A 50 Year Love Affair Celebrates at Woody's Bar-B-Q in Lake Wales

Jacksonville, Florida (August 2010)

Maggie and Chuck Martin met 50 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida while Chuck was in the Navy and Maggie employed at Southern Bell. Today, as they are preparing to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, they have invited friends and family to their favorite restaurant ~ Woody’s Bar-B-Q® in Lake Wales on September 3rd.
According to Maggie “We wouldn’t have our party anywhere else. Jason (Allgood) is a dear friend, a restaurant manager who makes us feel like we’re family. We eat there 3 to 5 times a week because we’re comfortable, the food is good, the camaraderie is great and we love Jason”.
General Manager, Jason Allgood is equally as excited as the Martin’s. “It is an honor to have such a sweet and funny couple bless us with their 50th wedding anniversary. My employees all want to work that night so they can be a part of it. My wife and I will oversee the evening and do everything we can to make sure that it is just as special as the day they married. We are all blessed to have such great customers; we work hard everyday to build patron relationships like this one with the Martin’s in Lake Wales Florida”.  

As Woody’s Bar-B-Q® celebrates its 30th anniversary throughout 2010, founders Yolanda Mills-Mawman and Woody Mills believe in tradition and making their patrons feel like part of their extended family. “What a wonderful coincidence that this couple met in Jacksonville where we began Woody’s 30 years ago. Now they’re continuing their tradition with a 50th anniversary at their local Woody’s” glows Yolanda.
Maggie favorites: Baby Backs, Sloppy Woody’s, Catfish and Shrimp.
Chuck’s favorites: Prime Rib, Chicken Specials, Mac N’ Cheese, Mashed Potatoes & Gravy.
Chuck’s secret to a happy marriage: Say yes to everything!
Maggie’s secret to a happy marriage: LOVE!


With 30+ locations in Florida, Tennessee and North Carolina, Woody’s Bar-B-Q® has become a legendary family-owned Southern dining treasure recognized for its smokin’ family-friendly restaurant, full-service catered events, traditional slow-smoked meats and secret recipe Bar-B-Q sauces.
