If you have friends who eat dinner at Golden Corral, you'll see them at shoneys eating breakfast.

I too would be curious. A few years back, I was so turned off by the food, It took till last year till I tried them again. It was no better. I hope it has gotten better because I would like to put it back into "rotation".

Sorry, I guess I'm slow but I'm not sure what you mean. I eat at CiCis because it is passable, some variety & cheap, I always say "the food is not the best but there is plenty of it". I kinda feel the same way about Golden Corral, is that along the lines of what you mean? Is the breakfast bar better than the evening buffet or Golden Corral....or is there just "plenty of it"?

I have heard great things about the breakfast bar too. But what about the rest of it? Do they have anything good on the menu and how is the service now? Any better?

Breakfast bar is for quanity not quality. Most people like it because they can eat a weeks worth of food for $ 7.00. Then leave a whole dollar as a tip when they have sat in the waitresses station for over an hour. I have been and the food is edible at best. The worst part is watching the 300 lb plus people eating and eating and eating. I had to move to the other side of the table as I was going to be sick from watching this woman eat her 6th plate of food. The waitress told me that she has had people come in just before breakfast is over and they move right into lunch an never miss a beat.

At places like Shoney's its about filling your gut cheaply with lousy greasy food. If you want 5 star food go elsewhere. You eat 10 bucks worth of food and 10000 calories and take 6 months off your life. Bon Appetit!!!!

I went there a week ago, and the food was very good, staff was as friendly as you can get in this area, place was clean, bathroom was clean.

Its just standard breakfast food---not very well cooked and a very small selection---but its fast food,fill up on it and then hope you make a better decision for lunch.

I have a good friend who's son worked at Shoney's for a couple of weeks. The dad MADE his son quit when he heard how unsanitary the kitchen was there and the quality of the drug-using cooks who brag about their drug use even to a new employee. I will never eat there again and I am sad as I liked it before I heard about all this!

pleeassee,,,,,,,do you think that is the only place in town like that..get real...anytime you eat out, you don't know where your food has been or how it was cooked. you don't know what goes on behind closed doors. You take a chance EVERYTIME you eat out somewhere.. think about it..

I dislike buffets because so many people act like a bunch of filthy, uncivilized savages and make a huge mess out of the whole thing. It's disgusting because inconsiderate morons let their kids put their fingers in the food or cough and sneeze on everything without even making an effort to cover their mouths or turn their heads. I'm not a clean freak or anything but COME THE HELL ON, PEOPLE!
not good

the food is AWFUL. I had high expectations for them considering the "new menu items" and "management changing" they've been promoting so much in their commercials, but it sucks as bad as ever. Terribly disappointed, and the service was definately sub-par as well. I don't see how they've managed to stay in business. two thumbs down, and I only regret that I don't have more thumbs.
