I can remember eating Buddy's Pizza MANY years ago and it's just as good today as it was then! Since I moved out of the area, it was a real treat coming to town for a special occasion and stopping at Buddy's.

I was in Auburn Hills for a conference and found this restaurant to be just what I was hoping to find. The location is convenient, easy to find, and delicious. The staff was friendly, service was great and the food, from the salad, rolls and pizza were impeccable. Also, the draught beer was very tasty. Would recommend this restaurant for... More

Great spot for an informal meal! The pizza is the best I have ever had. The original Detroit Style. Great casual dining for a friendly get together. Great selection of draft beers. The antipast salad is a good complement to the pizza. The food is good every time I'm there and the friendly, casual,atmosphere always makes you feel welcome and... More

We had a large family gathering and Buddy's was willing to accommodate us. Whats more they were one of only a few restaurants that was open on the evening of 1 January. Their service was very good and they catered to all the needs of a large, diverse group, even making a vegan pizza. I would like to rate them... More

Came here after another dreadful game by the Pistons. Ministrone soup decent but could have been hotter. Greek salad was very good. Square pizza was typical Buddy's. Sanders hot fudge browie could have been even better if the brownie was good. Should have gotten the puff. Prices great though. Service fast.

The crust is crispy like a grilled cheese when we were kids. It's never soggy because they put the sauce on top instead of seeping into the crust. The proportions of cheese are always right on. They have many different toppings to select from if you choose to build your own creation. Also, on weekdays (Mon-Fri) you can stop by... More

Very good pizza and salad. Service was excellent and quick. We visited the college just down the street for a regional high school athletic activity and I'm glad Buddy's was this close. An excellent alternative to the typical fast food places.

What great pizza! From the crust to the sauce and then you throw on the toppings, you have the best deep dish pizza. Then do not forget to have their antipasto salad with their home made salad dressing. Plan on getting there and have a drink in the bar area because it can be crowded but worth the wait!
