From the streets of Sacramento to the New Town Plaza, Shakey’s Pizza is all about family dining, especially for kids. Dough is made fresh daily to create super long pizzas to share, plus there’s fried chicken, pasta and salads on the menu. Dixieland music plays daily to add to the fun filled atmosphere.
