My friend took me here for pizza once as I had never tried this spot before. They serve thick-crust pizzas with a good layer of toppings. I had some sort of vegetable combo, and the pizza itself was really good, but I must admit not the best, maybe because I prefer thinner-crust pizzas. The crust itself was real thick and a bit oily, but the atmosphere of the place was unique - many youngsters (may be college students?) from around the area frequent this spot. I think if I were in the area I would come in here again..

Pros: pizza and service

Cons: none

I've waited in line outside of this place for ages after the North Beach bars close. It's worth it every time. Most pizza places in North Beach are gimmicky tourist traps -- not this one. If you're out at night and you know you'll want a slice, try to leave before last call or you'll have to wait.

Pros: Service and food are great

Cons: don't try to parkon the weekend!

Golden Boy pizza is the place to go! They have a great variety of pan pizzas that just hit the spot. Each slice is pretty reasonably priced, plus I believe they have a combo special. This is probably the only pizza I would eat in North Beach!

Cons: parking but who cares

.

They do have the best pizza in town, but their service is really slow (the staff don't really care there's a long line waiting and just take their time, it's either they don't care or they're stoned). But I would still put up with the bad service for a good slice!

Great little place to grab a slice of pizza (or 3) alone, or after having drinks in Borth Beach (although they close before 2).

I love, love, LOVE this pizza. Anytime someone comes to S.F. to visit me I bring them here and they end up loving it as much as I do.

I'm all about the sauce, and this place does it right. The cheese and teh combo are my favorites! Also, I don't know what people mean about the rude service, I have NEVER once had rude service! Everyone who works there seems really nice and attentive.

I'ved lived in north beach all my life, but now I've moved out of the area and I miss golden boy pizza. Its unique and great. Some of the best pizza I've had. I agree with some other reviews that the service isn't excellent but the pizza does make up for it.

I work in North Beach and refuse to eat at Golden Boy due to poor service and just plain old RUDENESS. If the service at a pizza joint isn't friendly the least it can be is prompt and this place is lacking in both departments...They should can the rude employees...they make me gag on my mozzarella!

Went to 11th Annual North Beach Jazz Fest in Wash. Square Park on Sunday. Shows ended at 7pm. Looked forward to GB's yummy pizza all day. Waited in line for over 30 minutes with many other people. Waiting after bar close is tradition, but was surprised they weren't prepared. Finally some pizzas come out and we get to the cashier with the last two pepperoni pieces left and order them. Right then, the guy working there took those last two pieces, boxed them up and stashed them away. The girl said, "oh, I guess you can't have those", and we were NOT happy. They "didn't know" when the next one would come out. So wrong. You can't steal someone's pizza in front of them for your friends! He rather nastily gave us a choice of two cheese or clam (yuck) for free, but it didn't make up for the rudeness.

It can't be beat, it's the best pizza this side of Zachary's (in the E.Bay).

It's just great pizza by all accounts, and I always take visitors and out-of-towners there. The fact that it's cheap and has a cool atmosphere is icing on the cake.

Pros: VERY tasty pizza, eat for cheap, casual atmosphere

.

hardly the best pizza in town. I like the convenience of being able to buy in slices, and get it in my hands in merely minutes. It lacks the consisntent crust on a good pizza. Another thing, the paper they use to wrap the pizza for take-out sticks to the topping. Could be advised to use a better paper quality. The people that work there are great, fast service and friendly.

Golden Boy is, hands down, my favorite spot in SF. Whether it's post-happy hour (it's a short stroll from Columbus Cafe) or a random treat, Golden Boy never ceases to satisfy that insatiable 'za craving that can strike at any moment. A relaxed atmosphere, cheap eats, friendly service, beers on tap... you really can't beat an experience at the 'Boy. Plus, I mean... it tastes SO good.

One of my favorite places to stop on expeditions to City Lights. If you're lucky, one of the green- or orange-haired grrls working behind the counter may even smile to you.

Sit at the bar, order a hot slice and devour with a frosty mug of rootbeer. You will never be happier. Place is quaint and employees are cool. Best of all it's expensive. They'll also sell you a sheet of Pizza if a slice isn't enough.

Message from Golden Boy Pizza

Golden Boy Pizza features a few tables, a counter and pizza, and this is all you will find here. Italian-speaking locals mix with people from all over who come here for slices or whole pies made with focaccia dough, thick and dripping with olive oil that makes a napkin required with every bite. The toppings are piled just as thick and are similarly, no frills. No goat cheese here, but you will find the classics such as pepperoni, mushrooms and even pesto!
