Smack dab in the middle of North Beach sits one of the best pizza slice places in the whole city. Nestled amongst the Italian neighborhood restaurants is local favorite Golden Boy Pizza.
It’s a family-run joint, and their focaccia crust pizza has been one of my go-to spots for more than a decade. They only serve an assortment of six slices, but they each provide satisfaction to the hungry patrons.
Try the non-traditional Clam, Garlic, parsley and red sauce slice. Or go mainstream with a piece of cheese. Any way you slice it, Golden Boy is an oasis of cheap, but delicious eats. The place is often hopping with a line out the door and a counter full of late night neighborhood revelers looking to grab a quick bite between beers at the local bars.
You may also enjoy a slice of veggie with pesto, sausage or pepperoni. Their selection of wine, beers on tap paired with a solid music selection and friendly service is a surefire solution to a growling stomach and late night munchies.
