Small favors - Edit

tac0-flavored-kisses was spot on with her or his review. If you are sociable, you are almost certainly going to end up here (or possibly one of two other locations). Back in the early 80s, this was the default choice and casual pizza Mecca for local college students who continue to come today. It wasn't until "middle age" that Zachary's offered Us anything. While only "okay" and while they might aspire to something better, I'm thankful that it isn't socially, dietarily isolating.

Pros: atmosphere, popularity

Cons: Limited choice

Decent vegan pizza - Edit

Zachary's really isn't a place for a vegan. Having said that, sometimes you are stuck going for work etc. and if that's the case, at least you know you can get a decent, yet pricey, cheeseless pizza. I mean, it would be nothing to write home about but it's not bad. A little plain and lacking a little salt without the cheese but that is easily fixed with a little salt and red pepper flakes. In real life, vegans need to improvise when out with non-vegans. I ordered the spinach and mushroom pizza sans cheese and made it work.

Pros: at least you can eat something, sauce is good, beer!

Cons: expensive, long waits, not great for vegans

Dream come true - Edit

I thought that deep-dish pizza would never happen for me, as a vegan. This place made my dreams come true.

The deep-dish pizza here is AMAZING. Lots of ingredients to choose from, fresh, delicious - just the way I remember it.

Note: a deep-dish pizza takes about 45min to cook, so calling ahead isn't a bad idea.

Staff is knowledgeable about what veganism is.

Pros: Vegan deep-dish pizza!

Cons: Serves meat
