Consistently in the National Top 3

I've eaten at the original location for decades, but I recently attended a concert in Auburn Hills and went to this newer location with some friends from out-of-state. It was every bit as good as the Conant spot that started it all !! My friends were skeptical about "yet another" pizza place, but... read more

Decent pizza, not outstanding as others have said. Not a true deep dish, thick bread crust with not a lot of sauce. Good service, interesting location and lots of history. Uber driver wondered where the heck we were going as the neighborhood is rather rough.

If your looking for an original deep dish square this is the place to go or even a buddys closer to your home. This is a place where you can pick your own small square the way tou like it and still take some home. This is not your ordinary pizza place this original is very unique and style.

Buddy's Pizza is the best. It was the best forty years ago, and it is the best today. Amazing crust, wonderful toppings, always hot and fresh out of the oven. It defines a whole genre of pizza -- Detroit pizza. Buddy's has several Detroit area location, and they are all great. The wait staff are always friendly and attentive, they... More

This place is always great. They have a Vegan pizza that is the bomb. They also have wonderful pasta. It is very consistent.

If you like Buddy's - try Louis in Hazel Park on 9 and Dequindre - Buddy's has significantly changed over the years - Louis has not - and it's a much better example of a true Detroit Style Pizza!!!

Buddy's was just ok...maybe my expectations were just too high but i would choose green lantern over buddy's any day. The parking lot was small but well lit and there was security so that was a plus especially since the neighborhood is very sketchy. The inside was bigger than it appeared to be from outside which was a plus, we... More
