Sponsor Spotlight: Shoney’s

Sponsor Spotlight: Shoney’s

shoneys-signThanks to Shoney’s restaurant in Lebanon for being a DeadLand  food sponsor. Food sponsors provide one or more meals for our entire cast and crew. Take a look at their menu.

Shoney’s has been around for a long time. The first one opened in 1947 in Charleston, West Virginia ashoneys part of the Big Boy franchise. Remember the old Big Boy statues that used to stand out in front? Yeah, that’s the one. But the Shoney’s franchise spread so quickly that they soon covered the southeast and outgrew the Big Boy territory.  That’s when they struck out on their own.

The Shoney’s Big Boy burger became the All-American, and they got a new mascot–shoney-bear_oShoney Bear. You’ve got to admit, he’s pretty cute–and he’s collectible. From the original vintage version in the yellow shirt to the modern incarnation, folks snap these up. Check out this contest on the main Shoneys’ Facebook page. They’re almost always running some kind of contest, game, or special.

But we’re talking about a restaurant here, so the mostshoneys important thing is the food, right? Shoney’s has an eclectic  menu, so almost everyone can find something they like. This is what Kletia G. says about their burgers on Yelp.

” I ordered the BBQ bacon burger. The patty was obviously hand formed. They say their meat is never frozen and grain fed, i believe it. The char was wonderful, they served it pink, which i like, and the meat was tender and flavorful (NO musty flavor).  There was a LOT of delicious CRISPY bacon on it and the BBQ sauce was good, not amazing, but good! The fries were cooked perfectly and were also delicious.”

My personal weakness is for their desserts. When I was a child, a special treat was to go to Shoney’s with my grandmother and order a slice of strshoneys-strawberry-pieawberry pie. I can still see her sitting across from me, toasting me with a fork full of strawberry and whipped cream. “Now this is a pie,” she’d say. “Tastes just like summer.”

Grandma is gone now, but every time I order one, it brings back those memories. It still tastes like summer.

When Shoney’s added their hot fudge cake to the menu, we added that to our repertoire and alternated between them. It was a rahot-fudge-cake-2_ore treat, something we indulged in only a few times a month, but it was an outing we always looked forward to.

What’s your favorite Shoney’s memory? Tell us in the comments!
