There lasagna is the best. We order it by the tray for parties or large family gatherings. You will not be disappointed with any item from the menu. There meats are good too. Try the filets for grilling. If you stop by for lunch, try the meatball sandwich, Italian sausage sandwich is also excellent. The seating area is small, so... More

The meatball sub is too good to be true. I also love the roast beef, and the spaghetti and meatballs is delicious. Everything I've ever tried here has been great. Nice place with great staff. Definitely family friendly.

Chef Buddy's is under new ownership but lives up to the Original Chef Buddy. New and improved location, wonderful staff, and the same great food.

I've been meaning to write this review for a while but life has kept me busy. Now that summer is here now is a good time as ever. I visited Chef Buddy in February of 2014 because it was recommended by a local and seeing as we were new in town we wanted to try something new and local. We... More

You'll be a fan as well once you've tried their sandwiches. The rolls come in from NJ frozen and baked on premises. Meats are fantastic as well. Put it all together and you've got the Chef Buddy ultimate. Fresh basil, mozzarella, sun dried tomatoes, and fresh deli meats with the delicious crunch of that bread roll. Yum. Homemade sausages, meatballs,... More

The quality of the meats, the "fixings" on the subs, the bread is always fresh and of wonderful quality, Sandwiches come with a side of homemade pasta salad, which is an additional treat. Their new location is spacious, bright and accomodating

My friend and I had lunch at the new location of Chef Buddy's on a busy Friday. We ate at an outdoor table on a rear patio because the dining room was crowded. The weather was so pleasant that this was an excellent choice. My friend had the meatball sub and I enjoyed the Buddy's Special Italian sub. Both were... More
