Location of old Shakey's Pizza in College Park; possibly now 7-Eleven?

There used to be a Shakey's Pizza which was listed in the display ads in the Yellow Pages phone book as "College Park" and is not the same one as the Shakey's on Riggs Road in Langely Park (now housing several stores including a Three Brothers Pizza). It was one of the first to close in the area, somewhere around 1984 to 1987. Had several dates there with a lovely young lady.

I only found one person who had any recollection of that location. She said it was in the triangle formed by University Blvd, Greenbelt Avenue, and Rhode Island Avenue. There is a 7-Eleven there now. Google and Bing maps are not conclusive. Just about all converted Shakeys's locations are recognizable from aerial views. However, the 7-Eleven store there does not have the proper length-to-width ratio.

Can anyone confirm the location of the College Park restaurant? It had a lot of patronage from UMD students.
