Every father's day have take my grown kids on a hike and then they treat me to Zachary's and draft beer.

Simply put, it's the best deep dish pizza anywhere. It's so good that we consider Zachary's a destination restaurant. Be sure to try their signature dish, spinach and mushroom with pesto, then you will be in heaven

Deep dish Chicago Pizza in the heart of Berkeley, CA - it was the real deal - very good. We did take away and got it half baked and baked the pizza at home. A large pizza served 6 people and all were happy!

Zachary's Chicago Pizza is the best pizza I've eaten outside of Chicago! I was born and raised in Chicago, and I consider myself an "expert" on Chicago-style pizza. My favorite pizzeria in the world is Eduardo's in Chicago's Hyde Park area. Zachary's is a very close second. What makes Zachary's so good? Simple: the very flavorful sauce (I always order... More

Please don't critize Zachary's because they serve deep dish pizza, that's who they are and they are amazing. If you want thin crust go to Lanesplitter. Just come prepared to get a salad or appetizer if you are hungry because you can't rush pizza this good.

Great deep dish pizza on the West Coast! Awesome free range chicken, spinach, mushroom, lots of health toppings! We get this to take home about 2 times a year, wish it was more! They do offer a "thin" version of their pizzas too! My 8yr old and nieces/nephews seem to like the "thin" more than the stuffed. But every adult... More

I only get deep dish pizza here, because, well, there isn't any point to trying anything else when the deep dish is this good. Doesn't even matter what type you get, it is flavorful, well balanced, full of goodies, and the basic crust and basic tomato sauce are to die for.

We have been eating Zachary's pizza for over 20 years and it doesn't disappoint! We have ordered both the deep dish and thin crust. Both are delicious and have excellent ingredients but the deep dish really stands out! The pizza is also always ready when estimated and the staff work hard and efficiently to serve the many customers as quickly... More

Ever since moving to California from Rhode Island almost twenty years ago, one of the things I've missed the most has been pizza. While many say it is all about the crust, I have had thin, thick and stuffed crust across the country - and for me, it is all about the sauce. Zachary's has the second best sauce I... More
