Their Zacharys special deep dish is what to get! It can't be beat. I suggest calling ahead & placing your dine-in order, so you don't have to wait half an hour when you get there. Their are always plenty of tables, & the staff is great! Very non-pretenious. Parking can be tricky, but thats Solano Ave for ya.

I used to get the deep dish but now I really enjoy the thin crust. Just go and try it. If you love quality pizza, you won't be disappointed!

This is hands-down the most delicious pizza I've ever had! They have excellent vegetarian options (their spinach and mushroom is fantastic), and my husband has tried three of their meat options and enjoyed all of them. I've only ever tried their deep dish, and I'm honestly not sure I'll ever try their thin crust! The deep dish is cooked to... More

If you can find better pizza than this, tell me, and that includes deep dish offerings in Chicago. We tried 3 versions last night, and none of them could have been better. If you're in Berkeley, go out of your way to find this pizza. You'll be rewarded!

If you like deep-dish pizza, you have to try Zachary's. They have been the best in the East Bay since they opened in 1983. Sad for me, my kids don't like deep-dish, but they do also have thin crust pizza so everyone can get what the like. If you get a salad, their mustard-French dressing is pretty tasty as well....

If you are anywhere in San Francisco, or the East Bay, find time to get over to one of the most amazing pizza shops you will ever experience. Featured on the Food Channel and Zagat rated, Zachary's has also been voted best pizza in the East Bay for almost 30 years straight. Their Chicago style deep dish pizzas will blow... More

I go here all the time. Their deep dish pizza is the best in the East Bay, and as good as deep dish pizza in Chicago, in my opinion. Also, Zachary's is employee-owned, I believe. Their service is great. They are a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. This is not cheap pizza. They also have half-baked... More
