This 36 year establishment really gets customer service with great food to match, just let’s you know that every legacy restaurant doesn’t rest on its laurels. If you’re in downtown/greektown area, you have to check this place out!

If you are looking for the best stuffed pizza you will ever taste go here for sure. They never disappoint. The line may seem long but they seat you pretty quick so don't let the line intimidate you, it's busy for a reason.

Their deep dish pizza is always a treat. We had 8 of us gather for dinner before a hockey game. We ordered two large deep dish pizzas (bacon cheeseburger and spinach special). It was really too much for us to eat. The deep dish pizza...More
