You can never really go wrong

pizza papalis is hands down the best deep dish pizza spot in Detroit. My favorite is seafood. I've had the meat lovers which was good but nothing to go crazy over. The new flatbread appetizer is good. Would I order it again naw.

Took my wife here to experience real Chicago style deep dish. The pizza is AMAZING. Expect a 40-60 min wait for that style pizza due to the thickness and the fact they're freshly made.

besides being in Greektown I do not understand all the hype. I have had both the deep dish and regular crust, which I enjoy better. They do gave a full menu which really is once again nothing special. The atmosphere is great, but honestly the food is nothing special. If you want the Greektown experience and a fair pizza place...

Had the Meat Eaters pizza and it was amazing! The atmosphere was very comfortable and their beer selection was great. This will be my pizza go-to in Detroit!

We were part of the Lutheran convention and ate here as part of our adventure. the service was great and the food was excellent. They were able to keep our leftovers until later in the day, so we didn't have to haul them around all day.

They have "Chicago-style" deep dish as well as traditional crust pizza. If pizza isn't your thing, they also have a full menu to pick from. We had the deep dish and a traditional crust pizza. Both were excellent. The crust of the deep dish was different than Gino's - less of a cornmeal taste - but we all really liked... More

We had a deep dish pizza and a Greek salad. We all loved both. Fresh salad with their amazing dressing followed by the Papalis Gourmet Deep Dish was perfect. We (3 of us) had more than we could eat. I would have given them a 5 but our server was pretty slow. It takes a while for the deep dish... More

If you're in Detroit and want pizza you must visit here. The pizza is excellent with many different options. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Two slices of this pizza will fill you up.

Some friends highly recommended Pizza Papalis and took us here when we came to Detroit. The deep dish was delicious. We just got a all with pepperoni and bacon and it was perfect for 3 of us! It took a while, but worth it.
