Any reviews on Porkyland in Barrio Logan?

I have never been there. Where is it located and what are the specialties?
this might be too late but here goes. e.d. is right. porkyland makes good tortillas. their carnitas & carne asada aren't very good. the la jolla location is even worse (still good tortillas though).
if i were in barrio logan i'd go to el porvenir instead. they have excellent tortillas, carnitas, chile relleno. cash only & m-sa (hours seem a little flexible).

don't have the phone #-sorry!
Porkyland is very greasy and too salty. The tamales are decent. For good Carnitas try La Michoacana in the Farmers MArket Building on Imperial and 22nd. All they do is Carnitas and you get your choice of the cut, ribs, buche, leg, whatever you ask for. the beans are great too. You can buy by the pound and take home.
I prefer Los Quatros Milpas located down the street. They are only open for lunch, and they make great tortillas.
They are known for the bowl of rice, beans and tamale, or the rice beans and chorizo bowl.
Their hot sauce is very hot, be aware.
They do not offer guacamole.
Their menu is limited, but for this place, less is actually more.
