Headed to the Jersey Shore for Memorial Day Weekend? If you time your trip right, you could treat yourself to free Crab Fries and a free toll thanks to Chickie's & Pete's.

To kick off Memorial Day Weekend, Friday, May 24th is "Free Toll Friday!"


The South Jersey Transportation Authority and Chickie's & Pete's have reportedly partnered up to offer motorists incentives to travel the Atlantic City Expressway on their way to the beaches for the holiday.

For one hour only, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., this Friday, May 24th, Chickie's will save you $4.70 by picking up the cost of the eastbound ACX Egg Harbor City Toll Plaza for vehicles passing through both the cash and EZ-Pass lanes, according to Chickie's & Pete's on Facebook.

Earlier that day, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., just ahead of the toll at Farley Plaza, Chickie's & Pete's will offer a free serving of its famous Crab Fries for those who stop off to say hello.

Now, those freebies may not sound like much, but at a time when we're paying astronomical gas and food prices, it's a pretty awesome gesture on the part of SJTA and Chickie's.

Visit Chickie's Crabfries® Express Food Truck and check out the outdoor celebration with complimentary treats and beverages from Hershey’s Ice Cream, Mars, Carlo’s Bakery, Applegreen and Monster Energy Drink, according to nbcphiladelphia.com.

Dozens of other organizations, vendors, artists and exhibitors will be out at Farley Plaza, including Atlantic County's own Funny Farm animal rescue/sanctuary, New Jersey State Police K9 Team, Atlantic City International Airport Fire and Rescue, and more. You can even meet Dalmatian puppy dogs!


You can check out a petting zoo and vintage cars on display.

Oh, and there's one more thing. Chickie's remembers the real reason for Memorial Day Weekend: Honoring those who served.
