We aren't much for franchise restaurants but we were tired and hungry and the motel recommended Shoney's. What a pleasant surprise! Staff was super friendly and attentive. We had the buffet and it was all homemade and delicious. Clean and pleasant atmosphere and prices were reasonable. Great place!

Our first time in a Shoney's and really didn't know what to expect. We do not have any of these restaurants in NY. We were actually quite pleased. I was traveling with two of my teenager boys. There is no better place to feed big teen boys than at a place that is all you can eat food buffet. The... More

Stopped at Hillsville overnight on our way to Myrtle Beach. We asked the desk clerk if he could recommend an eatery close by. He suggested Shoney's. next door. He allowed that they had an excellent buffet at a good price. We had been avoiding Shoney's the last several years because their breakfast buffets (which we loved) had become so shoddy.... More

Stopped for the night at Motel 6 next door, short walk. Clean with a salad bar that manager kept a close eye on - he even stopped by to ensure all was well. Salads to standard comfort food with daily specials.

Wow, That was the last time I will ever stop at the Hillsville exit. We had an awful experience with a hotel there and then breakfast. tasteless, greasey, old, just terrible.

We chose not to have the buffet and ordered off the menu. The kitchen took a much longer time than I felt it should have to prepare and deliver the food. No one in the party ordered anything extreme. With the majority of patrons serving themselves, the service should have been much better.

The service was very slow. The food was not very good. My meal came with a biscuit and all I got was 2 pieces of toast with nothing else. I requested hot sauce with my meal, and she brought it out when she brought the check.

This Shoney's has a great buffet that includes meat, vegetables, fruit, salad, breakfast (all day), and deserts. Choose from a $9+ buffet for anything on the bar or $7+ for salad, soup, and fruit. They also have a full menu plus great deserts. Easy access off I-77 just west of the Hillsville exit. Easy reentry onto the interstate. Highly, highly... More

We decided to eat here at Shoney's The food was acceptable but to get our entree, we had to wait along time. Seemed to be almost an hour. We had wanted to get the dessert, but decided not to, as we didn't want to wait any longer in this restaurant.
