Possible location of Shoney's Diner

Subject: Shoney's

Location: Shreveport/Vicksburg, United States, North America

Title: Rembering wrong, perhaps?

ID#: 149053466

In 2004 I made the first ever of my - (so far) - three, long-dreamed-of trips to the U.S. and we drove overland - as I always try to do - from San Francisco to LA then on to Atlanta via I-10 / I-20 (www.americanodyssey.bravehost.com/odyssey.htm).

I kept day-by-day journals of these trips writing them up each morning, later using the notes to prepare the website logs.

I was absolutely certain that when we reached Shreveport we found an excellent Shoney's Diner where we enjoyed a wonderful meal with pleasant service. I jotted it down in my notes the following morning and expanded on it later when writing up the log.

Today, (January 7th 2013), out of pure curiosity, I tried searching for this Shoney's on Google earth and Shreveport's web site which lists over 250 restaurants but no Shoney's!

However our next stop that day was Vicksburg and we stayed at La Quinta, just across the river.

Vicksburg DOES boast a Shoney's and using Google Earth's "street view" camera, I must admit that the setting of this Shoney's really does look like the one I remember. Is it possible that I really got confused over this and that the Shone'ys I remember was, in fact, at Vicksburg and NOT Shreveport.

Can any local residents or other knowledgeable person put me right on this?

Great travels guys!

Shoney's is a chain; many locations have closed in the last few years and more have closed recently.

hi, thanks for your reply and willingness to help - afraid it doesn't advance my request very much tho' 'cause I was trying to discover the address of a specific

Shoney's that I believe is located in Shreveport. But I DO thank you for trying.....

As biscuitcreek stated, the Shoney's chain isn't doing very well any many of their locations have closed.

There apparently was one in Shreveport and one in Bossier City (which borders Shreveport and it's hard to tell where one starts and the other ends). Both are closed.

It is south of I-20 , off of the main interstate. The Shreveport location is now a Chinese restauraunt:

Bossier City location is closed also, for a while there was a restaurant called "Mobe's" but it is also closed. Not sure if anything else is there. It's right off of I-20.

I hope that is helpful.

thanks a lot - it looks like you've "found" the one I was looking for! Pity it has closed. we really enjoyed our meal there on my first cross-country trip across the states.

by the way congratulations on Obama's inauguration!
