Zachary's Chicago Pizza BEST PIZZA in Diablo Magazine's Best of the East Bay 2013, Reader Pick backed up by the Diablo Editors.

Since Zachary's opened its doors in San Ramon in 2006 (after two decades in the 510), the teeming crowds have barely abated.The wait for a table on weekends can be up to a half hour,but you can order your pizza the moment you walk in the door. That way, when you do sit down you can dig right into the tangy, tomato-topped deep-dish pizza.The buttery crust and generous fillings of tasty ingredients such as spinach and mushrooms are worth the wait every time. The thin crust pizza with its crispy,cornmeal-lined base is also delicious. The Zachary's team has captured pizza perfection—as well as the neighborhood feeling of the other two locations. For take out call inadvance, and order a half-baked, deep-dish or ready-to-go pie. Lunch and dinner daily. Also in Berkeley and Oakland.

Some people will go out of their way to get Zachary’s pizza. While Ken and Marcia Powers hiked the rugged 6,800-mile American Discovery Trail, they even sent postcards to the pizzeria on Oakland’s College Avenue expressing their longing for a deep-dish slice....

Zachary's Pizza, Diablo magazine's Best Pizza in 2005. Best Of The East Bay
Everybody knows that Zachary's pizza is mind-blowingly good. Diablo asked "Vinny," one of the Contra Costa Times’ recently retired undercover "Pizza Guys" for his expert take on our readers' favorite East Bay pie.
"I will confess to many personal food comas brought on by the pesto and mushroom pie. The crushed red tomatoes, topped with the swirl of pesto, all sitting on a bed of delicious mozzarella and mushrooms, nestled in that buttery deep dish crust makes me cry: 'Honey, where's my Lipitor?'
"The only thing better than eating at Zachary's is to get one of these pies half-baked, so you can take it home to your craving pregnant wife. Not only do you get to share an incredible pie, you can share the overstuffed feeling of pregnancy: her with an actual child and you with a food baby."
