I happen to be in the area since I just got done getting my car power window fixed nearby. I've never been to Shakey's before today but some friends of mine highly recommended it to me in the past. So I decided to stop by here for lunch today, and I was pleasantly surprised!! I ordered a garden veggie pan... More

It has been about 20 years since I was here last. The mojo's are still how I remember them. The pizza was excellent. Their sauce is sweeter than a normal pizza sauce but the pizza is exactly how I remember it. Wish I had one where I live. Great place! I love it.

Nice clean place, Great food and a great place to take you team to after a long day of games. Parents can have a few drinks and the kids can play in the arcade area. They have a nice pizza bar and salad bar. We will be back.

I love the buffet lunch as it has everything you need, pizza, chicken and mojo potatoes. Mind you, the pizza isn’t superior and is much better if you order a pizza on its own but then you won’t get the value of the buffet. I’ve been there countless times and the place needs to be refurbished now, but the food... More

Just visited this Shakey's while in CA last week. We live in CO now and they don't have them there, so I try to hit one while we are in the area. On our most recent trip, I took my two nieces and we had a really nice dinner. The staff were very friendly and even gave us a Monday... More

A longtime Riverside restaurant famous for their pizza, chicken and mojo potatoes. They have an excellent lunch buffet with salad sides and various pizzas and chicken.

Probably one of the last Shakeys around. Nothing has changed . O.K. for students or families with young kids. Rather dark and dingy. Pizza a beer is still adequate.
