A new Shakeys Pizza Parlor opened near our house. It’s the first one I’ve been to since growing up in Peoria. We used to go this Shakeys on University in Peoria. It even had a player piano and you could pick the songs it played. Nothing but fond childhood memories.
So you can imagine my excitement to have a new Shakeys nearby. The excitement had greatly dissipated during the 50 minutes it took to get two mini pizzas. The whole time I kept thinking about this article in USA Today that talked about the new ovens Papa John’s is installing that can bake a pizza in four minutes. Shakeys must have running low on coal.
