It is good for a quick bite and conversation. Local meeting spot, that's clean and accessible. One of a kind pizza options.

Visited here for the second time in February and enjoyed it even more. We ordered a medium deep dish and it was almost too much for two adult men. Will definitely return anytime I'm in Detroit.

If you're are interested in having some great Chicago style deep dish pizza, this place is the best! Don't let the 40 minute wait for the deep dish scare you away, it's totally worth the wait.

The problem is that I'm italian, and this is not pizza, but I have to admit that I liked it :) The only problem: you have to wait about 1 hour to eat your pizza so come before you're starving!

The service was decent and food was alright. We really wanted to try a deep dish pizza but was going to take 40 minutes to make it so we passed. We had Stromboli and calzones at our table. They were pretty good. Prices were reasonable.

Made it in on a Friday night during the busy hours. Got seated right away, 8 ppl in our group. Drinks were ordered and brought to us quickly. We ordered some french fries and mozzarella cheese sticks. Fries were good, typical fries and the cheese sticks were average cheese sticks. We ordered a 14" deep dish pizza meat lovers, gluten...
