One of the BEST pizza eateries in the D

I've been going to Pizza Popalis for over 20 years! It's my favorite pizza place in the city of Detroit! My favorite pizza is the Deep dish seafood pizza with pineapple. Wow, it is soooo good! My wife and I love it! They also have really good salads and many other delicious dishes!

Well. LOVE the deep dish pie. Crust is a bit different than true Chicago deep dish. It's good! Nailed the sauce. I had the server Terry wrap the final slice of our pie left in foil and put in a bag to stuff in my carry on for a flight from DTW back to MIA. Result. An awesome lunch reheat... More

Great deep dish pizza in the heart of Greektown. We watched the hockey game and ate a deep dish pizza that would rival anything from Chicago. Just be prepared to wait, deep dish takes longer.

Definitely one of my favorites. Comfort food at its best. Enjoy a extra thick cheesy piece of pizza and a Greek salad. You will never be disappointed and you will more than likely be bringing home leftovers! Great place to eat in Detroit's Greektown.

This is that spot. If you havent had it, you truly are missing out. During any sporting events its packed. But they are worth any wait you have to endure.
