I love a good pizza. Good pizzas are made and served here at Zachary's. But the pizzas are way to busy for me. I didn't like Zachary's as a young man and I don't enjoy them now. However I still go to Zachary's because so many people especially children absolutely love Zachary's. So I go and enjoy the upbeat and... More

Love, Love, LOVE that deep dish pizza. Whenever we are near Berkeley we get a half baked pie to go and then savor it at home!

Good Pizza, but insanely expensive. Around $27 for a small deep dish meat pizza. Nothing about it was very special. The Star is much better in about every way, and less expensive.

This place is always packed specially on the weekends. They are always so busy that the service suffers a bit. The food is great and definitely worth the wait.

I loved the crushed tomatoes on top of our pie but some in our group thought it was too heavy on the toms. This establishment is worker owned and you feel good supporting this venture by merely eating delicious pizza pie.

I am from Chicago. I take pizza seriously. When I need my deep dish pizza fix, this is where I go. Dive into savory sauce and steaming mozzarella in a delicious crust. My favorite is the spinach deep dish which is meatless in a nod to California but keeps and possibly improves on the Chicago standard.

There is no long story here, if you are in the Oakland-Berkeley area, you must visit Zachary's. Deep dish-delicious. thin crust -delicious. Large pies for big groups, small pies for couples, slices for singles, all super tasty pizza. Go, now, I'll wait...
