Visited here at suggestion of a young nephew. My husband and I agreed that it was the best pan-style pizza we've had. It is a whole in the wall with loudish music playing but the pizza is totally worth it. The young woman working the counter was lovely to locals and tourists who did not know the drill. Highly recommend.

Don't let the place fool you, this place was recommended by a local, you could walk by it and think just another pizza place. But the taste is great. Generous toppings and delicious. Strongly recommend it.

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.

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.

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.
