Get what they specialize in! The deep dish pizza is the best! One slice really is filling meal. Their menu is mostly just pizza, so go for that. Important: It's locally owned and operated. Go here. A lot.

I really wanted Chicago style pizza, and this was the place my buddy who lives in the Bay Area picked out to satisfy. And it did! We came in, put our names down for a table, ordered, and were seated 10 min later on a Friday evening. It took awhile for the pizza to come, but that's no surprise. The... More

Been here twice, had the Buffalo chicken deep dish. It's by far the best pizza we had, compared to the thin crust pizza at most venues in Europe and also to the usual type of pizza you can have in the US. The place is on the small side but you can pre order by phone in all their locations... More

The deep dish spinach mushroom pizza is the reason I will drive 34 miles to pick one up. I have tried the ones with meat but they pale in comparison to the spinach. The sauce is incredible. The price is high but worth it.

I went to Zachary's pizza restruant twice . Both times with my daughter going to school out there. Pizza a is great , I've had the deep dish mainly because it's her favorite, but I really want to try the Thin crust. The deep dish has a lot of tomatoes and the crest is awsome . The place is very...

This is the best deep dish pizza in the East bay. We always order take out. I prefer deep dish with extra pepperoni. I have also tried the chorizo pizza. It was delish!

I love Zachary's and have been getting their pizza to go for years. I prefer the thin crust and get it half baked so it doesn't dry out when you heat it up. Their sauce is excellent and their pepperoni is great. I'll leave it to someone from Chicago to sing the praises of their deep dish.

This location is always busy, but it's worth the wait. Our go-to fave is the spinach and mushroom deep dish, which is consistently delicious. The staff is professional and friendly, and the food is really tasty and fresh. What more could I ask for of a pizza joint?

I've never been to Chicago, but my guess is that even in Chicago, you'd be hard pressed to find better deep dish pizza. We've had 14 foreign exchange students over the years, and whenever they come back to visit, Zachary's is always first on the list of restaurants they want to revisit to re-visit. I've had their thin crust, too,... More

If you've not had Zachary's pizza, then describing it as a very deep pizza with a crunchy flakey crust and a stewed tomato-based sauce with delectable toppings won't convey the pure joy we get from eating here. It's unlike any other deep-dish pizza I know, and we've sampled pizza across the USA and Europe. The only downside is the half-hour... More
