“A Local Favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Zachery's is locally famous for thick pizzas, available by the slice during the day. More sauce than most, very fresh tomato taste, and a crispy crust thick enough to hold the weight of the topping. They also have a deep dish, which I imagine is even richer. I have been stopping by monthly for years. Always great..

“Great Deep Dish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Best Chicago-style deep-dish pizza in the Bay Area -- and I grew up in Chicago. Try the Mediterranean on a whole wheat crust.

“Chicago Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I am a huge fan of Chicago stuffed pizza (my personal favorite in Chicago is Lou Malnato's). Although I wouldn't say that Zachary's is quite as good as Malnato's, it is a very good imitation! A bit pricey though. Good selection of beers. I went to the location in the Rockridge area of Oakland, convenient to the BART station. I arrived about 4:30 pm on a Sunday and had no wait. However, by the time I left 90 minutes later, there was quite a line.

“The Cal students love it, the yuppies love it, just about everyone loves it.”

Best pizza in the bay area! When Cal is in, it is packed Friday-Sunday. Most Fri and Saturdays they don't even answer the phone for take out order after about 4:30pm!.
