Be prepared to wait because everything is made to order, but the wait is so worth it! Come hungry and leave stuffed to the gills.

The VIP is fantastic and really substantial. More than any regular pizza. You probably need to downsize unless you want leftovers. The crust is really good. A little more crunchy than doughy.

Great "industrial" ambiance with exposed brick and duct work. Friendly, smiling staff -- that's where the good news ends. Please clean this restaurant! Dirty booth, dirty table, dirty stand (see picture) that black smudge is filth -- wiping your hand across anything is gross. The bread sticks were cold. It wasn't very busy but our food took a very long... More

Chicago type pizza in the heart of Detroit. Good service usually, great location downtown, a place to go if you are in Greektown!

Was given excellent recommendations for this place as well as supposedly #4 in the US? Well I love pizza, could eat it almost every day, but was disappointed for the high expectations. It was good don't get me wrong but I've some better. Breadsticks we're so-so. The cheese bread was very good though. Probably won't go back.
