History of Jimmie's – A Family
In May 1963, James Mills Sr. left the Horseshoe Club to open what
is today known as Jimmie’s Paddock. The business was formerly
known as White Ladies Restaurant.
With a lot of hard work Jimmie remodeled the building, modernized the
kitchen, and updated the motel to accommodate local people and tourists
from many areas and many backgrounds.
During this time, it was the peak of the slot machine era in Charles
County. Jimmie’s Paddock was widely known all across Maryland,
DC, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and even New
York for their slot machines and delicious food.
was open 24 hours a day, offering $1.99 All-You-Can-Eat Shrimp, and
over 40 slot machines. At this time, Route 301 was bristling with traffic
and Charles County’s economy was booming with restaurants, car
dealerships, gas stations and much more, but this all came to a halt
in July, 1968. The law makers voted to outlaw slot machines entirely.
Jimmie's Paddock struggled to stay in business. With the outlaw of
slot machines and the opening of Interstate 95, Route 301 became a
ghost town. Jimmy tried everything he could: he continued Jimmie’s
Paddock as a restaurant which offered sit-in and carry-out food. He
added a juke box and pool tables. He catered to truckers and blue collar
workers. Although he survived the hardship, Jimmy decided to convert
the restaurant into a package store, liquor store, gas station and
Here today we still stand; Jimmy passed away October 7, 2000. Jimmie's
Paddock is still run by the Mills family. Jimmie's Paddock offers the
same cigarettes, and the same beer it did 44 years ago.
