Very Good Pizza

We came here on April 19 at about 3pm. It was busy but not crazy. We waited for about 5 minutes before anyone acknowledged us to be seated. Once seated the service was fine and the 8 slice pizza (3 toppings) was very good. Other than the wait, it was exactly what we were expecting.

You really can't miss with Buddy's. The pizza is really good: great chew on the crust, good sauce, and really fresh toppings. We always get a salad, and they are good, too. Great place to take a group, or kids. The service is fast and friendly.

When you go to Buddy's, you can count on two things...great food and great service! The pizza is delicious, but don't overlook the pasta. Buddy's mac and cheese is fantastic! The atmosphere is family friendly, and the service is always excellent. Buddy's takes great pride in their food and restaurant, and it is obvious is everything they do! If you... More

I LOVE Buddy's pizza and their salad is even better! It's a must try restaurant! My family has been going to Buddy's for more than 20 years. Even though we don't live in the Detroit area any longer, it is a MUST STOP BY when we do come back to the area!

The Detroit Style pizza was new to me, but I liked it a lot. Thicker than normal, but not deep dish, this pizza had a good crispy crust and a great amount of cheese. I was there for a casual wedding rehearsal dinner, and the servers did a great job timing the food and keeping us very happy.

Buddy's pizza is delicious. Quality ingredients cooked to perfection. By far the finest Detroit style pizza around. If you're ever in Dearborn, you have to go to Buddy's.

Buddy's makes excellent "Detroit Style" pizza. "Detroit Style" pizza is a tasty rectangular pizza with crispy edges with generous amounts of "brick" cheese. The sauce is delicious and there is a nice garlicky flavor in the pizza. The thickness is thinner than Chicago Deep dish and thicker than NY style, California style, or traditional Italian "thrown" crust. If you've never... More

Great salad! We were there with two families after visiting Ford all day. We had a hungry and tired crew.... And left happy! The pizza was perfectly tangy and garlicky. Wait staff was helpful and had smiles on their faces despite crowds. Game room made kids happy:)

It's hard to walk into a pizza place as a first-timer and know what to order: receiving the right size depends on crust, sauce, and toppings. Pick a tiny one, most places overbake it and you leave hungry. Order too much, and you overpay and have leftovers for a week (and garlic smelling fridge). These folks have done it well.... More
