Seriously, this place is a dining experience for the pizza lover! The spinach mushroom pizza is absolutely delicious as is everything on their menu. I have never gotten a pizza from Zachary's that has been anything other than awesome.

Due to the fact that this place is very unique business establishment, they don't deliver and they only accept cash. if you live in a local area, you can get it delivered by a third-party delivery service.

Try this place. You will not be disappointed!

Zachary's is always crowded for good reasons: mainly, the Chicago-style pizza tastes like the real thing, the staff is always efficient, pleasant and used to handling the constant throngs of people waiting to take out or sit down in the no frills dining room. The wine is plentiful and well-priced, and makes the wait go faster. If you are an Oaklander, you will probably run into someone you know, and if you are a visitor, you will enjoy the wonderful neighborhood experience. They are famous for thick crust pies, but I love the crispy thin crusts, especially the Good Health with a whole wheat crust, spinach and chicken.

We have so many friends who adore Zachary's pizza. We've had it at least half a dozen times at parties, including a couple of weeks ago by SIL's request (moving out of state; this was her choice of a farewell pizza). We've had thick crust and thin crust. Meat and vegetarian. From three of their EBay locations. And without exception, we simply do not understand the passion for this mediocre local pizza chain.

Pizziaolo makes the best pizza in Oakland. We also love Nizza La Bella/Berkeley's incredible "La Fruits De Mer “Bouiabaissa" pizza - stunning, brilliant creation. Also amazing is Oenotri/Napa. But Zachary's - no, no, no.

I've enjoyed Zachary's for years, and keep on returning for great pizza. Many people love the stuffed pizza (particularly the spinach and mushroom special). Yes, that's delicious, but what I really like is their thin crust pizza. It's the perfect texture of thin crust. And it's always topped deliciously.
