We've been going to Bud's for years. It's good, consistent and reasonably priced. Service is very good. Wish they took reservations but even when busy the wait isn't that long

Absolutely the best thin crust pizza anywhere, and I have had pizza in many places--around the world. This area has many Italian restaurants and is home to many Italian immigrants, so naming Buds as the best for pizza is saying a lot.

October 2015 Bud's has expanded the bar! Now there's room to eat at the bar; 20 barstools! Check it out! Largest bar in Apalachin!

The red original was some of the best pizza I've had. Very good place. Note: this is a cash only place so make sure to plan ahead.

Bud's Place is a small but inviting restaurant. They do not take reservations and do not accept credit cards, cash only. It has a plain decor but comfortable and very clean. They serve a variety of Italian Food but it is the Hot Pie, as they call it, that attracts us to visit them whenever we are in the area.... More

Four of us went here. Two had great dinners - pork chops. One had steak. Sort of bland. Not horrible but lacked taste and I had pizza. Pretty good. Not the best but pretty good. Just lacks some salt from what I can tell. And no just adding salt at the table is not the same as adding it to... More

We are locals, but have been away most of the year. We went today and wow, what a treat to have wonderful Italian food! Jenn was our server. She was personable, delightful and couldn't do enough for us! I was very impressed by her professionalism. We ordered the Spaghetti with White Clam Sauce (which is just about the best in... More

The food here is really good and priced right. They have one of the best white pizzas ever. Friendly staff too, a must for anyone looking for good food.

This place is always busy and the bar food is really good. They have team trivia once a week. Definitely a great place to meet up with friends after work or anytime.

Stopped by Bud's place during a recent stay in Owego for work. The warm inviting environment is great for casual meetings or for family/friends going out for a good meal. The pizza and pasta were both tasty. The only issue I had was that it is a cash only restaurant but they do have an ATM at Bud's. While it... More
