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

Had the seafood deep-dish pizza and it was so delightful to taste. The experience is one I can not forget, this pizza is what I want for a special treat. Well worth the wait for a deep-dish pizza!

I was very comfortable with the atmosphere. Food was served hot and delicious. We ordered an assortment of dishes because so.e are vegan and others are meat lovers. We had dining pleasure! The adult beverages were done well and the service was very pleasant. I will be returning very soon.

Always wonderful pizza. Nice salads. Cool place. Love it. Even the parking is easy in the casino garage or one block north in the municipal lot.

If you like Chicago style pizza and pretty fair thin crust, this is for you. Long a mainstay for us for a meal before a Lions game, it's always reliable. Try the Calzone as well.

Located directly across from the Greektown casino, it's well located for a ton of foot traffic. Conveniently placed within walking distance of the monorail and a number of destinations. This does result in a usual long wait during game days and regular meal times. Unfortunately for the long wait times, the food takes awhile to be made as well and... More

If I made a list of the five best pizza places in metro Detroit, the question wouldn’t be: “Did Pizza Papalis make it?” The question would be: “How high is Pizza Papalis on the list?” It’s a no-brainer. The pie is incredible, every single time. Unless you’re in a heck of a hurry, you have to order the Chicago-style pizza.... More
