We visit this place for lunch most often we visit Berkeley. There are two restaurants within short driving distances from the UC Berkeley campus. This pizza reminds me of my years in Chicago. I particularly prefer the thick crust. I was not so excited about the normal or thin crust. The environment is how a typically a pizza place is.... More

We use Zachary's frequently for a quick pie. Service is terrific, but do call ahead to order. Gets quite full most nights. We are big fans of their thin crust pies.

MMMM! Got a delivery from here and it was just so delicious. This is a pizza like no other made in the Chicago style. The pizza base is like a pie crust which is then stuffed (rather than topped) with the toppings of your choice. We chose a build your own, with Italian sausage and mushrooms. The quality of the...

Worker owned, fantastic thin or stuffed, customer art on the walls, Zachary's is awesome. Slices til 4, half bakes or full bakes all day, call ahead for dinner pickups I recommend. Another iconic wonder of Berkeley Oakland.

Zachary's has a variety of tasty pizzas, by pie, by slice and better yet, you can order by phone and pick up pre-cooked to finish at home. We usually eat dinner pizzas at home but you can eat at the store if you don't mind lots of folks around you all enjoying pizza.

The best pie in Berkeley both deep dish and thin crust. Be aware, you must love garlic to agree with this statement. Unique crispy crust with corn meal for texture.

We arrived and there was quite a line and no tables. Not to worry, we were seated shortly after ordering our pizza. There are a number of pizzas to choose from so we asked the person behind the counter. There are so many pizzas to choose from and the person behind the counter was a vegetarian so of course, she...

This place was so crowded the night we arrived, that we had to wait for 15 minutes just to get a seat and then another 40 minutes to get the pizza ready. The pizza is called deep dish because of its thickness. We ordered the Zachary special pizza which they said available only in their place so we could not... More

Someone in our group drove over there and just walked in and bought a vegetarian deep dish pizza which we baked at home. I was told that there is a waiting time to eat there or to pick any other type of pizza up. This one is already pre-made and therefore ready. The pizza was fantastic. One was plenty for... More
