We love deep-dish pizza. Zachary's does a good job. We prefer to pick up a half-baked pizza and finish the cooking at home. It can be a zoo in the restaurant. We especially like the deep dish with mushrooms and spinach. We get regular crust...More

Zachary's - always popular and busy - is a bustling busy dine-in scene. Service is casual, yet professional. Nothing beats the pizzas fresh off the wood fire, but we frequently enjoy take out, and always order extra to eat later. Hard to say whether the...More

We had one of our first dates at Zachary's on Solano over 30 years ago. The Chicago Style is superb then and now. Consistent perfection. Now we share the experience with the grandkids.

Can get really busy on weekend (and even some weekday) nights, so we like the take-away options for half-baked deep-dish pies. Their salads are surprisingly good, and good for to-go option as well as it's enough to share for several people.

Zachary's consistently makes a delicious deep dish pizza. It's fun to eat there, but expect a decently long wait (even if a table is available - the deep dish pizzas take at least 30 minutes to make). Family friendly and fun, relaxed atmosphere.

Zachary's Pizza has been a nieghboorhod jewel for over a decade. I enjoy, not only the Chicago style pizza but also the atmosphere. Families, friends and individuals all come and dine in for some of the best pizza on the West Coast.

Zachary's stuffed pizza, especially the spinach and mushroom, is wonderful. For takeout, get the half-baked version if you want to pick it up earlier in the day. Sometimes their phone lines get busy around dinnertime, but that's the only drawback.

Amazing deep dish pizza. They get busy and the deep dish pizza can take 45 minutes. Great staff, service and location on College Avenue

By far, one of my favorite for Deep Dish Pizza! I do Italian sausage with spinach, it never disappoints. Be prepared to wait! They always have a line because they’re that good! In the waiting area grab a seat and order a beer to pass...More

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