mays restaurantFifty years ago the first "May's" sign was hung on 5640 Urbana Pike. Doug May remembers playing in the two lane road in front of his parents place. Route 240, as it was known then, was the main road from Frederick to Washington D.C. Long time residents of the area can remember coming to May’s for anything from canned goods to hardware, produce to fishing tackle. More than a few people, now with children of their own, have confessed that they “helped themselves” to penny candy at May’s when they were growing up.

There have been many changes over the years. The old sedan delivery truck doesn't make its pre-dawn run to the Baltimore produce market anymore. However, May’s does receive fresh produce daily from another long time Frederick business, James Avery Clark & Sons. Maybe you can spot the old clipboard with “Clark’s Produce” on it, one of the many items of memorabilia filling the restaurant. Be sure to look at the old pictures of May’s above the mantle. That cute little boy with one pant leg rolled up (he was interrupted while shooting marbles to pose for the picture) yes, that’s Doug!

In years gone by local folks gathered on Friday and Saturday nights to shop and socialize. Today’s May’s continues to be a favorite gathering place. New arrivals to the area are discovering the good value, great food and friendly service May’s offers.

May’s is a friendly place—always has been, always will be. Just as Doug’s mom Bernice had to be reminded the checkout line was getting long as she chatted, so too we think you should be forewarned about Doug. Oh, no doubt he’d be delighted to tell you about his train collection, oyster cans, the milk bottles, any of the old “stuff” we now call antiques. Just be sure you invite him over to your table to talk – please! Don’t be in a hurry to leave. May’s is a friendly place, you’ll only come in a stranger once.
