Consistently Great Pizza

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

This place has the best thick crust square pizza. Not a true Italian thin style pizza but still tasty. Come here with friends and when you feel like eating a lot of greasy yummy pizza. Order a salad on the side and pretend it is healthy for you :-)

The pizza is one of the best around. The salads are also wonderful. The atmosphere is very electric. Can't wait to go again.

Best pizza restaurant in the area. The Detroit style pizza can't be beat. Make sure you order an anti-pasto salad. Try house ranch dressing. Awesome! The only disappointment was the cheese sticks. Too dry for my taste.

I'm use to the NY style pizza (large, round, thin crust) so this was a pleasant surprise. We started with a family size salad. It was served in a large bowl, fresh, and just the right amount of dressing. The pizza (square and thick) came next and it too was excellent. We ordered two different kinds, and I'm not sure...
