I have been to Pizza Papalis a number of times growing up and the pizza stands up to any pizza place in the nation (I have tried pizza in New York, Chicago, and the list goes on). A small will feed two with some leftovers to spare. The only downside to Pizza Papalis is that this will be the pizza... More

The salads are generous, and the large sizes can feed 4 easily - whether antipasto or caesar [especially with chicken]. The thin crust pizza is the classic, but the addition of the thick crust and deep dish pizzas accommodate all of the preferences. The sauce is very slightly sweet reminiscent of my grandmother's pasta sauce with cinnamon. The delivery and... More

This is the best pizza I have ever had. It is worth every cent and calorie spent eating it. I have been eating their pizza for 11 years, so delish. Yes it takes a while to get your order, but when you bite into your first slice, you will understand that it is totally worth the wait. One bite and... More

The best deep dish pizza period. The serve up old school pizza not the ready in five minute no flavor you get from the fast food pizza places. Expect your pizza to take 45 minutes. Order a beer and have some relaxed conversation with your company.

On Monroe street near Greek Town Casino. Across from Pegasus. You must get the Pizza of course! I had never had the Chicago style. It is awesome. The dough is like pizza & pie crust. So filling. You will be lucky to eat 2 pieces. I have been there twice and thought both times that I could eat 2 and... More

Read some great reviews for this place and had a craving for pizza. Beer is cheap, pizza excellent (best - small deep dish could feed two people), wings so/so, and salad is poor. The place was packed, and the service was attentive and friendly. I would travel across Detroit on a bike to eat here again. Great experience.
