Shakey's Pizza has got the best MOJOs.

You try it!

    I won't argue with you, but it's next to impossible for me to eat at a Shakey's these days. There used to be Shakey's up and down the Central Valley (CA), but the closest one to me is in Oroville. The Mojo potatoes are good, but not good enough for me to drive 2 hours to get 'em!

      Yes, the Shakey's Mojo Potatoes are quite good.

      But this begs the question ... Does anyone else even make mojo potatoes a la Shakeys?

          Per their website:

          "MOJO® POTATOES

          A Shakey's exclusive! Sliced potatoes, lightly battered & fried to a golden brown"

          Picture here:

            Thinly cut potato wedges deep fried to perfection!

            You gotta try it!

            Let me know what you think...

          I am shocked to learn that Shakey's Pizza even still exists! Last one I was in was in San Angelo, TX circa 1979.

            It's a really GOOD thing that the nearest Bunch-o-lunch is 45 minutes away from me. ;o]]]]
