Unless you are really hungry or in a hurry..pass this one by. I dropped in about 7pm..there were only 4 other people in the place. Food was below what you would expect from Shoney's

Industrialized factory food out of the freezer and cans. Think school or hospital cafeteria. I think they even get their salad in a bag. Stay away!

We had the breakfast buffet, which had a mix of typical breakfast foods such as eggs and bacon, fruit and some unusual things such as jelly and mousse. Nothing to write home about, but no complaints either.

Service was quick, friendly and efficient. Food was hot and good. It's not the Ritz, but it's a clean place that serves good American style food at an inexpensive price.

Shoney's isn't one of the standbys that has an excellent salad bar that offers a wide variety of food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Excellent burgers and the famous slim Jim sandwich.
