The new Porky's is across the street from Bombay 2 Deli.
This strikes me as slightly ironic - meat on one side, all-vegetarian food on the other. But maybe now I can convince my friend, Mr. Must Eat MEAT, to try Bombay 2 Deli if I let him get a burger for dessert.

Don't know all the issues so I'm not on anyone's side but do you all know about this?
I know some people in this neighborhood who have really strong feelings about porky's opening in this neighborhood. I'm actually a fan of the food and though I haven't been to the saint paul one in a while I would go if I had a hankerin'...Especially for the chocolate chip cookies!..and the burgers and the onion rings...
We stopped there this weekend after learning the hard way that Uncle Franky's is closed on Sundays.
There were 4 other patrons there. One lady was eating fried chicken, the other three gentlemen present ordered burgers.
The "award winning" pork sandwich was dry and lacked flavor.
The onion rings were big, heavily battered, and cooked to an almost burned crisp.
The buffalo chicken sandwich was drenched in buffalo sauce - a plus for me, but the sandwich was unremarkable aside from the sauce.
The chocolate shake was thick and yummy.
