Overview:Sherwood “Shakey” Johnson loved ragtime music. He dreamed about having a place where his family and friends could get together, share some pizza and beer while listening - and often singing along – to favorite ragtime standards. So back in 1954 he scraped together his savings and opened the first Shakey’s Pizza Parlor & Ye Public House® at the corner of 57th and J Street in Sacramento CA. There was nothing like it. People came from all over to enjoy the original thin crust pizza, ice cold beer on tap and most of all, the fun, family friendly atmosphere.
While times have changed, Shakey Johnson’s dream is still alive and well today at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor®. For generations people have been coming to Shakey’s® to share good food and good times with family and friends. Walk into any Shakey’s Pizza Parlor® today and you’ll find grandparents, parents and their children sitting around a family-size table sharing a meal, swapping stories, and reconnecting over Shakey’s® famous Pizza, Mojo® potatoes and crispy chicken. Dad’s enjoying a cold beer as he watches his favorite team take the play-offs on one of many flat screen TVs; mom enjoys a bit of “me time” while grandma and grandpa watch on as the kids entertain themselves in Shakey’s® dedicated fun zone. Good times indeed – and always a good value.
Shakey’s® is an American classic. We’ve perfected the art of uniting family and friends around a meal – something of a lost art in this fast paced, time-starved world.
