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.

I have been standing in line to pick up a half baked pizza since the beginning and I still love it every time. I no longer live in the area, but my son does and he's picked up the tradition, (although he buys it fully cooked). When I can, I pick up a half-baked and drive it home to Santa... More

They only serve hot, out of the oven perfect pizza. Every day is different, with a unique combination of vegetarian ingredients. The overall taste is so spectacular, meat eaters.would never miss not having meat on top. The salads are inspired as well. Fun, live music. Don't forget to consider using the spicey pesto sauce in the squeeze bottle! The cheese... More

My girlfriend and I were on our way to a crepe place for a very late breakfast when we spotted this huge line outside a store. I wasn't all that enthusiastic about standing in a long line for pizza, but it turns out they only make one type of pizza a day, so you only have to tell them how... More

They do pizza right! I arrived to a line out the door on a Friday night and was afraid I wouldn't have a place to sit. Community seating with spots turning quickly eased my concerns. I enjoyed a couple of slices, live music and a little red wine with some very welcoming locals. The pizza was delicious and the green... More

Great selection of cheeses and the best thin crust pizza ever! Enjoy a slice and live music on a sunny day in Berkeley. The best!

Unique Berkeley experience...the pizza is one kind each day (check on line for week's offerings); excellent cornmeal, thin crust. All veggie. Great combos. Jazz music bands playing inside; long line moves fast. Half bakes available for take home next door at Cheese Board. Do the Berkeley experience: Sunny day, grab slices or a pie and sit on the grass in... More
