Worth the wait. Call ahead to order your pizza, then go and wait in line. The deep dish spinach & mushroom pizza is the best! The pizza is ridiculously good. If you think you can finish this pizza, you'd be wrong. You'll be taking it home...

We're from the Chicago area, and really missed out kind of pizza when we moved to the Bay Area -- until we found Zachary's. We get the half-baked and finish cooking it at home -- it's great!

If you like Chicago style pizza and have never been here, make the trip, wait if you have to, and try it. It is on the College Ave in the Rockridge right next to the BART station. There is usually a crowd and you can call ahead because it takes 45 mins to make. You will not be able to... More

Zachary's is a great choice for pizza. The quality is high, the prices reasonable and the service friendly. The only problem can be the wait. I was there last weekend and we had a great meal. Their gluten free crust is good, and they have options for almost anyone.

Zachary's is the go-to place for a real treat, when pizza is the deal! Their spinach and mushroom deep dish pizza is super! We usually call in the order and pick it up to go. The restaurants (on Solano in Berkeley and on College Ave in Oakland) are both so very popular that they get backed up and are quite... More

If you like a big fat cheesy pie, then Zachary's is the place for you. The Solano Ave. store is my go-to lunch spot for a beer and a slice; sausage pizza is one of several that are always ready at lunchtime and the draft beers are all good. If you have time to wait, the spinach-and-mushroom pie is one... More

The place is crowded in the evening, you usually have to wait 20-30 min to be seated but it's worth it. Zachary's serves the best pizzas I ever eaten. Actually, their speciality is the "stuffed pizza" that is Chicago-style pizza looks like a pie, but I like the usual "thin" pizza more then stuffed one. Restaurant has a lot of... More

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.
