We love to go to Buddy's for Pizza and Buddy's salads. Be sure to try the Sausage, Pepperoni & Mushroom pizza.

The waitress was nice but incorrectly totalled our check, charging us $11 more before notifying us. The food was fine but not worth $20/plate. No flavor and tasted like it came from a jar. The hostess was in a basic blue t-shirt and gray sweats. Really? So unprofessional in what is priced to reflect a fine dining experience. I should... More

Buddy's was a delicious dining experience. Small, quaint ambiance. We felt welcomed at every turn. Try to get a seat in the front room/bar. Would eat there again!

We had sandwiches. They were not good. Waiter could hardly come and service our table. Felt like we were an imposition. I would not go back. Bad food and bad service don't add up to going back.

Busy place. Not fancy, dated design. Popular with locals. Prompt service. Keep our drink glasses full. Waitress advised us that we were ordering too much food for the four of us. Boy, was she right, and appreciated her advice to save us a few dollars. One salad could easily feed four. Excellent garlic dressing. Garlic bread was good. Had spaghetti... More

Went to Buddies for a Friday night dinner. Got a brew, placed my order, was told it would be 15 minutes. 60 minutes later, I left -hungry. The waitress was nowhere to be found the last 10 minutes. Some of the worst service ever at an old Pocatello standard. Found somewhere else to get a bite.

Buddy's salad with their local dressing specialty is to die for. This is a local favorite and the top Italian Restaurant in town. This is a restaurant with lounge area as well. The decor is nice with a family area for convenient dining with children. At times it an a lithe noisy as this is a very popular place in... More

I grew up in Pocatello. I have not been back very often in the past 20 years. I liked this place, especially the salads back then. So, we had a family event in Idaho this last weekend and I took my wife, children and a grandson to Buddy's. It is still good! My grandson said the best part of the... More
