I walked by Zachary's 3 times before stopping in for the first time. The smell coming from the place made me crave pizza. I stepped inside and was not greeted right away. When I was, I was told to take a menu and a seat and someone would be with me. This took far too long considering the amount of... More

This is the best Chicago style pizza I have had the pleasure to eat. Expect a wait to get in and another wait for your pizza to cook.

Zacharys is my go to spot when I'm craving a good deep dish pizza. Although I've never had a true Chicago deep dish, my fiancee who is from the east coast says it's a great quick fix to the real deal!

I was very excited when this restaurant moved into our neighborhood! They make incredible pizza. It is fresh and will season. I am thrilled that they offer a vegan option as well. This is one of our go to places.

is the best chicago style pizza i tryed and if you don't like that the thin crust is great too, is close to the bart station and then you don't have to worry about parking, but these place is always packed and that's for a reason..

I love pizza and all styles. Yes, this is thick deep dish pizza. It is so good, though. Never disappoints. Par bake for home finishing or completely baked. Yum.

We happened into Zachary's on a busy weekday at lunch. It was bustling, but we easily got a table. We had pepperoni and sausage and also a veggie pizza slice. The latter was the best I'd ever tasted anywhere. Great server, and good selection of beers.

Thank Suzanne H
