“Best Stuffed Deep Dish Pizza in SD!”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

Hands down this is the best pizza in San Diego if you have to know how to order it...4 words... Stuffed Deep Dish Pizza... Not deep dish pizza, stuffed deep dish pizza.

Oh...and the Italian sandwiches are solid as well. Again you have to know how to order it... Italian beef with cheez whiz instead of provolone cheese. Add hot peppers.

“Ridiculously Good Pizza”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Lefty's serves great pizza with loads of good toppings (it's so hard to find a pizza joint w/ green olives on the menu!). The deep dish is literally about the size AND weight of a manhole cover. The thin crust is tasty too. Their other offerings, like burgers, aren't just afterthoughts but are done well too. The half order of delicious fries must take about a half dozen potatoes to make. Lefty's is great.

“The best Pizza in San Diego”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

I was at a Charity Event on Sunday June 22, 2014 at Petco Park for the Padre game and Lefty's cater the Pizza for the function. Just to die for on all the thin & crispy pizzas they baked for the charity. They have two locations, one in Mission Hills and one also in North Park if you want the best Pizza in town! I also hear they have great sandwiches too...... Yum!

“Great Local North Park Treat”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Here you have a pretty nice pizzeria in a growing area of North Park that is, as far as quick eats, a Top 5 in my walking distance list. This place shows off their Chicago and local pride with tons of wall coverings, memorabilia, and a number of their menu items! The staff is friendly and quick, and the menu has everything it needs, though I'm sure they would consider adding items if you ask enough, or at least make you anything they are capable of within reason of any pizzeria. The place is "OK" for a quick stop-in, but I highly recommend ordering over the phone whenever possible because they can get backed up at the drop of a hat. I also say this because the place is a bit small inside, and not much room to wait for 5-10 mins comfortably. Outside seating available, and lots more going on around the area! Have fun!

“Delicious!!!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

We had both the deep dish and the thin crust. The thin crust highlighted the toppings and was perfectly crunchy and wonderful. The Chicago style was tasty and the crust stood up to the the fresh toppings. I highly recommend.
