Drive-by: Ex-Shoney’s building 12/28/12

The building renovations are coming along on the new Restaurant South building. The North Gloster building previously was Shoney’s.

Blair Hughes, and her husband, Hamp, hope to open the restaurant in January or February (previous coverage). Blair will operate Restaurant South in addition to her current restaurant, Park Heights.

As of today, the exterior has shed its Shoney’s look. What do you think?
