I think Shoneys are all different! I don't go very often because I get tired of the choices, but they do have things you can always count on, foodwise. Most of them still have the best onion rings around.

this is most likely the WORST shoneys around. i tried several times to eat there. i offered several polite complaints, cause i try to be a patient and forgiving person, but even i have my limits. my usual visit would start right off with my asking them to put some fresh lettuce out on the salad bar because their lettuce was usually wilted and almost always had a pink film on it which is probably mold. during one visit, a waitress was attending the hot vegetable bar and when i asked her to put out some fresh mashed potatoes, she dumped fresh mashed potatoes into old, dry, crusty mashed potatoes that had been sitting there for hours. i actually even tried to stop her by saying something like "really? you're serious?" then it was like PLOP and STIR! i also had a problem with thier okra on one occasion. i asked them to put out some fresh okra, so they re-fried the stale okra they had and put it out, and of course, as re-fried okra is, it was grease soaked and hard as a rock. when i complained about the okra being greasy and hard as a rock, he said " well, it's deep fried " - all i can say is what a smart _ _ _ ! my advice? save your money. heat up a lean quisine or something.
