He's the king of pizza making and has the best fish fry.
Tony DeRango, of DeRango the Pizza King, knows how to make a pizza, but he's got a pretty mean fish fry too. Patch ran a weeklong poll to see who has the best fish fry in the Caledonia, Mount Pleasant and Sturtevant area. DeRango's restaurant, 4621 6 Mile Road, was among seven area restaurants that earned a nomination. The restaurant received 43 out of the 125 votes cast. Second place went to Culver's, which received 25 votes. We'd like to thank everyone who came out to the polls. We know you probably appreciated the fact that no identification was required and no one made you sign a poll book before you had the ability to vote. Visit Patch again next week to cast your vote for the best daycare center.
