Always the best!

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.

The pizza is great and the service has been good as well. The antipasto salad is the perfect accompaniment.

I hadn't been to Buddy's in awhile so we decided to give it a try. I usually go for the Hawaiian style but decided to try the BBQ instead. There are two sauces to try and they were supposed to put 1/2 on one side and half on the other. When it came out there was only one sauce so... More

Buddy's has been a part of the Detroit area forever. Pizza places tend to be "a dime a dozen" but Buddy's stands above the rest. They "build" their pizzas better! I have never liked the "sauce sandwich" pizzas sold at most places. Here the sauce is an integral part of the pizza, but it isn't slopped on. The crust, cheese... More

Buddies pizza is a "Detroit classic" and has been in the Detroit area since the late 40s. We go to Buddies occasionally. Their margurita pizza is our favorite. The service is always great, the beer ice cold and the pizza is wonderful. We also love their antipasto salad. It's very much of a family atmosphere and always busy. They also... More

Great family pizza place. Good choice of drinks full bar and good service. The pizza is awesome but if you'd rather you can order something else from the menu. I have moved out of the area and that is one of the places I miss
