Ready to party like it’s 1947?

If not, you will be soon. From now through late October, Shoney’s will celebrate its 70th birthday with food deals.

The best part?

They’ll cost you less than a buck. Take that, inflation!

Celebrate Shoney’s Birthday With Food Deals Through October

On Sept. 5, 1947, the first Shoney’s opened its doors in West Virginia. Today, the family-friendly restaurant has expanded to 16 states and become a household name in the South.

To celebrate its big day, the chain will offer 70-cent specials every day of the week until Oct. 22 — that’s nearly seven weeks of cheap food!

Here’s what menu items Shoney’s will offer for 70 cents each day:

  • Monday: Slim Jim sandwich
  • Tuesday: Ice cream delight
  • Wednesday: All-American burger
  • Thursday: Short-stack of pancakes
  • Friday: Five chicken wings
  • Saturday: Slice of strawberry pie
  • Sunday: Coke float

There’s something for everyone. If you’re not in the mood for a Slim Jim sandwich — what is that, exactly? — then you can’t go wrong with pancakes or a thick, juicy burger.

To get in on these deals, head to the Shoney’s website to find a location near you.

Turning 70 looks good on you, Shoney’s. Thanks for the celebration!
