I’m married to a Chicagoan and we always have spinach stuffed pizza when we’re back visiting family. Zachary’s is the real deal! Now why can’t we get an italian beef out here?

I have been coming to Zachary's pizza for years. It is a bay area institution. I even served it at my wedding! I've never eaten in the restaurant as it is on the smaller side. Like most locals I order ahead on the phone and...More

The pizza is terrible, it's noisy and crowded--you have to order at counter and the prices are high-food is awful-not even good salads

The food at this restaurant is very delicious. Especially the deep dish. It seems to be there signature Chicago style food. They have options for vegetarians and meat lovers.

Without a doubt the best fresh tomato (chunky sauce) topping on any pizza anywhere. I won't quibble with "chicago style", but I think they are selling themselves short by trying for the comparison. Zachary's is in a class by itself for "pizza". Fresh fresh fresh...More

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