I was always a Pee Wee's Pizza guy growing up in my San Leandro days. But after their fire, my sister took me to Porky's a couple of times. Great stuff. Looking forward to them opening!

My 90+ year-old mother-in-law lives in Washington Manor in San Leandro. Porky's Pizza take-out is always a treat during our visits. I look forward to Porky's Pleasanton opening as I live and work in Livermore - yea!
