Best pizza in Detroit

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

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

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
