We arrived in Greenville in time for a late lunch on Saturday. Our plan had been to eat at a different nearby chain restaurant (CB), but the wait there was 40+ minutes and we were hungry. So, Shoney's it was.
We expected a cheap lunch buffet and we got what we expected. Not a huge selection, and the fried chicken was REALLY greasy. But... it was cheap and plentiful and no more or less than we expected.
Pros: the staff were fantastic. We were greeted in a friendly way, quickly seated, and our server was attentive. Also... prices were very competitive.
Cons: not so many choices on the buffet as I would have liked, and the quality was so-so.
