Leanne's parents came from New York in 1962. On there way to California for vacation they broke down in Albuquerque. Being stuck in the city for a few days it led to weeks and from weeks it led to being in a wonderful climate with great friendly people. Within a month Lucky's Pizza was opened for business in October 1962.
As you can guess they never left.
Another successful business in Cedar Crest , Sandia Frontier Town and Mario's Pizza was established. Seven children later and many years of hard work Mario and Catherine diGesu are now retired and Santos and Leanne continue her dads restaurant legacy.
Santos and Leanne both graduated from Moriarty High School in 1989. High school sweet hearts married in 1991 and in 1997 took over Steer Inn Barbecue. Changed the name to Shorty's because that was Santos nick name growing up. We now have two great kids Sierra and Seth who are a huge asset to our business... They will hug you and sit and have lunch with you when you come in....
Where can you go eat and get hugs at the same time, customers love them and have watched them grow.
