Portnoy's mannerisms and sayings have become iconic in pop culture, especially the line, "One bite, everybody knows the rules," which he says prior to taking a bite, followed by several more bites of the pizza.

"It looks good, but what are we doing?" Portnoy said as he opened the pizza box, presumably reflecting on the hours of driving he's done for his ongoing New England pizza tour. "Is it two hours good?"

Passersby said hello and took pictures as Portnoy took the "one bite."

"The owner is super excited to see me. Let's hope this lives up to the hype," Portnoy said.
