As one of the most popular sayings in history goes, the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Shoney’s, an American restaurant treasure, figured this out 75 years ago and on this coming Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19, the iconic All-American brand will prove it again with a special Fresh Food Bar.  

A free Hot Fudge Cake for Dads is just showing off yet that is how Shoney’s rolls. The special Fresh Food Bar will include a specialty protein, a rare appearance of delicious BBQ Ribs. Just like with most vegetables, all of the proteins are freshly-made or freshly-prepared in Shoney’s kitchens daily.  

You can add Shoney’s Signature Crispy Chicken, Crispy Whitefish and Meatloaf as main features. Let’s keep going … Fresh Steamed Broccoli, Green Beans with Peppers, Mashed Potatoes, Cinnamon Apples, Corn, Squash Casserole, Macaroni & Cheese, Steamed Cabbage, Crispy Okra and Roasted Red Potatoes. All of this – and this is not a typo – starting at $14.99. Full yet? Not yet. Shoney’s keeps piling it on with Dinner Rolls, Cornbread Muffins, Potato and Cabbage Beef soups and Peach Cobbler.  

Shoney’s famous Hot Fudge Cake, which has its own national holiday, has been a brand staple since 1947 and has played a key role in the brand’s recent resurgence. Shoney’s serves over 2 million Hot Fudge Cakes each year, all to the delight of its valued guests. On the first Thursday in December every year, Shoney’s declares National FREE Hot Fudge Cake Day and serves thousands of its prized dessert to all guests free of charge with no purchase required. 

“We love serving fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers every day of the year,” says Shoney’s Chairman and CEO David Davoudpour and dad to two amazing kids. “Father’s Day is a special day for us and we have created a can’t-miss selection of the best of the best that Shoney’s offers. There is simply no other place to be this going Sunday as we celebrate all Dads.”
