Lions & Tigers & Squares serves Detroit-style pizza (i.e. rectangular pan pies with sauce on top of the cheese) in to-go boxes. You can only order a pie here, which consists of four thick slices and costs around $7. We like the classic a lot - the only problem is that there’s nowhere to sit down while you eat.
