If you want deep dish or pan make sure you plan for at least an hour wait. We went with the flat crust but it did not disappoint. Portion was huge, we got a small between my wife and I and we barely got through half. Service was good and our wait was very friendly.

We came in here after The Black Keys Concert, after seeing all the great reviews we figured we would give it a try. We were not disappointed the Wings were absolutely fantastic tender fall of the bone, the Pizza was just as good you get what you pay for as a small was more than enough for two of us.... More

The pie is great, I love the thin crust, out for control good. The ranch dressing is perfect, it's the best addition to a pizza so it's a must. Place is big and the restrooms are clean. Never have had bad service here one time, never have been disappointed in the food.

The pizza is to die for. True deep dish, but if you don't order in advance you'll be waiting about 40 minutes for an order. Casual atmosphere. Also, the pizza is not cheap.

Great pizza, especially if you like deep dish pizza. The Meat Lovers and the Spinach are wonderful. Also, very good service.

Had the VIP pizza and it was awesome! A true deep dish as its about 3 inches thick and definitely a pizza to share. Also great location in Greek town in downtown Detroit. Very recomended if you are hungry and looking for a good pie.

Was in Chicago a few days before and compared the deep dish...Papalis is by far better than anything we found in Chicago. Great service and awesome spot.

I'm a huge fan of Giordano's Chicago Pizza and am always looking for something similar when I travel. Pizza Papalis was one of the closest I have found to true Chicago deep dish pizza and the Greektown location was convenient to our hotel and travels. The staff was friendly and our additional items such as the cheese sticks and garlic... More

the best plan to avoid the terrible ball park food, but you need some major time. Plan on it taking 45 min-hour to get your pizza after you order it. It is worth it!
