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

Since childhood this has been one of my favorite places. To this day, when I drive home to visit, this is on the list of places I HAVE to go. Seriously, it should be on one of the travel shows where people go places just to have the "best of". The service has always been amazing, and the environment is... More

Best Pizza in the area. A little more pricey compare to all the chain ones around here but worth every penny. The Detroiter is awesome and they also have Gluten free dough but it's not the same.

If you come to Michigan and want pizza, Buddy's is still the best. There are a couple of other restaurants that are more than adequate substitutes but Buddy's is still number one. My kids come home from Virginia and this is the pizza they want. Salads are very good, too. I've been going to Buddy's for 40 years and although... More

Buddy's is an old Detroit institution, a perennial favorite. The most famous pizza they have is the deep dish.....never fails to please. Salads are generous and the dressings tasty. Service is good and friendly. They aim to please! Gluten free pizza is also an option. Never had it but I am sure it is good because anything that comes out... More
