    These are so yummy! I too have a local pizza shop that sells them and I got tired of paying for them so I came in search of a recipe I could make at home and this fits the bill and tastes just as good! Thanks!

    My family enjoyed these potatoes. I think next time I make them I will try adding something to give them a little more kick, perhaps a little cayenne, just because I like things a little spicy not because this recipe is lacking in any way. Thank-you for posting it!

    These were very good. I was using my deep fryer to make chicken and wanted a side dish to do with it using the deep fryer. This fit the bill perfectly. Thank you

    All I have to say is... yum! My husband and I are both fans of Shakey's original Mojos, but don't live very close to a Shakey's anymore. To top it off, my kids and I are now on gluten-free diets, so we can't eat them at Shakey's anymore. I simply substituted my usual gluten-free flour blend for the flour and it turned out beautifully. My kids an husband can't stop raving!

    Cut into rounds these duplicate the Rojo potatoes served at the Shakey's chain. Our Shakey's closed more than a decade ago, and my family was stoked when I made these last night. They couldn't get enough. The only changes I made were cutting the potatoes into rounds and I added just a touch more garlic. They were wondermous!
