We suggest the pizza…
All our pizzas are served with your choice of wheat or white crust. Hardly anybody orders the wheat, but everybody should. We normally make it medium thickness, but you can have it extra thick or extra thin if you like.
We deliver. Here’s a Map.
We also have a Gluten-Free option.

Small / Medium / Large
8″ / 12″ / 16″
A Large is Not A Large
Our large is 16″ in diameter (201 sq in), always has been. Lots of other nice joints have a 14″ (154 sq in) they call “large”. They call a 16″ (if they have one) Extra Large.
A 16″ has almost a third more area than a 14″. So, our “Large ” is about a third larger that their “Large.” It’s all semantics, but still…a large is an extra large is not a large. So know that. We do.
ABC News and Good Morning America called this the best college eats in the nation in their Best Bitesd College Edition. We’re okay with that.
Red Onions, Pepperoni, Canadian Bacon, Fresh Mushrooms, Black Olives, Green Peppers, Italian Sausage, and Lean Ground Beef.
This is a huge amount of food. Forks strongly recommended; the toppings all fall off. We sometimes hear “What? Thirty clams for one pizza???” But consider this: the 16” Masterpiece has a POUND of meat (after cooking) a POUND of vegetables, and is a full meal for four, maybe five. The whole thing weighs about 5 pounds! You pay for what you get.
The Pizza Lovers’ Passion
(Price depends on toppings)
Order any five toppings of your choice, you only pay for four.
Double Cheese, Red Onions, Fresh Mushrooms, Black Olives, and Green Peppers. Feel free to substitute any of the other toppings. It’s your money. (Order this. It’s good for you.)
The Meat Lover’s
This thing has well over a POUND of meat on the large one… after cooking. Pepperoni, Canadian Bacon, Ground Beef, Italian Sausage, and Breakfast Bacon. Don’t ask about nutritional information on this one. Just… don’t.
Brought to you by the letter “P”. This is one that a whole bunch of Shake’s emps like, but we don’t know why. Must have been the Eighties. Pepper Cheese, Peperoni, Green Peppers, Jalapenos, and Banana Peppers.
Named in honor of our heart-healthy (former) Mayor, Darwin Hindman, and all that he has done for Columbia. Red Onions, Green Peppers, Artichoke Hearties, Turkey, and Tomatoes. (Order this, it’s good for you)
Build Your Own
Start with a good ol’ cheese pizza. Many say that you should judge a pizza joint by its plain cheese pizza. We agree. A very economical choice and everybody likes it.

All our salads make a nice side, or a light meal.
Ollie’s Salad – $5.49
Spinach, red onions, glazed walnuts, cranberries, mandarin oranges, and Gorgonzola cheese, with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing
Named in honor of the owner’s dog, Ollie. It’s the newest, fruitiest addition to our salad family. But it’s been around since 2010, so it’s not new, just the new-EST.
Louie’s Salad – $5.49
Spinach, sliced almonds, hearts of palm, shredded Parmesan cheese, croutons and a secret, delicious dressing
Named in honor of one of the manager’s dogs, Louie. He doesn’t like the salad (He’s a dog. Dogs don’t eat salad. They eat rabbits. If they can catch them. Otherwise, it’s the same dog chow over and over and over…) But his owner likes him, as well as the salad. Don’t ask us what a heart of palm is. All we’ll say is that it’s kind of like a Vienna Sausage, but it’s a vegetable.
Vegetarian Salad – $5.29
Iceberg-Romaine lettuce blend, red onions, mushrooms, black olives, green peppers, cheddar cheese, broccoli, and tomato
Meats and Cheeses – $5.29

Iceberg-Romaine lettuce blend, red onions, cheddar cheese, and tomato
A nice simple dinner salad if that’s all you want, but boy it’s just that. Simple.
Choice of T. Marzetti’s dressings with the Vegetarian, Meats and Cheeses, and Dinner Salads
(The Louie’s and Ollie’s salads already have a dressing. We’ll change it if you want, but trust us, it’s good the way it is.)
Dressings (except the Ollie’s and Louie’s) are always on the side in a packet.
Extra Dressing Packets - $0.46 – It ain’t the cheap stuff, and it ain’t free. We make like maybe four cents on each packet.

Cheese Garlic Bread
Full Order (10 Slices, Serves 5-8) $12.49
Half Order (5 Slices, Serves 2-4) $6.49
Made with real butter. A great appetizer. French bread with garlic butter and our provolone pizza cheese. Lovingly sliced and buttered by hand. Unless the guy doing it is having a bad day, in which case it’s likingly sliced and buttered by hand.
We have lots of drink options; the best is our good ol’ 22-ounce tumbler. Fill it up with soda (Coke and Pepsi products), tea, lemonade, etc. and then take the cup home!
Taking it to go? Try 20-ounce or 2-liter bottles; again, Coke and Pepsi products.
We also stock a wide variety of beers (tap, bottle, import, domestic, micro, etc.) and wine. Our locations in The District and out South also offer a full bar.
