This is basically a small shrine to Shoney's. There is column with a BIg Boy on top and a plaque with the history of the restaurant below as well as some pictures. Interesting to see if you are in the area.

It is not a museum...very much a shrine to days gone by. It is a pillar/plinth of sorts with a Big Boy on top. Around the base is information regarding the foundation of both businesses and the link between them.
