Pizza Papalis is definitely a Detroit favorite and needs no introduction. If you love pizza you love Pizza Papalis, there's no two ways about it. The pizza here is so good that you have to be prepared for a wait to get your order, but rest assured the end result is totally worth the wait. The deep dish pizza is massive - three slices will satisfy even the biggest of the big eaters. Besides their famed deep dish pizzas, try the salads, the pasta or the garlic bread. With the amount of cheese, meat and spices generously spread on your pizza it's best to go with a huge group and yes, forget about your diet too. The hours are for summers only.
This place is a Detroit icon, they have the best deep dish (Chicago style) pizza in town. The meat lovers is a classic and the seafood is the most unique pizza I've ever had. Prepare to spend some time it takes time to bake perfection.
Everytime we go downtown we stop at Pizza Papalis, perfect after a Tiger's game, the casino, or anywhere else you go. On weekends there is usually a wait, but it is well worth it. I was one to not like pizza much, but after eating here, I get cravings for it!!!!!
The pizza is worth the wait and you will wait - usually a good 45min - 1 hour on a Friday or Saturday night. The location is also excellent because it's close to Greektown Casino - right across the street. The salads are not that good - caesar salad consists of lettuce and sprinkled parmasean cheese on top - that's it. But the pizza is authentic Chicago Style THICK pizza!
