A group of 10 of us were strolling through Greek town and ended up stopping here for dinner for our friendsgiving. When we arrived they told us it was about an hour wait. We sat at the bar and we drank and enjoyed $10.00 pitchers of beer. We ended up ordering a deep dish from the bartender while we waited.... More

This is always the destination for my teenage son and I when we drive in from Grand Rapids for a Tigers game. Nothing special or fancy, just great pizza!

Service was good and so was the pizza. Not very busy, fast seating and friendly staff. We visited on a Sunday after a Red Wings game.

Best thick crust pizza I tried outside of Chicago. It is very filling so I recommend to go here hungry. The service is a bit slow but ok. Didn't try the appetizers or dessert since we were already full:)

This is our second time experiencing Pizza Papalis and man was it even better! We were running late so we decided to try delivery straight to our hotel (Crowne Plaza). We used their website and after a quick confirmation call it was delivered within the hour. Not sure who the girl was but she was crazy friendly and gave us... More

This restaurant is just a block away from Greektown casino. They have really good deep dish pizzas and a good "Michigan Mary" cocktail. However, the service was not fast or friendly. Also, it takes 45 for them to make one of their famous deep dish pizzas. Might be worth a try as long as you aren't in a hurry!

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
