I haven't been to Shoney's in years. Most have closed down. (Some needed to.). The food was very good with good service. Brought back good memories.

I really enjoyed the lunch buffet. Delicious fried chicken and rib tips that melted in my mouth. The salad was very fresh too. Excellent friendly service, and a great quick lunch.
