Waited 40+ minutes for a deep dish.
Ordered a few drinks then appetizers.
Totally worth the wait!
Patxi’s (pronounced ‘peh-cheese’) boasts four separate locations in SF alone and 12 total in both California and Colorado. I had thought my co-worker was making a joke when he pronounced it “Patchy’s”, but the waitress assured us that his pronunciation was great.
I’ve tried a lot of the appetizers here and a couple different pizzas. Of course the main attraction are the deep-dishes. They’re amazing, but require around 40 minutes to cook. If you’re starving beware of this excruciating wait, or you can order a few appetizers like we did. Every single one of which, was mouth-watering. It should be noted that there are also thin-crust pizzas, which arrive considerably faster.
We ordered a salad (not pictured), which was good, but wasn’t exciting. Though, if you want to blow your socks right off, I would suggest ordering the Artichoke Dip: two cheese, roasted red pepper, jalapeno, and plenty of miniature toasts for dipping. I’ve had it twice now and each time it really hit the spot.
Hats off for the Antipasti served here. I don’t usually splurge for cured meats, but it’s totally worth it. Take your mother, a date, or everyone and their dog. Just be sure to get them some Antipasti!
Finally, the pizza arrives. If I recall correctly, we ordered the “Favorite”, which consists of Zoe’s pepperoni, fresh sliced mushrooms, and black olives to top it all off. My hunger had been curbed quite a bit by the appetizers, but that didn’t stop me from very quickly and ravenously devouring every bite of this delicious pie.
