    Sounds yummy doesn't it?;)

    Would you order in Spanish and get the large pizza for free?

    Sorry no MP Poll, but would you?

    Why is it ridiculous? The founder is of Mexican descent and many of the stores are located in Hispanic neighborhoods.

    What is the point of such a promotion? No relevance to a pizzeria! This sends mixed messages to both the Hispanic community and the non Hispanic community.

    I think it is discriminatory against those who don't and/or can't eat meat. Why do people have to ruin pizza by adding useless toppings? If the slice can't stand on its own, then let it fall!

    What's the message?

    The message I see, is that this business owner wants to promote his pizza business to his largest consumer base (which happens to be primarily of hispanic descent).

    Or that learning a second language can be useful even when not traveling.

    Trust me, the Hispanic community very clearly understands Pizza Patron's messaging. Even most non-jingoistic, non-Hispanic customers in its trading areas understand its messaging.

    As a point of reference, Pizza Patron ousted hometown Pizza Hut as the official pizza provider at Dallas' American Airlines Center.

    anything with the name "Patron" in it, at a facility that sells large quantities of alcohol, will do well :)

    Seems like they hold a special place in your heart. I am very happy for them, and if ever near one I will give them a try.

    I'm indifferent. I tried it once when they opened a new location nearby. Fair pizza at a good price.

    Seems they don't have a location in the Bay Area. Maybe I can try them when I'm in Fresno later in the summer for my Park Inn stay :)

    They also take pesos as payment, so if you need to burn the extra cash from your crazy vacation in Mexico, it's a good place to do so. Although, will take some time, the pizzas are rather cheap for the size.
