It's a Shoney's

Pretty much what you expect from this buffet-style restaurant chain. We had really wanted the breakfast buffet that Shoney's is famous for, but had just missed the cut-off time and were into the lunch hour, so maybe this influences my review, but I felt that the food was not quite hot enough and... read more

Here's a family restaurant that was once plentiful in the Asheville area. We boasted five of the Shoney's Restaurants back in the 80's here. They are all gone in Western North Carolina now, including the Waynesville location. Apparently, they are more interested in relocating to the northern tier of states, instead of staying down south. Their iconic buffet is a... More

It was Sunday evening and we had the dinner buffet with ice tea to drink. Excellent meal. Chicken was fabulous and the fried shrimp were large.

I went to Shoney's for lunch because it was convenient. Staff was friendly and attentive, food was good and priced right. The buffet was fresh and of appropriate temperature. I'll go back.

The breakfast buffet was good and the coffee was hot! The waitresses were very nice and quick to offer refills. I would recommend it.

If you live in Johnson City then you know that there is not many breakfast buffets here. I just found out that Shoney's has a breakfast buffet during the week and the only other place is Golden Coral but it is only on the weekend. Anyways I'd took my family there for breakfast on a Tuesday morning and the bar... More

This one out by the mall in Johnson City was pretty good. The buffet was good. It had chicken, ribs, steak, fried fish. Had a salad bar and dessert bar on it. I enjoyed the chicken and fried fish.

Second trip to Johnson City this year. Enjoyed eating here enough the first time that we came back for more (twice more this trip). Had the breakfast/lunch buffet one day and the dinner buffet another night. We seldom ever eat from a buffet but everything looked so good and was extremely inexpensive. Everything was tasty and well prepared, especially the... More
