Gotta Stop By when in the Bay

Zachary's is delicious, but i gotta say, I feel like the quality has changed over the past few years...not for the better. The GOOD THING IS...it's still good. It's definitely worth a stop by...it's almost always super busy, super crowded, super loud...but good food, good environment...fun.

Yum Yum these guys own 3 branches of this joint. One in Oakland, One in Berkeley and One in San Ramon (out in suburbs of east bay) . They are all equally great. order Zachary;s special deep dish . you will enjoy every bit of it. Even if you hate thicker pizzas and prefer thin sliced italian pizzas, still try... More

If you like deep dish this is the place for you. Super yummy. Their thin corn meal crust is great too - one of my favorite pizzas is their Blanca - thin crust, 4 cheeses, pesto sauce. BAM!

We order a thin crust pizza from Zach's at least a couple times a month. They have never disappointed our taste buds. The sauce is NOT from cans it is homemade. I can taste the garlic, basil, oregano, etc. The meats are fresh and the cheese is the best. Their salads are really good too. The service is top notch.... More

Call me a snob but I like food.. tasty, hearty, fill my belly till I have food coma type. Although this place is often packed, I like having the option to pre-order the pizza and grab a beer while I wait. Yes, I've been to Chicago and have had Chicago-style pizza. My 2 cents: Zachary's whoops on all y'all. Sorry.... More

Their pizza is amazing! I usually get their deep dish which is the best I've had but their thin crust is amazing as well. be prepared to wait if you go on a weekend but they let you put in your order ahead of time and have a drink while waiting!

I don't claim to be a pizza expert. But, I have been eating pizza in Oakland for over 40 years. From Blondies to Rustica to Lanesplitter's you can get a very good pizza. However, my vote for the best is Zachary's. Not for the deep dish, mind you. No it is the traditional thin crust variety that they also excel... More

My husband had special dietary needs which were met with a genuine desire to please. The environment inside Zachary's on College Avenue is very casual and comfortable. The hospitality is the best: we felt we could stay as long as we desired and there was every effort to be helpful and insure we enjoyed our pizzas and visit there. The... More

If you like Chicago style Pizza (stuffed) this is the stuff. Love eating in store. The art work they have the school kids do is classic. I've been to the Solano Dr, & Pleasant Hill location and the Pizza is always top notch.

Delicious deep dish pizza. Their sauce is incredible. So is the sausage. My daughter is gluten free and dairy free (due to allergies) and they have both options! Recently had the thin crust and it's just as good as the deep dish. Consistently busy but it's a fun atmosphere even if you have to wait a while for a table.... More
