We’re lucky to have Sancho’s Taqueria down the hill from us, especially since several places came and quickly went under at the tiny shopping center, while Sancho’s stayed strong. A few weeks ago, workers began fixing up a little corner shop that had been used as a small office previously, leaving me to expect another office would be taking its place. However, my low expectations were blown when the Speederia Pizzeria sign went up.
The place has been open for a little over a month and we’ve been there four or five times. The Redwood City location is much like the one is San Carlos, but smaller. We’ve ordered an entire pizza at times, but what makes Speederia great is that a variety of pizzas are always available to be sold by the slice. Which means, if one kid only likes cheese, another only pepperoni, your husband likes a heavy meat pizza, and you want something with mushrooms, everyone gets what they want without ordering multiple pizzas or picking off the toppings at home. This is fabulous because my son has come to expect that every slice of pizza could be doctored at home to remove anything he didn’t want to eat the the moment, which has even included the cheese.
Speederia is cash only, and we’ve already had one visit where we bought as much as we could afford with the few dollars on hand. A cheese slice is $2.50, while other varieties are $3. Also, it’s only open for dinner (4 p.m. to 9 p.m.), but lunch service is expected to be added in the future.
