I've been living abroad for the better part of a decade, but whenever I come back to the Bay, the first meal, last meal, and arguably too many in between are Zach's unbelievably tasty pies. Some of the most traumatic experiences from my childhood were...More

We got take out deep dish pizza recently; it exceeded my expectations. I could discern the various spices in the sauce, which tasted like fresh roasted tomatoes and onions, not some indistinct red sauce. Imagine it would taste even better if eaten in the restaurant....More

I don't believe they accept reservations. You can order take out though if you don't feel up to waiting in line.
