Planning to travel on the Atlantic City Expressway over Memorial Day weekend? Travelers will be happy to know that tolls will be free on May 26th.
Chicky’s & Pete’s has partnered with the South Jersey Transit Authority (SJTA) and the Atlantic City Expressway to start the summer off again by offering tourist fares over Memorial Day weekend.
On Friday, May 26, from 5:00pm to 6:00pm, Chickies and Pete will be paying tolls, cash, and EZ Passes for all drivers at the Eastbound Toll Booth exit in Egg Harbor, NJ.
“Free Tall Friday has become one of my favorite summer traditions,” said Pete Chalokki, Chairman and CEO of Chickies & Pete. “It’s a great way to thank everyone who has supported us over the years and start the summer in a fun way.”
Free tolls aren’t the only thing the restaurant and SJTA are offering to kick off the summer. Also, on Fridays from noon to 5 p.m., Chickies and Pete will be offering free orders of world-famous crab fries from his truck at Frank S. Farley Plaza.

In honor of the holiday, Chickies & Petes also partnered with the Patriot Foundation to provide resources and support for veterans returning from service.
In honor of his family’s military traditions, Charokki chose Memorial Day weekend to pay the toll.
“My father and my uncle were all military,” said Charokki. “In fact, my restaurant mentor, Uncle George, earned a Silver Star for his bravery.
