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.

This place does a pretty good job of dealing with the number of people that pack in. The pizza is high quality with enough variety of styles to please almost any pizza lover. But definitely heavy on the tomato sauce. Overall not dissapointed.

There are a lot of places where you can get artery-clogging food and on those occasions when I am inclined to take that risk, Zachary's is where I go to get the highest taste-reward to cholesterol-risk. I cannot imagine a better deep dish pizza with its spicy tomato and thick cheese base accompanied by whatever other toppings you like. I... More
