If you're like me, and go to Detroit before Chicago, then you will consider the deep dish pizza here the most amazing deep dish pizza you have ever had in your life. I miss it terribly.

Loaded pizza. Deep dish seafood THE BEST. Weekends very crowded and the wait a little longer. But worth it.

If you are looking for a Chicago Style deep dish pizza, this is the place. 1 slice will satisfy any large appetite. I gave it a 4 rating for the deep dish pizza alone. If not for that, the place wouldn't rate a 1. Old dated atmosphere, untrained staff and not the cleanest place. Obviously it is not expected to... More

This is the best Pizza when it comes to deep dish Pizzas. If you are in Detroit, you have to try it. This is a very very casual place. The crust is phenominal. Place is very friendly. Great for families.

If you like Chicago style pizza and have been to Giordanos in Chicago, this place is for you. The location in Greektown is a nice old restaurant with good food and decent service

I don't get the hype about this place. The pizzas are bland and the crust mediocre - no where near Chicago or New York quality. I'd rather go to Dominos or Papa Johns than eat here again. The service was really not that great either and the young lady who showed us to our table didn't even say welcome or... More
