We have had pizza at Buddy's every time we go to Auburn Hills shopping for the last 3 years and it never disappoints.

The 'Lake Ontario' may be the best pizza I have ever eaten! Never mind the local outlet shopping, Buďdy's is wòrth the ďrive from Ontario. I will return, and highly recommend.

This place has a very good variety of pizzas and hamburgers. I've been a couple times here trying both pizzas and hamburgers and definitely I would go with the pizza for my future visits.

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.
