As a local, I can highly recommend Bud's for great food and great service. Their pork chop Milanese is superb, their nightly specials, pizza and pasta are excellent. I find their prices are reasonable for the huge portions they serve. Bud's is our go-to place for family celebrations such as birthdays or anniversaries. Oh...I almost forgot to mention their INCREDIBLE... More

My son and his family took my wife and I out to Bud's place. Walking in the door, I had high hopes. It looked like a very popular place. We were quickly seated and the waitress give us a lot of warm attention. When I looked at prices, they ranged from a manicotti special at $8.95, to prime rib special... More

Bud's place is a local hangout with excellent pizza dominated by superior tomato sauce. The downside...cash only. But if you are passing through Owego with cash in your wallet and hunger in your stomach, try Bud's.

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.

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
