Buddy's is a Detroit Area classic

Buddy's Pizza in Livonia offers excellent pizza and similar foods for a reasonable, price. The interior is nicely done, and not only small groups but larger groups can be accommodated. The pizza is very good, done on a nice thick crust which by itself would be a wonderful food.

Love the place, yet I am stuck on the mom and pop shops. THe pizza is good. I enjoy the salads and will keep going every few months. To me this is not the place to go every time you want pizza, but it is the place to get a good pie.

Buddys has a very unique crust. It's all deep dish buttery deliciousness. The rich Brick Cheese goes over the crust, then comes the toppings and sauce drissled on top of that. It's Soo delicious. They even have a very good Gluten Free version. The Antipasta Salad is a really great starter. We've been going there for years and have never... More

Sure, it's a little on the pricy side, BUT for any of the pizza/salad/buddy bread (with ranch dressing to kill for) it's worth it. I've never gotten a bad meal from Buddy's. Love it.

One of the best places for pizza in Michigan and combined with their greek or house salad, an excellent meal! Highly recommend - never been disappointed by anything other than a long line!

Buddies is a regular dining out place for my family and friends - especially on Thursday nights. I think Buddies has the best pizza in Detroit and we love going there on Thursdays especially for their awesome Long Island Iced Tea specials! Service is almost always very friendly.

Up to the original location's product, Buddy's does not disappoint. For purists, the "square" concept met be heretical, but it has a distinct advantage...no noticeable crust margins. Therefore, no possibility of some flabby flavorless lump of dough bordering on the good bits. The edge is crunchy and otherwise indistinguishable from the center. Bacon is sprinkled across the top, like a... More

Buddy's has a few locations in the metro Detroit area and I've been to two. Pizza is its specialty. The menu is varied as far as pasta, sandwiches and such -- I don't believe fine meats or seafood, though. I have had better pizza and much, much worse pizza. This is a popular family place, which is great, but things... More

What can I say. Buddy's is one of my favorites for pizza. I've tried several versions since visiting them since 2002. I can't say anything bad, one of the most consistent pizza parlors in the area and I've also tried several of there locations. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed.
