Buddy's Pizza is my favorite pizza. Buddy's is Detroit deep dish pizza (thicker than regular, not as thick as Chicago style pizza). A Detroit institution, it is one of the things that I miss now that I no longer live in Detroit. I always dine at a Buddy's whenever I am in the Detroit Metro area.

We used Trip Advisor to select this restaurant not knowing Buddy's was named one of the top 5 pizza places by the Food Network. We ordered one of their Super Pizzas and traded out the green pepper for the banana peppers, one of the Henry Ford, and a Gluten Free cheese pizza. Every pizza was outstanding. If you are a... More

Stopped here after a trip to Greenfield Village! Had a $4.00 coupon on the back of the ticket from the Village and looked at the ratings on Tripadvisor and knew it would be a winner! Was traveling with grandkids so a pizza type restaurant was a big hit. Prices were reasonable, the food and service was excellent. They had a... More

I had a coupon & a recommendation for this place. I was not sorry I used both! The pizza is wonderful! We did not get one of the "stock" pizzas from the menu, although they sounded wonderful, we put our own together & fell in love with Buddys. We went back for the pasta and ribs. Definately a must do... More

We were in the area visiting The Henry Ford Museum and noticed the great reviews for Buddy's. We went for dinner and were not disappointed. Great pizza, craft beers and the service was excellent. Although we did not try the other Italian dishes on the menu, they looked really good as others around our table did and if I went... More

I can't believe this was my first time to a Buddy's -- their house salad and pizza are terrific! Went with a large family group for a rehearsal dinner so no idea of the value, but the service was prompt, the family style servings were plentiful and they offered lots of containers for take home leftovers. Only downside was that... More

I have to say that I might think about Buddy's pizza more than I need to---because it is AWESOME!!!! I loved this pizza! I sat at the bar and ordered a small pizza and a glass of wine. Fabulous treat. The crust is amazing, the ranch was housemade (yes, I am that person), and the staff was cheery. I'll be... More

Ate here last when when on a campus visit to U of M - Dearborn. It was very good then so we had to go back again. It was equally good the 2nd time around. Last time it was winter so we ate inside, this time it was summer so we ate on the patio. It was very enjoyable. It... More

First visit to a Buddy's. The novelty is the square deep dish. They make a big deal that they put pepperoni under the cheese to enhance flavor and prevent burning, yet the "Detroiter" has it on top, which is the way prefer. They put sauce over the cheese instead of under, which is fine. The crust is a bit oily,... More
