There is pizza and there's Buddy's. If you love the square, deep dish style, ya gotta give them a try. Visit any of their many sites in the... More

The service here was exceptional, the food was great & the locals were a hoot. I was slightly nervous when I first saw the neighborhood however, there is a security guard for the parking lot. They are rated Detroit's #1 Square Pizza since 1946 & I know why. I tried the gluten free pizza Pepperoni & then the 5 Cheese... More

Deep dish pizza. Crust so flaky. Going since 1981. Best location. The original. Salads are great. All menu items excellent. Must try.

The pizza at the original Buddy's is the BEST anywhere; great antipasto too. They have a guarded parking lot.

Went for lunch- pizza is fabulous fabulous fabulous..... However, we went at lunch time (I brought a co worker from Ireland) - he asked me "why is there a man in the booth outside?". I let him know that's to ensure that we have a vehicle waiting for us when we're done. He loved that there were some signature t'shirts... More

I have heard of Buddy's for a while, well on a impulse we made the two hour drive to Detroit for lunch at the original Buddy's pizza. It was well worth the drive! They had so many choices on the menu, we ended up getting the meatball appetizer and two pizzas. The meatballs had a homemade taste to them and... More

The original deep dish pizza! This place has been my go to pizza shop for years, ever since I was about 3 years old. I couldn't remember the name at that age but my grandparents knew where to take me, I said, I want the thick pizza. The sauce is terrific and the pie is perfectly baked. The antipasti salad... More

I moved away from Detroit over 20 years ago. Every time that I come up to visit family the first stop is ALWAYS Buddy's. Nothing else compares to it. The crispy, buttery crust and sweet sauce mixed with the creamy cheese....ugh, it's amazing.
