Pizza is great. Had the spinach & mushroom with extra sauce & well done, for a crispier taste. A small is more than enough for 2 people, without other food. The downside to all Zachary's is that it is popular & there is a wait at most times of the day. At 215pm, we waited 15 min to sit &... More

Every time we pass Zachary's there is a long line, often out the door. So we decided to try 2 take it pies and were not disappointed. Z serves really great brick oven pizza with a perfect crust of great homemade dough, super tomato sauce, excellent quality toppings and thick, oozing cheese. Order ahead or stand in line- Zachary's is... More

You can't go wrong with Zachary's pizza. The sauce alone, flavorful and chunky, is the best in Oakland. The perfect cheese, to sauce, to crust ratio every time

I highly recommend the "Pride and Joy" deep dish, spinach & mushroom. You won't miss the meat, I promise.

We always get the carne deep dish, either as full-bake or half-bake, and every time, it's amazing. We always order out because it's nicer to eat at home, as well.

Ordered the arugula salad with fennel and parmesan cheese. This was enough for 2 - 3 people. For the pizza, we opted for a medium thin crust Zachary special. The medium was enough to feed maybe 4 people. Really good crispy crust and fresh toppings. We were tempted to order the deep dish but it looked super filling. Maybe next... More

Good service for a Saturday afternoon. Bit of a wait but Chicago deep dish pizza is like that. Almost as good as deep dish I've had in Chicago. They had the entire restaurant sing Happy Birthday to me. Fun. And good beer on tap.

Delicious pizza that is most certainly thick and gooey. The crusty bottoms and sides may be the best part. Good take-out. Lines can get long so call ahead.
