Zach's is consistently fabulous pizza - Chicago style & knocks the sauce off the original place I've been to in Chicago. Every time, it is absolutely delicious.

Zachary is top notch, worth the difficult Ashby parking and wait in line for a table. What's nice to is to get the half baked pies and take it home and enjoy it with your best glass of vino. Always a perfect ending to a long day walk or hiking. Don't wait, get in there!

One of the two best deep dish pizza places in the East Bay. You can get a full baked or half backed pizza for take out. The baked wings a juicy and not greasy.

Zachary's has the best pizza ever! We like to have it half baked, then take it home to finish cooking it. Absolutely wonderful crust and fresh ingredients.

Chicago deep dish pizza, yum! Get there before noon to beat the crowds! I recommend the healthy pizza with Chicken, Spinach and whole wheat crust, regular mozzarella cheese though!

The Chicago style deep dish pizza is to die for. All the tomato lovers should get this pizza. The restaurant is cool looking, had nice service and is across the street from a great ice cream place. It's a great place to hang out and get pizza.
