Any way you slice it, The Green Lantern is an old school, neighborhood bar and pizza parlor. Those of us who work here in our original Madison Heights location take pride in being part of a pizza parl...or that’s one of the very best anywhere. We invite you to make yourself at home and take-in a relaxed atmosphere where the walls are filled with sports memorabilia and old family photos… just like home.
Here, making pizza is a family tradition that goes back 55 years when Thomas and Irene Vettraino bought an old farmhouse bar along with its green lantern. They passed along their savory pizza recipe to their daughter, Marlene, who is the present owner. She, along with everyone here, works hard to ensure that every pizza pie is a culinary delight made with love that leaves a lasting impression from the very first, mouth-watering bite.
For generations, folks have enjoyed our delicious pizza and the friendliness of an environment where most patrons are known by their first name. We, too, have been recognized, being named “the best pizza in Detroit” by Channel 4 News, “best pizza” by the Daily Tribune for over 25 years and even received the Reader’s Choice Award from the Metro Times.
Along with pizza, we serve scrumptious chicken strips and subs that feature our World Famous Cole Slaw. We also offer delectable cheese bread that makes a great appetizer while you’re waiting for your pizza. In addition to our Madison Heights location, we now have a Royal Oak carry out that features a mouth-watering deep-dish square pizza that’s made to perfection every time.
