By far the best pizza in the Nation!

Food Network, GQ Magazine and Parade magazine has given Buddy's pizza best in the nation status. I've know this for years, for I have been fortunate enough to grow up on this pizza. There was only one back then, the original on Conant, but now you can enjoy their pizza at 11 locations... read more

I grew up in the Conant Gardens area so the original Buddy's restaurant on Conant was a tradition. Great pizza, great service consistently that is all.

This review is short and sweet. Buddys is AWESOME! All Buddys locations are good, but this location is the original and has never lost its charm. Yes, it's in the heart of Detroit. Some may worry about the area, but dont. Detroit is a gem.

Oh yeah, I know what you are thinking. Detroit style pizza? Yes there is such a thing but it gets lost compared to Chicago and New York style pizza but it is there and it is real. Buddy's is the father or one of the originals of this style of thick square pizza with carmelized edges. Try it and you... More

Haven't been here for a while but the pizza is excellent and this is THE ORIGINAL BUDDY'S where everything started. Lots of room and service is good. Pizza is #1 in my book for sit down. Neighborhood is a little iffy but be extra careful and you should be OK.

I can see why Buddy's has won numerous awards for their pizza. They are always consistent. In my opinion, they are one (1) of the top pizza restaurants in Detroit. My family and I usually enjoy for pizza on a carry-out basis and I have difficulty getting in home when riding in the car. No visit to Detroit is complete... More

This is my favorite place to get pizza when visiting my family in Detroit. I love the thicker crust and the square pieces. I always get pepperoni!

Absolutely love this place! If you want to try the authentic Detroit square pizza, this is the place! The original restaurant is located in a once-thriving part of Detroit and has a bocce ball court outside. Get the pepperoni pizza!

I can't speak about the restaurant itself but I often get Buddy's delivered and I happen to love their pizza. Crust is buttery, halfway between deep dish and thin crust and its yummy! Not a lot of pizza sauce on the veggie which I adore. Large have 8 slices and 2 slices is more than enough for lunch or dinner....... More
