Some of the best pizza I've ever had

I was searching for good pizza places in Detroit online and came across Buddy's, which has several locations in and around Detroit and has been serving Sicilian style pizza since 1946. I should probably preface this by saying that I don't usually like deep dish unless I'm in Chicago, but I heard... read more

In a busy area near a major hospital, so you have to compete with the workers to get service. The wait is not very long, but very much worth the wait in the quality and taste.

Buddies is continuously rated and voted as the best pizza in Detroit, but I prefer to pass on the pizza. It's simply to greasy for me. And after an hour, I regret eating their pizza. If your thinking it maybe just my problem, I eat many other chain pizzas with no issue. It's just the amount of oil due to... More

This is "The" signature Detroit pizza. Buddy's is a staple of Detroiters'. The atmosphere is one of family. The servers are knowledgeable, as well as nice and efficient. Great pizza. Oh and you can have a game of Bocci ball while you enjoy your food.

Ordinary pizza from Buddy's that lots of people rave about means somebody didn't try Louis pizza on Dequindre. The help at Buddy's is OK but the product is what's most important.The sauce at Buddy's is nothing to write home about,besides the original owner copied his recipe from Shields,they're both the same.

We have been going to Buddy's for many, many years. We've had birthday parties there as well as other celebrations. Always good food and reasonable prices. The service is good and quick. My only negative comment is that it is such a popular place, there can often be a lengthy wait for a table. Other than that, we love this... More

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.
