From YUMMM!, the Metro Pulse Restaurant Guide:
Shoney’s has been serving families for 50 years, growing to 20 restaurants in ten East Tennessee counties and remains one of Knoxville’s longest running family-friendly restaurants.
From the start, Shoney’s has been a favorite of locals and travelers. Their siren calls came in the form of the Hot Fudge Cake, Strawberry Pie, the All-American Burger and grilled Slim Jim Sandwich along with the All-You-Care-To-Eat Buffet. Shoney’s is famous for their Breakfast Buffet: a full offering of morning favorites and plenty of them. Budget minded eaters also throng to the Lunch and Dinner Buffets that include a copious variety of chicken, steak, seafood, hamburgers, sandwiches and the All-You-Care-To-Eat Soup, Salad and Homestyle Vegetable Buffet. With all those options, even the hard-to-please relative will leave with a grin from ear-to-ear!
In recent years, Shoney’s has mixed it up a little with new items, including “Lifestyle” menu options that feature lower fat meals that are less than 550 calories. So Shoney’s really does offer plenty of choices for the whole family.
Shoney’s offers a little bit of everything and it’s a good place to bring the little ones. If you can’t get satisfaction from the array of food offered at the buffet, there’s a full menu with including fried shrimp, spaghetti, and the perennial favorite of the tots, chicken fingers. Since kids age 4 and under eat free with the purchase of an adult meal—and kids ages 5-10 can choose from Shoney’s Kid’s menu, with all menu items priced under $3.50—the value and satisfaction equation looks pretty good for a family night out.
Taking into account that grandparents and other senior family members may be visiting for the holidays, Shoney’s courts the over-60 set with the Golden Age Club Discount Card. This card entitles them to 10 percent off on all regular menu items (with limited exclusions). Shoney’s is clearly the best choice when you are treating the whole tribe to a holiday dinner out. They gladly welcome groups, too! For large holiday gatherings call ahead for the option of reserving a private dining room. If your group travels by bus, Shoney’s parking lots have plenty of room.
If it’s more convenient for your gathering to be at home, at church or for a special event, have Shoney’s come to you! Call about three weeks in advance for catering options. Shoney’s caters any type of event or food, from formal to casual, all within your budget. Shoney’s offers Gift Cards, a gift that can keep on giving throughout the year. So, make the holidays even merrier this year and include Shoney’s in your family gatherings! “Let’s eat!®”
