Victor's Pizzeria on Polk (SF)

Sunday I grabbed a quick slice here for lunch before heading out of town. While it's not far from me, this was my first try out, though I've walked past many, many times.

The crust is quite thin, not as yeasty in flavor as Za's, but I liked the texture more. Singed and crisp on the bottom, then chewy and softer but not doughy as you bite through it. The edges were worth eating. Nice zesty sauce, unsweetened, with lots of dried oregano. Well-modulated amount of cheese, not too much. At $2.50, plus 50¢ for the pepperoni (6 slices), the serving size seems a little small compared to Arinell, but here you get to sit down in reltive comfort with table service. The dining area looks like it hasn't been touched since the '50s --- formica, vinyl, linoleum, and an overhead arbor with plastic grape clusters and vines. Service was congenial, water was brought to me with extra napkins, and my server checked back to see if I wanted anything else.

Next time I'll ask for my slice to be crisper on the bottom. What do'hounds think about this place and what else do you recommend?
