It seems as though the prices go up every few months at our local pizza place. Still ther quality and ease attracts me. Very basic service. Take out for us.

We keep coming back to this neighborhood pizza parlor because we have enjoyed so many great pies before. Now the quality is just so-so and the service is dreary. I don't think the staff like their jobs, even though they supposedly have some stake in...the business. it does not show. They are blah or rude. Food is just OK.More

This is the closest thing to authentic Chicago deep-dish pizza that you'll find in the SF Bay Area. The Chicago Fire chain in and around Sacramento is THE authentic thing in Northern CA, but if you can't get there, Zachary's is certainly better than "good...enough" to satisfy your craving for Chicago deep-dish. Skip all the Californicated options (butternut squash, Mediterranean, chorizo, etc.) and get the Zachary's Special; it will be the most Chicago of the choices. A small stuffed is more than enough for 2 people. We got that plus a single garden salad to share, for a total of $35, and we were happy for dinner and lunch the next day. Good value when you figure 2 meals for 2 people. If you're from Chicago and need a fix of something close to Giordano's, Geno's, Aurelio's, etc., then hit up Zachary's.More

We've been coming here for maybe 20 years and it is really going downhill. Tonight they gave me someone else's pizza and I did not discover the mistake until I got home and started to eat. I guess another customer is disappointed as well. I...called to let them know and they offered 50% off on another pizza. What? Prices have gone up about 60 to 70% in 10 years and the toppings are disappearing. Lots of competition out there so they better get it together.More

This has to be the worse pizza I have ever had. The pizza sauce ranges from bland to sour. I had two pieces and threw the rest in the garbage. It’s the first time I’ve ever been to Zachary’s. I was expecting something better but,...it truly is some really bad pizza.More

You really have to like tomatoes and tomato sauce to enjoy Zachary’s. Sure, it’s an institution, but there’s better places in town. Good crust through on thin style.

We are here every week for slices for lunch, but sometimes we come here to eat in. And it's our favorite place for take out pizza. The stuffed pizza is their great feature. Some staff are great and friendly, others not so much.

Just 2 blocks from my house, Zachary's is a neighborhood institution and never, ever, ever fails to come up to top marks. Noisy and crowded for a sit-down meal...so we always get take-out. Their half-cooked option is brilliant; when we travel, we take a couple...to finish cooking upon arrival, and the kids gobble them down.More

My family and I called in our order. The young man on the phone was very accommodating. He went above and beyond to make sure our order was correct. This meant alot to us especially considering my vegetarian preferences. The food was hot, well seasoned...with fresh ingredients. I will definitely return.More

We had a large vegetarian pizza and caesar salad. Both were good. Ordered from our hotel about 9p. Delivery was slow, but the order was complee and they had included serviceware and extra cheese and hot flakes. Nice fellow delivered who deserved his big tip.

Great pizza and service when you get to the front of the line but that is the whole point of waiting for a little bit of time for the best deep dish pizza around.

Went in to get a pizza, nice gentleman at register told us the time it would take and we couldn't hang out-so we started to leave, when he said he had a "not picked up" pizza that we could have-he made it clear that it...had been baked more than 20 mins ago, but the toppings were ok with us, and he offered it at a discount, so we said sure! It was delicious.More

Zachary's Pizza has been our go to pizza place for decades. We always enjoy their traditional deep dish pizza but have also fallen for their wonderful thin crust pizza. We always get the high quality ingredients when we order a pizza and whether eating their...or doing a pick up the customer service is friendly, supportive and professional.More

Yes. I do not think you can be in N. Cal, adjacent to BERKELEY, without a vegan option. Enjoy!
