Detroit -- good pizza by the slice?

Are there any good pizza-by-the-slice destinations in the Detroit area? I don't need a whole pizza for the daily lunch getaway from the office. And I don't need a table for four either. I'm happy to eat a slice, if it's good, sitting in my car in the parking lot. My favorite is Capri Italian Bakery on Greenfield Rd in Dearborn, for its tasty sourdough crust. But I'm open to alternatives. Buddy's serves slices too, but they're pricey.

    Is that so? I never knew that. While Loui's in Hazel Park (no, they don't offer by-the-slice, unfortunately) is my all-time-fave, Buddy's is certainly no slouch in what I'd call a safe second place. But I never knew that they offered by-the-slice pizza for lunch.

    Nuts, Barkis. Now you've gone and gotten me all intrigued and stuff. ;)

      1. re: cherie

        I've never tried Primo's. Is it a chain? I'm biased against chains, although Baja Fresh is a guilty pleasure of mine for Mexican food. Local chains are fine though, like Buddy's. Even though Little Caesars and Domino's are locally based, their food is wanting. Especially Little Caesars. But I've never tried Primo's. Which one do you suggest I try?

      2. maybe its nostalgia, but i have a soft spot for square slices (and italian subs!) from buscemi's, a party store chain (about 30 locations), almost exclusively in macomb county. it's very doughy/bready. no crispy crust like buddy's/shield's/cloverleaf/louis'. thin layer of cheese. zesty sauce. ultra thin pepperoni. not the best. different, but decent.

        1. I like Brooklyn Pizza on Henrietta in Birmingham.

          xman - I grew up in Warren and know what you mean about Buscemi's....my sister and brother-in-law both worked there, so we'd get free pizza and subs all the time. It is good, too!
