One of the best pizza places in all of metro-Detroit

Buddy's is some of the best pizza around. The original location on Conant is not in the best neighborhood but its really easy to get to off the Davison Freeway. Its worth the drive!

I love this location, not in the greatest neighborhood but authentic Detroit. The parking lot is secure and the food is worth the trip. Gotta love the bocce ball court!

Having grown up near the original Buddy's, I was surprised to learn there were other pizza palaces. I say palaces because Buddy's is the monarch of places that sell pizza. Just finished dinner: three pieces of the Huron on a multi grain crust. The crust nice a crisp and loaded with spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes. It gets no better.

This is the ORIGINAL BUDDY'S and is worth checking out. Always good service and secure parking. Easy to get to at a cross street just off the Davison Freeway.

Pizza is personal. Everybody knows what will do for them when it comes to baked dough and assorted toppings. For my husband and I no matter where we've traveled and eaten "pizza" Buddy's is the standard to which every other is compared. Consistency, quality ingredients and versatility make Buddy's pizza's as good as a pizza can get.

The service is always quick and polite. Depending on what is going on in Detroit at the time your wait-person will probably be in touch with the sports scene. The antipasto salad to the perfect go with to the pizza.

Buddy's is a great Detroit institution. Founded in 1946, they serve the best pizza I have had anywhere.

I grew up in NJ and have lived in NY for over 20 years, so I've had a lot of pizza -- good and bad -- in my life. I'm happy to say the pizza I had at Buddy's (there are many locations in the Detroit area and suburbs) is quite high on my list of yummy pizzas. There are... More
