We drove by this pizza shop several times on our way to UC Berkeley and saw many people lining up in front of the shop. So, we finally decided to wait in line to try it out. The line moved pretty fast, and we were seated within a reasonable time. Deep pan is quite deep. I prefer the think crust,... More

Definitely worth the wait. Best Chicago style pizza outside of Chicago. They offer thin crust as well but I definitely recommend the deep dish.

We arrived before the crowd. Had a 10 minute wait. No problem! Loved the art in the walls and watching all the different pizzas being delivered around us. I had thin crust pepperoni, very delicious!! my friend had deep dish and was in heaven from the first bite. Well worth the wait, if you have one. We were told to... More

We have eaten at Zachary's regularly ever since they opened. The quality of their ingredients shines through on every pie. Most often we call in for take out. This should be done early in the day; some evenings you can't get through on the phone. Very kid friendly - walls feature local student art.

I know this has been said time and again (and my deepest apologies to those from Chicago) - fantastic deep dish pizza! I go every single time I'm in Berkeley which is quite often and I savor every moment I spend waiting for my delicious personal pizza concoction to arrive at my table. My daughter highly recommends the Caesar salad... More

We had heard about Zac's from some friends and had to hunt them down! We enjoyed our visit to Berkeley that much more after our pizza. Great flavours and the large must have weighed 10lbs! Recommend to anyone visiting!

The title speaks for itself. There is usually a little wait tone seated during the dinner rush but it's well worth the wait (and I hat waiting). Go to Zachary's hungry. Added bonus: the winners of the annual poster competition are hung on the wall.

Zachary's has the best deep dish pizza!! Whether you get it to eat there, or for takeaway, it is excellent! Their regular pizzas are good as well, but I'm a huge fan of the deep dish!

Most of Berkeley and Oakland pizza eaters are big fans of Zachary's. My family loves Zachary's pizza, especially the deep dish variety, but I don't particularly like the crust; I prefer Little Star's cornmeal crust, and Gioia's as well. Zachary's sausage is delicious, but their sauce doesn't have a bold enough flavor; I think it needs fresh basil and fresh... More
