Del Popolo

Del Popolo is a food truck here in San Francisco. We greeted it with open arms at one of the Off the Grid events, where the food trucks line up and charge extra to drunken patrons. We walked up, with no line to be seen. We waited for the women in the purple jacket shown to help us... and we waited. She looked at myself and Handsome, who is you dont know is 6'8" and hard to miss and went back it.. staring at her shoes? She hollard a name, and no one came forward. So she looked around, pointed at a gentleman and said "You had a combo right? here, take this one, Im tired of waitin" and went back to... staring at her shoes? the chefs were working away. A woman came up and said she heard her name, and the gal in purple said "Your to late, itll be 10 minutes" and still hadnt even said hi to us. I said to handsome very loudly "Well their to busy for us, should we look for something else?" When she turned to us saying "What do you want?" To order pizza. But handsome did the order knowing i was about ready to slap her, We stood by the truck while she managed to skip around the line because she didnt want to wait... and finally got our pizza.

We got the $14 combo, then added the $2 pork salami.2 of which blew off int he wind and across the grass almost immediately. BUT, this was a damned good pizza.

Del Popolo chefs know what their doing. the crust is fluffy and crisp, the meats are flavorful and fresh, real mozzarella and basil. I dont know if it was $16 worth of pizza as you can see based on Handsomes thumb there it was pretty small, but very tasty. Also the Cashier was one of the worst cashiers I have seen in a long time. shame on you maam, it wasnt even busy. I have worked retail and customer service for 14+ years and even if your job sucks you dont take it out on people who are trying to give you money.
