“Consistent great pizza and service for take out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We always do take out. Since she left for college in 2003,Zachary's is s our daughter's first request upon arriving in Oakland. We also enjoy their gluten-free variety.

“some of the best pizza on the planet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Seriously, this place is a dining experience for the pizza lover! The spinach mushroom pizza is absolutely delicious as is everything on their menu. I have never gotten a pizza from Zachary's that has been anything other than awesome.

Due to the fact that this place is very unique business establishment, they don't deliver and they only accept cash. if you live in a local area, you can get it delivered by a third-party delivery service.

Try this place. You will not be disappointed!

“A Taste of HOme”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Zachary's is always crowded for good reasons: mainly, the Chicago-style pizza tastes like the real thing, the staff is always efficient, pleasant and used to handling the constant throngs of people waiting to take out or sit down in the no frills dining room. The wine is plentiful and well-priced, and makes the wait go faster. If you are an Oaklander, you will probably run into someone you know, and if you are a visitor, you will enjoy the wonderful neighborhood experience. They are famous for thick crust pies, but I love the crispy thin crusts, especially the Good Health with a whole wheat crust, spinach and chicken.
