Buddy's is a Detroit favorite, delicious square deep dish pizza. Several locations, good prices, and nice atmosphere.

This is great, fresh deep dish pizza what a longtime history in Detroit that began decades ago on Conant and 6 Mile. Love this nearby location- like a neighbor friend with great service and continued attention to quality. The antipasto salad combined with a pizza makes a great meal for family or friends. Being near OU makes it convenient to... More

I went with my wife and some friends. 8 in total, and we all enjoyed it very much. Restaurant was clean, service was quick and food was delicious. We all had pizza, and then we ordered several appetizers. Wings, meatballs, and salads. There are no complaints and will definitely be visiting here again next time we are in auburn hills.... More

I was in town working the Pistons game and wanted to try some good pizza. Saw that it was rated number 1... Good pizza, I had the New Yorker. I recommend checking it out if in town. Very friendly staff!!!

Luckily, I live around the corner from one of the Buddy's location. The best Detroit style pizza in town! The crust is crunchy and the sauce is perfect, not too sweet or overpowering. The staff is friendly and always gracious. This is the place I take visitors for a real Detroit pizza experience.

Excellent pizza - 8 square enough for 3. Crust is crispy and the sauce is excellent with the pepperoni under the cheese. Was even great heated up the next day. Definitely thumbs up! The red house wine was great too!

The pizza is wonderful, lots of great toppings and cheese. I wish I lived closer so I could experience the deliciousness often! The Antipasto can't be beat, what a great combination!

Pizza was wonderful - very filling, I could only eat two squares! They also had a nice beer selection to wash the pizza down. Another member of the party had a sandwich and it looked great.

Very good pizza; they live up to their claim as one of Detroit's Best Pizza Places! Lots of choices for toppings. They have good salads as well. The "Small" is actually big enough for 2-4 persons. If you just want a small one for yourself, order a "Side" salad; that should be the right portion.

Thank floRDMichigan
