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.

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
