Long-time Sacramento residents know this place. Pizza lovers know this place. Anyone who loves small and dark....well, you love this place too.
Zelda's has been part of Sacramento's Midtown scene for as long as I can remember. And what I also remember -- as all Zelda's fans do -- is to call ahead for your pizza. As the website so clearly states.
Zelda's pizza (ca. 1978) are well-worth the wait., but the bar is small and the restaurant almost as small. And pies of this depth take time...lots of time. So they ask that you order ahead and they'll let you know (approximately) what time to arrive in order to "meet" your pizza at the table.
What has prompted this review, is that Zelda's is currently surrounded by a construction-styled war zone.
Sad little signs inform the questioning public that, yes, Zelda's is OPEN! The front door encapsulated in plywood while the construction project is in progress.
Don't be deterred. Brave the barriers and enjoy a Sacramento favorite.Owner Zelda Breslin, who passed away in 2006, never advertised. So this bit of free press is just one way of saying thanks for so many years providing Sacramento's most popular Chicago-style pizzapie. Thanks, Zelda!
