I understand that Chicago style is not all that exciting for folks from the windy city, but for this region Zachary's is really great. I'm a carnivore, but I honestly have to say that the spinach and mushroom is hands down the best pie they have! Service is a bit slow because they make the pizzas on site and they... More

Zachary's on Solano Avenue in Berkeley makes the best gluten free pizza I have ever tasted. I recommend it highly. I've also heard that their regular pizza is very good too.

I love going to Zachary's. Their Spinach and Mushroom deep dish pizza is the best. Not really a pizza, more a very tasty and delicate quiche, with a delicious tomato sauce

Zachary's has two locations in Berkeley, namely, to the south on College Avenue and to the north on Solano Avenue. While both are in nice locations, I prefer the location on Solano Avenue. The Solano location is a little closer to the U.C. Berkeley campus, and to arrive there from a typical apartment inhabited by grad students, the interested party... More

Zachary's pizza is our family's favorite, especially the thin crust chicken and basil and the deep dish spinach and mushroom. The pizzas are always tasty, the crusts are always perfect, and the toppings/fillings always generous. We always get take out. Have never eaten there. Been getting Zachary's pizzas for 20+ years and have never been disappointed.

Any time we are in the Bay Area this is a "must stop" for us. I would agree with others that the best thing to do is to call your pizza in ahead as for the deep dish it takes about 45 minutes. This is a small place with not a lot of seating but the pizza is terrific! It... More

Zachary's is an extremely popular deep dish pizza place which can have long lines during lunch and dinner hours. You can eat inside, but the space is extremely small. It's much more popular to get it for takeout there by calling ahead. Also, check out the menu before you go. They are very creative with their offerings and you may... More

Normally I like New York brick oven style pizza but man this rocked the foundation of what I believe is good pizza. We got this stuffed chicken pizza never had stuffed pizza that's that good.

The regular pizzas are fine but really the star of Zachary's is the stuffed pizza. The chicken with basil or the sausage with peppers are both really good (and filling!)
