A few weeks ago we stopped at a small museum on the Kanawha Blvd. in Charleston
Does this guy look familiar?
He sits high atop this tower which holds a tiny museum.
You can't go inside, you just walk around it and look at the displays inside the windows. This plaque tells of Shoney's founder, Alex Schoenbaum.
Here is inside one of the windows. I like the prices.
My husband remembers one time when they had the 'Big Boy' at the restaurant/bowling alley on the West Side down for repairs. Some boys from his high school "kidnapped him" on Halloween night. As a prank, they brought it to Sissonville High School and put it on the roof of the school where the main entrance was. The next day the principal spoke over the PA system and demanded "Who did this?" No one spoke up. They had the custodian take it down and return it to Shoney's. My husband still laughs when he recalls this memory.
I have memories of going there and the waitresses coming out to your car to get your order. They brought it back and attached the tray of food to your window. I didn't know you could go inside until one time a date took me inside to sit down and eat. Silly me, I didn't get out much, I only thought it was a 'drive in.'
Anyone have any memories of going to Shoney's or some other drive in and having them come to your car for your order?
