Pizza Place
$$
“The best pizza in San Francisco! Pro Tip: You can join the waitlist online to reduce your wait time by using Yelp. I recommend adding yourself to the waitlist about 30 minutes before you'd like to dine, and an 60 minutes ahead of time on Friday and Saturday nights.”

Breakfast Spot

“Got to start lining up at 7:30 otherwise you will have to wait 90 minutes. Is it worth it? Depends on how hungry you get while waiting in line for 90 minutes. At that point you talk yourself into thinking its worth it otherwise you will feel like a fool.”

New American Restaurant

“A classic for brunch or dinner - and no need to wait! Park Tavern accepts reservations in advance and also does pretty well at accepting walk-ins as well. A little bit pricier, but worth it for the tasty food and lack of wait.”
