Craving for pasties in metro Detroit

I have a craving for pasties. Google informs me that there are six pastie specialists in the metro Detroit area. Did Google miss any? Since none are especially nearby, can anyone suggest one that's worth the drive from Dearborn with $4/gal gas (sigh)? Thanks!
Barb's Pasties & Pizza, 610 S Main St, Clawson
Weldon's Pasties, 2123 15 Mile Rd, Sterling Heights
Jimmies Pasties, 33825 5 Mile Rd, Livonia
Mary Denning's Cake Shoppe, 8036 N. Wayne Rd, Westland
Geno's Pizza & Pasties, 24705 John R Rd, Hazel Park
Dobber’s Pasties, 402 South Stephenson Ave., Iron Mountain
Have you tried Ackroyd's Scottish Bakery in Redford? I think it's at 5 Mile and Beach-Daly. They have a fair amount of Scottish foods; meat pies, pork pies, steak pies. I'm pretty sure they also have pasties.
Google considers Iron Mountain in the metro Detroit area???
How about the Pasty Shop in Southgate on Northline?
Not too far from Dearborn...
The traditional ones there (they do have some alternative pasties like broccoli and cheese, etc, that I haven't tried) are the best I have had down state. I lived in the the U.P. for many years, so I know a good pasty when I eat one.
Toro, welcome to Michigan. A pasty--a Cornish meat pie often containing turnips or (my personal favorite) rutabagas--and a pastry are two very different things.
Believe it or not, in parts of Mexico where there were immigrants from Cornwall there are Mexican-style pasties.
I believe that Lawry's in Ishpeming, one of the great U.P. shops, now sells pasties online, but their website seems to be down. Try calling. Dobber's also sells online.
