Pizza? Pizza?



Does anyone know where this pizzeria is/was located? Delcore seems to be very uncommon last name. A little over 100 people have that surname nation wide. The photo is from the 1950's.

Thanks to Kurt McCrary for solving an almost decade old mystery! Delcore Pizzeria was located at 14661 Fenkell in Detroit, Michigan. The pizzeria started in the early 1950’s and by 1959 was known as Leone’s Pizzeria. Later the building became a branch of Manufacturers National Bank. The building still stands but now appears to be a strip mall.

Peteski - Could be!

Chris - Will do!

Anonymous - I saw that - it appears to be the only occurrence of "delcore" + "pizzeria" on the entire Internet! I'm tempted to call!
