If you're looking for a Chicago style deep dish pizza and a packed crowd Zachary's on Solano is the place. Just be prepared to wait at least 30 mins to sit and another 30 mins to get the pizza.

Server barely stopped by our table. Not her fault. Management needs to address it. She was overworked. Only a couple of servers on the floor. Water was never refilled, check ins didn't happen.

This is not our first time to Zachary's. If you like stuffed pizza, you won't be disappointed. Good selection of stuffings. Child friendly.

Zachary's is my favorite pizza ever. I love the rich, very moist deep -dish the best. It's almost soupy, but holds together, with chunks of tomato in the sauce. Sensuous, delectable ... not the dry slices I find elsewhere. I rarely drink soda but indulge in their free-refill program. Delicious salads as well, and always lovely service.

The winning posters from their annual contest hang along their walls and are so creative and fun to look at as you wait for your order.

They do a great job on deep dish pizza, what can I say? Sometimes, it's tough to get what you want... understandably, they can only accept so many appointments per quarter hour for finished pizza... they have a finite kitchen capacity at each restaurant (Berkeley, Oakland, Danville, etc.) And they need to retain some kitchen capacity for eat-in business.

The trick is to order a half-baked pizza... as that offers them more flexibility in preparation time, and you can get a half-baked order in when they won't accept a finished pizza order. And it's better that way too (assuming you're somewhere with an oven) as the pizza comes hot from the oven at your house to enjoy.

Call early... when they open, if you can. And don't get confused as to which location is which... the Oakland location is really close to the Berkeley border, and the Berkeley location is sitting on the Albany border... details matter!
