June 1, 2016 when went into Shoney's for supper. When we walked in the door, the manager was giving a customer a hard time of a strawberry pie that she insisted she didn't order, he kept hounding her that she ordered it. I felt bad for the lady. We were seated pretty fast, there were only 4 or 5 tables... More

The menu item I ordered was awful. The dish was called HALF-O-POUND. It was a hamburger without a bun and a baked potato. The... More

Went her for lunch after shopping at the mall. The food was under cooked, no favor. Should have gone to McDonald's across the street.
