Review of Shoney's

Shoney's
Ranked #16 of 39 Restaurants in Emporia
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 23, 2012

For about $10 each, we got an amazing meal that included very good chicken and rice soup, a salad that was fresh, salmon (large piece with no fishy taste) with a large serving of vegetables and rice. I even commented to my husband that the vegetables were cooked quite well for this type of restaurant.

For a quick meal, pretty good even from a nutrition standpoing and great value, you cannot go wrong with this Shoney's.

We went to Shoney's because it was within walking distance from the hotel, and did not want to get back in the car after driving all day. The service was good. There seemed to be a lot of locals (usually a good sign). Varied selection on the menu, so something for everyone, or you can choose to eat from the buffet.

I went there to avoid fast food places. I was surprised to find an appetizing array of down home food at the buffet. Cabbage, greens, potatoes,red beans, etc. The fried chicken was a little dry at the edges - but then that was just like home, too. Great sweet tea. Friendly and attentive wait staff.
