Can't count how many years I've been eating Zachary's pizza. Never had a bad pie, and frequently had an outstanding one. Good salads, reasonable selection of beer and wine. Great atmosphere, and the artwork on the walls will make you laugh. Do yourself a favor if you've never been there, and go. Who says the West Coast it doesn't make... More

Went here awhile ago upon a recommendation, didn't want to wait 30-40 minutes for their "famous" deep dish house special. Instead we ate an oversized slice of pizza and loved it. This time we waited and had the house special, big mistake. Knowing it was going to take a long time for pizza we had a salad, and that was... More

Went here and ordered both the deep dish and the regular pizza. The deep dish was awesome the thin crust very mediocre.The ordering process was rather in disorganized, but now that I know how it works it makes sense. In general I do recommend it .

To be honest, the best pizza I ever had in my life was in Montreal at some Mom & Pop joint that was so small, it didn'lt have a sign outside. With pizza like that, they didn't need a sign. The same is true about Zachary's. Pull the sign off the building and you would still have people coming from... More

Probably the best deep dish (Chicago style) Pizza I've ever had, plus they have a Vegan option for cheese - I go there every time I'm in town.

As a native Chicagoan (Uno and Duet), I'm familiar with good dep-dish pizza. Zachary's can hold its own again the Chicago places. They offer a tasty whole-wheat crust! Try the Mediterranean. Be prepared to wait to be seated -- many locals prefer to order to go. Since this isn't "diet" food, we try to limit our intake to once a... More

They make both regular and chicago deep dish pizza. I think both pizza's were good. The deep dish has lots of tomatoes/sauce. I like that but many don't. We were a group of 5 and I was the only one who didn't have a pile of tomatoes left on their plate. The wait time for deep dish is quite long... More

When in need of comfort pizza, Zachary's is the go to. Also great for non fancy birthday meals. Always tasty. The warm ambience, friendly servers, and quirky art doesn't hurt either.
