Best Pizza

Best pizza I have ever had. It's a wait but worth the wait. When in Berkeley go get yourself a slice. When can you have a piece of pizza that is not greasy, this is it.

As the years go by much changes, but not the quality of Zachary's pizza. In classic Berkeley fashion, it is an employee owned establishment with great service and pizza that I dream about then I'm not there. Nuff said.

I have to admit that I've always wanted to visit Zachary's despite not being a huge pizza fan. So when I was visiting Berkley I made a point to check it out. The place has a cool vibe with fun art work and they manage the crowd of patrons nicely allowing us to order our pizza while we wait for... More

I love their deep dish pizzas! We always get the special mushroom/spinach and chicken/basil. My daughter also likes their thin crust artichoke one (Mediterranean) but I prefer the deep dishes. We usually do take out. Small dining area and quite loud and lively at all times.

My third time here. Girlfriend turned me onto it. Spinach mushroom the first two times, Zach ' s Special yesterday. Both deep-dish, substitute spinach for sausage and they're the same. GREAT DEEP DISH! Worth the wait, 30-40 min. for the deep dish. Hip courteous staff. Noisy, one big dining room atmosphere (fine for pizza), family-style. The Caesar salad is to... More

The pizzas are really really good. The family had 4 different types - no surprise the doggy bag that went home was heavy. Staff was nice and friendly but fairly loaded so service ended up being below expected levels - but still good enough.

I used to live in Chicago, and I love Zachary's. Is it authentic? Well, it's close enough and much cheaper than a plane ticket! If you are a Giordano's kinda person, Zachary's is the one for you. If you prefer Gino's crust, then get thee to Little Star Pizza.

I recently went with friends to this joint and if you like deep dish, this is the place. I personally hate deep dish and was not converted to it after this visit. But my friends gave it high marks. I personally like a thinner less drenched style but that is my problem. As deep dish goes this is good. Well... More

Order ahead because stuffed pizzas take about 30 min. Staff is nice and the pizza is ALWAYS delicious!

"Half Baked" is a great way to have your pizza hot and ready when you're ready for it. This pizza was very heavy when I picked it up and it is literally "half baked" so when you get it home, you pop it in the over for bit and it is amazingly delicious.
