Apparently, This Tiny Polk Street Pizzeria Is Behind More Than 70 DoorDash Restaurants

Whether you want a breakfast burrito, falafel, or cheesecake, the restaurant at 1338 Polk Street will happily deliver

Lauren Saria is the editor of Eater SF and has been writing about food, drinks, and restaurants for more than a decade.

A single San Francisco restaurant has been operating under dozens of other names on third-party delivery app Doordash, local news outlet Hoodline reports. The restaurant in question, Fresco Pizza Shawarma, is located at 1338 Polk Street in an unremarkable storefront near the corner of Polk and Pine. The menu on the restaurant’s website offers pizzas, salads, calzones, hot sandwiches, burgers, pasta, and Mediterranean specialties such as shawarma and falafel.

According to an “investigation” by Reddit users and additional research done by Hoodline, the restaurant has also been selling all those items — and more — under different business names on Doordash. Searching the delivery app for dishes such as “breakfast burrito” might pull up a result for the restaurant Daydream Breakfast Burritos, which operates out of 1338 Polk Street. The same goes for a search for “meatballs,” which might point you toward ordering from Ma’s Meatballs, also located at 1338 Polk Street.

All in all, Hoodline reports “at least 70 different” restaurants have been operating out of the one San Francisco address. The outlet lists 72 business names, to be exact, including Sheeeeesh Kabab, Thursday Calzones, the Pasta Slut, Pizza Pilgrims, Fell For Falafels, and Alfredo’s Parmigiana House.

Old-school burger spot is back open
