Buddy's Pizza is my favorite pizza. Buddy's is Detroit deep dish pizza (thicker than regular, not as thick as Chicago style pizza). A Detroit institution, it is one of the things that I miss now that I no longer live in Detroit. I always dine at a Buddy's whenever I am in the Detroit Metro area.

My husband and I try to have Buddy pizza (either dine in or take out) whenever we are close to the area - even though it means 5 miles out of the way from I-75. Love the crust and the different flavors. They also have several selection of gluten-free pizza which are actually delish! Buddy Detroit-style Pizza is quite legendary... More

From the Antipasto salad to the large Deep Dish Pizza, it's by far the best pizza In the Metropolitan Detroit area. Not sure why they haven't ventured out of Detroit, but I hope it happens soon

If you haven't had the pleasure of Buddy's Pizza in the Detroit area, you are truly missing out. I don't live in the area any more, and every time I visit I schedule time to get a pizza from Buddy's. Their menu even has gluten and dairy free options so they accommodate a variety of diets. The service is pretty... More

Great pizza, salads, drinks and service. If you like a deep dish pizza then I am sure you would love this. It's not the only place we go for pizza but we try to make it here every once in a while because it's a craving.

Buddy's has about the best pizza around! Very informal atmosphere. The waitress did not submit the order expeditiously but she apologized and there was fair compensation. Buddy's pizza must be tried by everyone visiting the area. The interior slices are better than the corner slices. It was the first time dining at this particular location, but the pizza has always...

Having grown up in the area I kind of took this place for granted, but now I make it a point to visit on every trip home. Even though I prefer thick and Chicago style pizza, the creativity, taste and ingredient quality that Buddy's offers gives Detroit a good look (and taste).

The parking lot is too small, and they only have access from Plymouth Road, and it's by a traffic light, but not right at the light, meaning you can't get out of the parking lot at rush hour, unless somebody lets you out. If they could add access to Farmington Road, that would solve the problem. They need to negotiate... More

Salads are wonderful too. The not so good: First visit waitress was good. Very attentive and quick. Second visit waitress not so good.... More

Casual dining at a local restaurant my wife and I were a little disappointed. I had pizza, their specialty, and she had the romaine anti-pasta salad. My pizza was pretty good. My wife's salad had no romaine but only iceberg(which is cheaper). Disappointing. The waitress did want to replace after the fact. I felt her meal should have been deducted.... More
