When I was a kid (in the '70s) nothing could match the thrill of going to Shakey’s. The atmosphere was definitely kid-oriented with the player piano and the guys in straw hats and so on, but the pizza was really good. Well, that’s how I remember it anyway. Shakey’s fell on hard times in the '80s and all the restaurants in MN closed. I went to one in California in 1997 and it wasn’t the same place at all. Not only was the atmosphere completely different, but the pizza was nowhere near as good as I remembered.
Does anyone else remember the Shakey’s of old with the affection I do?
