This place has incredible pizza, and it's located right at the center of Rockridge which makes it easy to get to and easy to fit into a fun night! When you walk in, you stand in line to order then you get seated... functionally, it's because it takes a while to cook the deep dish pizz, but it does kind... More

I am a very picky eater but I really loved their Chicago deep dish pizza. Even though I don't like tomato, the chunks that were in the pizza sauce were no problem to me because it didn't taste like it. I really enjoyed going there.

Great Pizza, Awsome deep dish pizza. The service can be slow and the line is out the door. Be prepared to wait but worth the wait.

Go eat here it is a n East Bay Icon. One thing is that if you go at 6.30-7:30pm be prepared to wait for a table. Especially on the weekends it can take 30-60min to get a table.

If you like thick crust pizza, this place is an institution in the East Bay. Super hectic environment in the restaurant, but well worth it based on the quality of the food. Typically crowded with lots of locals and students from Cal, so get their early and chow down.

Zachary Pizza has the best deep dish pizza on this planet! I have been going to Zachs for the past 25 years and they just keep getting better and better. An absolute must on a bucket list, over and over again!

Veggie pizza wins the day. While as a local I get a half baked cheese and top it at home, I bring people for full pies, and get a slice for lunch monthly. Try the thin crust, it's a sourdough. Salads are fabulous. Vegan cheeses, GF crust available. Delivery services offer this pie, too. Restaurant is bustling and energetic.
