The place was packed but it's the auto show weekend and NFL championship games. Everyone was busy but very courteous. The Greek salad was sooo good. Our pizza was outstanding!!! Deep dish papalis gourmet.

I'm a New Yorker living in Detroit, so to me, Chicago-style "pizza" is more like a casserole than a real pizza. Having said that, Pizza Papalis is the best Chicago-style I've had in this town. Great crust! Also a pretty good Caesar salad for a take-out place.

Went here with a few of my fellow employees for lunch. Short walk from the office and an always consistent, good lunch.

Stopped in before heading over to the Joe for Hockey! Got a medium thin-crust with pepperoni and onion. The portions are large! A medium was more than almost any two people could eat, and we got bread sticks for an appetizer! The crust has a butter-biscuit lightness to it that is very pleasing in both texture and taste, at least... More

Located in the heart of Greektown. This is a must stop if you're in downtown Detroit. Order their deep dish. I'll let the pizza speak for itself.

I loved the fact I could do a half and half pizza but the deep dish combination of a seafood pizza and a vegetarian pizza with beef. It was a a great meal that is even better the next day. The small pizza is enough for 4-5 people but the slices are huge. Service was good and the crust of... More

The beers were served in frosted glasses and the pizza was piping hot, tasty and was served with plenty of toppings. We ordered the medium thin crust. A medium will feed a family of four. The regular size greek salad will easily feed two people. A family owned business with the family members working right beside their employees. A rarity... More

Wow! Its as good as ever. The deep dish is heavenly. The sauce, generous toppings, and crust could not be better. Deep dish can take 45-50 minutes so plan accordingly. They have a thin crust that looks more like others regular pizza. It was great as well. Appetizers and drinks help you pass the time. The place seemed brighter than... More
