Pee Wee's is now Papa John's

Pee Wee's Pizza on E. 14th Street has been replaced by Papa John's, a chain of more than 3,000 restaurants based in Louisville, Kentucky.

Pee Wee's Pizza had been serving pizza for more than 50 years when it burned down in September 2006. A fundraiser was held weeks later at Tommy Ts to raise money for the owners to rebuild since the property was not insured. For a time, it appeared that the owners were rebuilding.

Papa John's is open every day from 11am to 9:30pm and is located at 2198 E. 14th Street in San Leandro.

I'd been going to Pee Wee's since the 1950s. My kids grew up eating pizza at Pee Wee's and now it is closed and gone forever. Papa John's, and its chain pizza, can't hold a candle to Pee Wee's. It;s a sad date.
