This pizza is always delicious.They only make 1 type of pizza per day and it's always vegetarian but don't let that stop you!

The mushroom pizza was pretty amazing but I stood in line for about 35 minutes! Was it worth it? Yep. Even my fussy kids enjoyed the pizza. Equally fresh and tastey was the daily salad. Great toppings with a zesty dressing. We took the pizza to go to a nearby park. Perfect picnic food.

They have managed to make ordering as simple as possible. You have your choice of 1 type of pizza and 1 type of salad. The pizza was very good the salad was just fare. Would have given it a 5 if it was not so loud. We could not stay in the restaurant. The music literally drove us out of... More

great cheese picked for the daily pie. No selection other than slice, half, or whole. Always crowded. These guys taught us to make crust. Very generous with pizza knowledge, including a book.

Oh man!! What a great place this is. Live jazz and blues while you eat one of the best pizza on the east bay. This place is a must. There's only one type of pizza per day but believe me it is totally worth it as the ingridients are fresh and the combinations they come up with are amazing.

Made the trip from downtown Oakland after reading other reviews. The line was long yet moved quickly, the ambiance was lively, the blues music was electric and the pizza and salad were outstanding. If you're looking for variety you won't find it here as they only seemed to served two varieties of pizza - pizza of the day and cheese.... More

Only one pizza on the menu each day? Line out the door for days? People sitting eating on the median strip in the middle of traffic? Yes, Cheese Board deserves all that fuss. Every pizza is delectable in its own way and there isn't a bad one in the lot. Just go, eat, enjoy.
