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.

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

Best pizza in town. We carry out and dine in. Very clean and friendly staff. The prices are good. We enjoy the pizza buffet. Great way to taste the pizza to see which one you like best. They have good salads and sandwiches too.

Great place to eat with the family and be able to watch sports. They have a few tvs so you won't miss your favorite game! They have a good selection in their menu! Have a nice bar area if you want to go hang out there.

We went there because the location was convenient and we wanted pizza. Everything was wonderful: atmosphere, service, pizza, price. We will return.
