Bay Area Eats: Eddie and Sam's

On my lunch break today, I ventured once more into downtown, this time to grab some lunch at Eddie and Sam's. I've heard rave reviews, both via the blogosphere and word of mouth, and since pizza is a food I could eat everyday until the day I die, I had to try it out.

Eddie and Sam's specializes in New York-style pizza, and New York is a prominent theme in the restaurant's decor: the long wall on the right-hand side has pictures of the city, the Brooklyn Bridge, and other landmarks. The restaurant itself is long and narrow, but cozy--and also extremely crowded during the lunchtime rush.

My co-workers and I got the lunch special, two slices of cheese pizza and a soda for $5.99, a deal well worth the money. The pizza slices are HUGE, and I was stuffed by the time I finished eating. Eddie and Sam's also offers other types of pizza, such as white pizza and margherita pizza, as well as bread sticks and some delicious-looking buttery garlic knots (priced at 50 cents!).

I thought the pizza was delicious, if a little greasy (I had to dab some of it off before I ate it), and the prices were pretty reasonable. I can definitely see why Eddie and Sam's is popular, and am planning on going back to try a slice of one of the specialty pizzas as well as one of those garlic knots. Mmmmmm.


  1. I'll have to check this place out, thanks for the write-up!

  2. No problem! I definitely want to go back.
