Adventure San Francisco: Golden Boy Pizza, a Gold Medal Find

Although there's a wealth of food options for San Francisco visitors, it often feels like your bank account should match the wealth. By the end of a vacation, eating in San Fran can make a real dent in your pocket book. Although we always bookend our visits with a couple of nice dining experiences, it's important to incorporate some relaxed culinary adventures into any family vacation. The answer when visiting the Golden City? Golden Boy Pizza in San Francisco’s North Beach.

This pizza joint, established in the 70s, is untouched by time. It remains the perfect place to pull up a stool, drink an ice cold beer, and grab a slice (or two) of the perfect Sicilian pizza, baked warm and fresh right in front of you. The simple, no-nonsense menu offers slices of the classic pepperoni or sausage, a pesto veggie, or a garlic clam, each perfect in its own way.

The first time we visited San Fran, our dear friends tipped us off to this hole-in-the-wall gem that's so incredibly easy to miss. Now it's Mod City Mom's turn to tip you off: Golden Boy is cheap, comfortable, and offers up a little piece of heaven on a plate every time. Don't miss it! Details:

About Mod City Mom

After becoming mothers, sisters Sarah Romine and Leah Weyandt wanted to marry the activities and interests that they experienced before motherhood with their new found lives with children. This was not always an easy task—traveling to obscure places, shopping at off-beat boutiques, and sipping lazy-afternoon cocktails doesn't always fit neatly with parenthood. Stemming from their frustration, they meticulously searched, and continue to search, for activities, establishments, and entertainment that they take pleasure in and their families benefit from. The result? Mod City Mom.

About Sarah

Sarah is a passionate cook, fashionista, writer, actor, and mother. Like all actors, she ended up working at many-a-restaurant to make ends meet and shopping at countless bargain boutiques to maintain her sense of personal style. Her culinary journey, love affair with fashion, and desire to remain true to herself after becoming a mother are the inspirations for this site. Sarah lives with her husband and two sons in Chicago.

About Leah

A polymath wannabe, Leah loves books, films, music, cooking, and travel.
