We stopped here after a Christmas pre-school program down the block, so there were four adults, a 2 1/2 yr. old toddler and a baby. We were seated quickly and found the staff to be very friendly. The restaurant is part sports bar and on the other side is a restaurant area, so if you don't want to watch TVs... More

My wife and I have been here numerous times. The pizza is outstanding and the bartenders are always on top of things. We almost always eat in the bar area to enjoy the food, drinks and sports on TV. You will not go wrong here.....it is always excellent.

My wife and I love to stop by Buddyz for a few drinks and pizza and appetizers. The bartenders are always very friendly and it has a great atmosphere. We usually dine in the bar area but have brought the family for pizza in the restaurant area. Never had a bad experience at Buddyz!

I always say pizza should be sold by weight not inches. They have great crust and load it up real well! All must try the Butter Crust Pan Pizza for a treat. The bar is nice with a assortment of food and drink specials and several TV's to watch. I look forward to are next visit to try another menu... More

We heard that Buddyz had very good pizza. So on a Sunday late afternoon, we visited the Algonquin bar/restaurant. The hostess and servers were very friendly and welcomed us as we entered. They have a restaurant area and a bar with tables. The place is also full of TV's showing sporting events, so I guess you can categorize it as... More

I know many people who love this place but I am not one of them! Almost every time our pizza comes out partially burnt or at the very least over done. When the pizza is cooked correcting it is good but there is no consistency. We do like their salads a lot though. Our other complaint would be to many... More

Me and my husband come here about twice a month. My husband's fav food is pizza. Buddy Z's is tied with our other fav pizza place which is in Crystal Lake. The deep dish is just fabulous and has the nicest buttery crust that we have ever tasted. We love the thin crust pizza too. The man that bartends is... More

My husband and I are so enamoured of Buddyz's that we go once a week. The atmosphere may be lacking--it is in a strip mall (interior decoration changes are currently being made)---but the friendly servers and delicious food more than make up for it. It is not unusual for the owner to deliver your pizza to the table; the bar... More
