Stopped by here a couple days ago for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The lunch buffet goes until 230 so we did that. For my wife, me and one soda it was less than $20. Can't beat it.. Next question was the food. They had about 5 different pizzas, spaghetti, garlic bread, and a salad bar. everything was really good.... More

The Shakey's Special is one of my favorites. This place cut corners to save money and charged $20 for a large. The MoJo's were frozen and tasted like it. Way over priced and they should loose the right to call it "Shakey's" !

Pretty scummy place, food was garbage, the "all you can eat' buffet had a limit on the salad bar. Only highlight was they kept the food fresh, and the price was cheap, you definitely get what you pay for.
