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

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!

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!

I made these one night and was super surprised at how good they were and how they really were simliar to the kind you buy at the deli counter. They took a little longer to make but they were so good! I made to many and then put them in a container. I micrwaved them the next day and they were not as crispy but STILL delicious. Thanks!

These are very good potato wedges. They remind me of some sold at convenience stores, but with a better flavor. We used tiny Klondike Rose (red skinned yellow) potatoes and added a bit of onion powder to the mix. These were a great side with our meatloaf (along with some steamed broccoli). I imagine that they would reheat well on a baking stone, too.

Here in CA, there's a pizza chain called Shakey's and they serve Mojo potatoes. They used to be all over the place, but most of the ones in Nor Cal have closed. Anyways, this was my favorite menu item (besides the pizza). I used to go and just get an order of Mojo potatoes and eat them for dinner! Anyways, this recipe tasted just like it! Instead of cutting in wedges, I sliced the potato into 1/4" rounds (like Shakey's) and fried them for 3-5 minutes. Yummy! This is food from my childhood and a definite comfort food. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe Sasha!

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!
