“Late night Pizza slices...mmmmm”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

This place is open late...really late. There is always a small line about 10 minutes. The Slices are squares, with a beautiful crust that is crispy and a little flaky. The sauce and toppings are all really good quality. I always go late at night and there are a lot of fellow night owls following suit. Ive had some great conversations here. The neon sign was broken the last time I was there so if youve never been, its off Columbus and Vallejo.

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I love the vibe and the garage feel of the place.The pizza smelled so good from the street that we had to in and explore. I loved the interior walls and ceiling which are corragated metal, covered with stickers. They only have a few different kinds of pizza, but each one is so tasty. I had the pesto vegetarian.

“Good because they are open late and serve cheap take-out slices”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

One of the problems with San Francisco eateries is they are nearly all closed down by 10pm. After 12am forget it, you'll have to see if you can get a seat at Zimms (which is unlikely).

Golden Boy fills this void and is quick and convenient, serving decent thick-style square pan pizza by the slice. You can check out the variety in the display window and grab a good sized slice and soda for under 10.

If you aren't driving a cab, or in the need of quick cheap grub so you can return to a night of heavy drinking, there are dozens of better choices in the area. For great sit down or regular hour take-out head around the corner to Tony's.

“Great to stop in for slice”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Found them while cruising through North Beach, great to rest up and recharge. Slices are thick and the beers are cold. 2 thumbs up!

“Good Pizza”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We went here during our trip for a late lunch just sat at the counter had a couple draft beers and a couple slices of pizza.
The pizza was good thick sicilian style squares.
The server behind the counter was nice place is small and it was pretty busy but not horrible. I hear it can be pretty bad after the bars close.
