Buddy's has been a Detroit favorite for over 50 years. If you like several of the copycats out there, you will love the "grandfather" of all pizzas. It's the special cheese blend, crunchy crust and fresh combinations that make this pizza memorable. Paired with your favorite beer...it's a winner. They also have other menu items for your pleasure. 11 lications... More

I'm here on a buisness Trip so of course I've been browsing for places to eat. I came here based on the raving reviews - and was NOT dissapointed! Words can not describe how amazing this pizza is. I would drive out of my way to come here. Try it out!

I visited this location with my four children and brother. The kids had fun playing the kid placemat games while we selected delicious pizza and a Greek salad that was big and fabulous. The service was great, the atmosphere was very family-friendly and everyone left happy.

Very large group of us met and they had a whole section to seat us. Typical Pizzeria but the food was very good. Staff was busy but kept up with our food and drink refills. They setup the pizza on buffet table so it made it easy for everyone to go up and get the type and amount you wanted.... More

I love Buddy's pizza. Their square pizza has a perfect crust- crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. I really enjoy the roasted garlic as a topping. The buddy bread is also very good. My husband loves the lasagna. The antipasta salad is also really good. Their housemade dressing for it is excellent!

Buddy's has the best pizza, hands down. We ordered the margherita pizza. It was outstanding. The crust is excellent. Be sure to try the Buddys rolls as well. You won't be disappointed. The atmosphere at this location is great; the old time pictures on the walls were very interesting. The service is excellent. Our server was fantastic.

Love, love, love Buddy's pizza. Didn't realize how much we loved it and took it for granted (forgive us, Buddy's) until we moved away from the Detroit Metro area. Deep dish elsewhere is just not the same. Crusts are crunchy and delicate, toppings are not dumped on, tomato sauce is placed underneath for a hidden treat as you bite in.... More

I have never had Buddy's before but heard good things about it. The service was really good and he helped us decide what to get. Got the Detroiter pizza and it was so good. The sauce and crust was unique. Can't wait to go back and get it again

I thought the meat pizza was greasy and lacked sauce. I thought the sauce lacked seasoning and tasted like pure tomato paste. The fried mushrooms were very good though.
