Last I knew, they still had one just south of Springfield in Ft. Belvoir, on U.S. Route 1. They sold off most of their stores in the Washington, DC area to McDonalds a decade or so ago, and McDonalds's took advantage of the better real estate locations they had and demolished and rebuilt them... without real food.
I was surprised to read that even at its zenith, the Roy Rogers chain only had 300 stores. It seemed like more to me because as luck would have it, they were convenient to me both on the Mass Pike and the Jersey Pike.
Roy Rogers is presently committed to expansion, so hopefully neither of us will have to drive as far as we do now to get to their "fixins bar."
