Once again I love this place for their pizza! I even like that 12 & under the kids can create their own pizza & they bake for them. But the seating upstairs they placed us in was cramped...the service was sub par.....and very noisy. It was hard to hear each other talking while we waited 45 minutes for our food.... More

We visited before a Tigers game this summer. The deep dish was as good as advertised. I have had Ginos East, Malnati's etc.It's the best I have had outside of Chicago. The service was good and the atmosphere was too.

We had a great time in Detroit and finished it off with great food. I ordered a Stromboli which was excellent and very filling my wife had the lasagna and wouldn't even share a bite we ordered a pizza to bring home for dinner and it was amazing too

This chain sucks. It's overpriced, and their business plan of making pizzas pretty much means u wait 45 minutes for a pie. Stay far away.

Had a deep dish pizza and huge salad. Prices were appropriate. Don't over order on pizza because 1 piece is almost equivalent to 2 or 3 normal slices. Very good restaurant

Pizza is cook to order. Chicago pizza takes about 40 minutes to prepare, call ahead to order if you are hungry! You will be full.

Incredible deep-dish pizza. Expect to wait a bit for your pie but know that it's well worth it. Also expect to take home leftovers-these pies are massive! Service was great as was the food. Don't miss out on Detroit's best pizza.

This place is a Detroit institution, and the pizzas are usually amazing (especially great for left overs heated up the next day), but last visit was a little disappointing, despite the friendly service. - What we ordered: deep dish spinach pizza - What we got: dough and cheese with a couple of leaves of spinach... We went early dinner on... More
