The best pizzas I have ever had!

I usually order take out, it is so busy to eat in due to it's popularity. One can also order have baked, to finish at home ir freeze and have another night. My favorite is the pestoDeep dish with mushrooms, despite being an avowed carnivore it totally satisfies without any meat. Try Zach's and... read more

I have lived in Oakland since 1989 and Zachary's on College Ave has been a family favorite the entire time. I often get half-baked pies to go. Works well to call in a half baked order for pick up when returning to the Bay Area at the end of a long weekend. I recently took two pies and a spinach... More

This is my second review of Zachary's pizza because we just found out " It has Vegan options." I hadn't been there the last few times I visited my daughter until now . She was in heaven with her vegan pizza ...... Yes Virginia there is a Santa Clause !

Best deep dish in the area! There are a few close second contenders, but if you want to take a quick trip from Oakland to Chicago...this is the place. It stays pretty busy so plan ahead. Love the ingredients and execution.

Our children and grandkids live here, so we come here often when we visit. We alway eat the same pie (pepperoni) and it is always great. I wish we could get this kind of pizza in our hometown.

Zachary's has the greatest Caesar Salad around, and believe me I've tried at many places. You can even purchase the dressing to take home. I ate a caesar salad with a white pizza. My husband had a spring salad with white pizza, and that was also delicious. Place is small and crowded. You can eat there or take to go.... More

This place has been a steady referral from Cal Alumni friends for years, so since we had to return our son to school following the holidays, we stopped in. I liked the thick cheesy crust and the chunky tomato sauce. My son thought it was the best pizza he ever had. The large pizza was big enough that after filling... More

If you're like me, a traditional pizza lover, that all you need is bread-tomato souce- cheese, then Zachery's will change your life. This is pizza heaven. Chacago style pizza is a pie kind of pizza, full of rich souce, great dough and lots of cheese! I recommend the vegie option. You should also go to Zachery's couse it's a co-operative... More
