Someone at work today mentioned a place called Tania's in Royal Oak.  Proverbial light bulb went off in my head.

First house was in RO between 12 & 13 and Main & Crooks.  Best pizza nearby was Nero's at 13 & Main but they sold the place and the pizza was never the same.  Sold the house in '91 but remember trying Tania's pizza (13 & Crooks) thinking it was pretty good.  

Still there after 30 years and on my to-do-again list

Tania's

I've had Tania's a handful of times. Lots of people rave about it but I don't really find it that great. It's edible for sure. The catch is that it's a "stuffed" pizza, and those aren't really common around here and so I think people think it's awesome. It's basically just a regular ol' round pizza with another crust/dough on top. Everything about the pizza itself is quite average.

Occasionally I will get a hankerin for a stuffed pizza (I love the one they make at Spagnuolo's) and other than Tania's one of the only places around here that I can find that makes one is Georgio's in downtown Rochester. It's pretty good and their pizza is pretty quality overall. My only problem with Georgio's is they won't make their stuffed pizza to order. It comes with ham, genoa salami, pepperoni, Italian sausage, meatballs and provolone. Period. Not my select set of ingredients.

On another note, if you haven't tried Crispelli's, it's very good. I picked some pizza and other food up from there for Mother's Day. I didn't realize until I went to pick up that they also make a Detroit style. I will be trying that at some point in the not too distant future.

And on another note, Gumby's in EL is closing. I guess it's now Goombah's?

Their pizza was always sub par but they were the only ones delivering untiil 4 AM. And Pokey Stix.

I don't understand. This reeks of bullshit. Even in Dearborn, did this guy think Little Caesar's was gonna source some Halal beef pepperoni? Did they claim it was Halal beef pepperoni? I think once you saw the red fucking pepperoni you would realize it was standard LC 'roni and not eat it. Beef pepp is darker. A chain like LC is not gonna go out of their way and source Halal beef pepperoni.

Gotta give another prop to Buscemi's. Been bored with chicken salads available everywhere. They were cool taking my order for a salad not on the menu.

Were somewhat amused but seemed to be seriously thinking when I picked it up and said they should put it on the menu. I named it the Philly Cheesesteak Salad:

Lettuce mix
Rib-eye (used on their steak subs)
Provolone
Onions
Green pepper
Mushrooms

Was delicious with Italian dressing on the side

Cheesesteak salad was good, considering they made it for first time, but needs some work next time.

Steak was sliced too thin, chopped too small, and not medium rare like I asked. Provolone was cut too big, as were the mushrooms. Green pepper and onions were sliced about right.

17 & Ryan used to just be an independent liquor store IIRC until they slapped a Buscemi's sign on it about 6-7 years ago. I wouldn't really consider it a Buscemi's, and I bet a Buscemi's doesn't even bother to inspect the quality.

Yeah. Nothing about that store seems clean.
