Do you deliver?

We do not deliver. We offer take out and dine in only. We believe by doing so, we can offer the highest quality pizza and service. We want to inform our customers that restaurant delivery services almost always add high surcharges to menu items as well as delivery fees. If you chose to use a restaurant delivery service please understand we cannot control the quality of the food or service you receive and we would be unable to offer any compensation for problems with your order. Thank you!

Can I order a partially cooked pizza to finish at home?

You may order any of our pizzas “half-baked”. You can finish cooking the pizzas at your convenience.  Just call us on the phone! We also stock a few limited options everyday at all 4 Zachary’s. See instructions for “half-baked” pizzas.

Do you take reservations?

At our Oakland and Berkeley locations, we accept walk-ins only. Seating is first come, first served. If the restaurant is full, you will be able to order your pizzas once you have received an estimated wait time for your table. This way your pizzas will cook while you wait!

At our San Ramon location, we accept RESERVATIONS based on availability. We always welcome walk-ins. Please call Zachary’s San Ramon (925) 244-1222 for more information. We require weekend reservation parties to order your pizzas in advance, so they will be ready shortly after you arrive.

At our Pleasant Hill location, lunch and early dinner RESERVATIONS are available Monday - Thursday 11 - 5:30 and Friday 11-2:30. We'll take your order in advance so your pizzas are ready shortly after you arrive! Call (925) 602-7000.

Can I call ahead to put my name on the seating list or find out how long the wait for a table is?

If the restaurant is full, we ask that customers are in the restaurant to put their name on the list for a table. The estimated wait times fluctuate, and we are unable to give estimated wait times over the phone.

Can I place an order over the phone and then come to dine in the restaurant?

At our Oakland and Berkeley locations, we take dine-in orders over the phone 11 am- 4 pm only. While we encourage you to order in advance, we cannot guarantee a table will be available when you arrive. For phone orders after 4 pm, we are only able to accept take-out orders. If there is a wait for tables, you will be able to order your pizza after you receive an estimated wait time.

At our San Ramon location, we take dine-in orders over the phone during all business hours.  Unless you have a reservation, we cannot guarantee a table will be available when you arrive.

At our Pleasant Hill location, lunch and early dinner RESERVATIONS are available Monday - Friday 11 am to 5:30 pm. We'll take your order in advance so your pizzas are ready shortly after you arrive! Call (925) 602-7000.

Can I save a table until the rest of my party arrives?

We do not seat incomplete parties unless you are able to order the pizzas for the entire party.  Additionally, we request that the remainder of your party arrive within a few minutes of seating your party.

What is the difference between Zachary's STUFFED & THIN pizza?

Not to be confused with “Sicilian” style, “Stuffed Crust” or other “deep dish” pizzas, Zachary’s Stuffed Chicago Style pizza is something else altogether. A thin layer of our house made pizza dough is tucked into a deep dish pizza pan. We fill the pie with the highest quality cheese and any combination of fresh toppings. Another thin layer of dough is then added to cover the filling. The pizza is then topped with our zesty, diced tomato sauce and is slowly cooked in our oven. The top layer of dough will melt into the cheese and seal in flavor as our flaky, buttery crust bakes until it is golden brown. Allow 30-40 minutes for Stuffed Pizzas.

Zachary’s THIN Style pizza is a great choice for those who prefer a more traditional pizza. Our fresh, house made pizza dough is rolled to a moderate thickness and dusted with cornmeal. A specially seasoned, hearty diced tomato sauce is then applied along with the ingredients you choose. Allow 20-30 minutes for Thin Pizzas.

Do you ship your pizzas for mail order customers?

To insure the best possible quality, we do not ship our pizzas. We have experienced problems trying to do so in the past.

In moderate weather, many customers do travel a few hours by car with half-baked pizzas.

Are you hiring?

Zachary's Pizza is always looking for energetic, highly motivated, and hard working people to join our wonderful crew in our Oakland, Berkeley, San Ramon, and Pleasant Hill locations.

Where does the Zachary’s Art on your walls come from?

Since the mid-80’s, we have hosted an art contest open to all lovers of Zachary’s.  Art is inspired by Zachary’s Chicago Pizza and is proudly displayed and rotated at Zachary’s Oakland, Berkeley, San Ramon, and Pleasant Hill, CA for years to come.
See Zachary’s Art.
