Our hotel suggested that along with Waffle House, Shoneys was an option for early lunch. Although there were very few customers, the place was loud. Employees shouting to each other, loud piped in rap music and they were changing over the buffet from breakfast to lunch. It was awkward trying to feed the people in my party because they only had cold salads on the buffet and the hot food came out at 11am. One person in our party got so annoyed with the chaotic atmosphere that he insisted we leave during the meal. We got our check and walked out. I was embarrased for the person we were trying to feed because we had to leave. Lunch buffet was going to consist of unhealthy country food - mac & cheese, fried chicken, mayonaise salads, vegetables cooked with pork, etc. This location seems to attract the "all you can eat" load up your plate crowd. Never. Going. Back. Please know that Jackson, MS has better, fresher, more civilized options.
