Took 3 teens they had a ball! Greek town location. The seafood pizza was a hit! The staff is very pleasant and helpful. Kids also like the meat loves pizza. Good time!

For a self-described pizza snob, I love Pizza Papalis. I always put an asterisk next to the pizza here, since it is "Chicago-style"....and very good! It had been many years since I was last at Pizza Papalis. I always did enjoy it, though. I ended up going here prior to a Tigers game with my son as a way to... More

Their Chicago-style spinach and mushroom pizza is my go-to order, so I can't speak about the other menu items. Allow at least an hour for carryout, and there is usually a wait, so at least double your time allowance if dining in (triple if there is an event going on downtown.)

I've been enjoying deepdish pizza for decades. While the Chicago style was an early favorite over the years I've come to prefer the Pizza Papalis style over anything I get in downtown Chicago anymore. That said, the Greektown location is the only one worth going to. The suburban chains just don't seem to taste as good and I've encountered management... More

I used to go here often growing up while living in the area, so when I had a chance to return last year I was there. The Seafood Pizza did not disappoint even better than I remember. A must if you like seafood.

If you want deep dish or pan make sure you plan for at least an hour wait. We went with the flat crust but it did not disappoint. Portion was huge, we got a small between my wife and I and we barely got through half. Service was good and our wait was very friendly.

We came in here after The Black Keys Concert, after seeing all the great reviews we figured we would give it a try. We were not disappointed the Wings were absolutely fantastic tender fall of the bone, the Pizza was just as good you get what you pay for as a small was more than enough for two of us.... More

The pie is great, I love the thin crust, out for control good. The ranch dressing is perfect, it's the best addition to a pizza so it's a must. Place is big and the restrooms are clean. Never have had bad service here one time, never have been disappointed in the food.
