Shoney's lunch buffet is more than satisfying for me. The fried chicken is really very good. They usually have two other meat sides, such as bbq ribs, ham, chicken livers, stir-fry, etc., good variety of vegetables, nice salad makings, soups, etc.

This is a great place to eat. Warm atmosphere and friendly staff. They have a military discount. I have never gotten a bad meal here. And the prices are good also.

We really enjoyed our visit to this Shoney's. We had just lost a very close almost lifelong friend and the waitress here (wish we had taken down her name) was so nice, courteous and attentive! We stayed quite awhile and never felt like we were...More
