? I don't remember the company being so bad off until Willmar (Mariott) got involved.

    I liked their menu, though, even the fried chicken.

    oh sweet. Where exactly is this going to be? I grew up in gaithersburg, so give me roads :D

    I'll be sure to visit when I go home next...whenever that might be.

    I used to love roy's so much...best fried chicken ever.

    right now there's one on 118 (germantown rd.) right next to the library. That one is already built. And the other one is being built right next to lakeforest mall.

    Roy Rogers didn't go away. They can still be found in reststops all along the New York State Throughway. There's one in at the reststop north of poughkeepsie, and i think another near Coxsackie, and I think also another way up near plattsburgh.

    There are two about an hour away-ish (depending on the severity of your lead foot) in Leesburg, VA that have been there for years. They never did completely away with them, but they're definitely scarcer than they were before.

    well I live here, so I can eat before I even goto Penn station. I just choose not to so I can goto Roy's ;)

    I don't like to eat at most places out there because it's more expensive, being a tourist area. Except there's this one awesome deli on 8th and 37th(I think) that's REALLY good and pretty cheap.

    yeah but this one is special. it's almost more of a walk in restaurant...but really cheap. I love it.

    I used to go there all the time when I had an internship on 39th and 8th last year.

    they have THE BEST chicken quesadillas EVER. and they only make stuff after you order it.
