This is the 3rd time for us at Chef Buddy's. We always try to stop there when we're in the area. Nice selection of subs and sides and good pizza. They also have frozen entrees like spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, and stuffed shells to take home for dinner. Clean and airy, friendly wait staff, and good portions. You definitely should...

We love eating here. The food is great, the prices are reasonable and the staff is always very friendly. What's nice also is they will heat up any of their takeout meals so you could have it right then. Highly reccomend Chef Buddy's.

Took grands and family to eat at Chef Buddy's. Pizza was pepperoni and cheese, then two sandwich's and 1 salad. The pizza had a good deal of bread and took over 25 minutes to serve. The salad was delicious and fresh. The sandwiches were good, again a good deal of bread. They were served with chips; no fries available. Meat... More

Had a really nice lunch with friends at Chef Buddy's. Love a place that uses Boar's Head meats for their sandwiches! Also amazing bread and very nice staff. We will be back!

Great pasta, meats, wraps, anti-pasta, sides, with fun service. The ladies hustle with your order. If the crowd is large, the service is a tad slow. Reasonably priced, right in the heart of downtown Lake Placid, the Readers Digest's "most interesting town in America."

I was surprised at how much bigger it looks inside than from the outside. There is plenty to choose from on their menu from subs, pasta dishes, different salads and pizza. I ordered a simple ham and swiss sub and was pleasantly surprised at how very delicious it was. The ingredients were fresh and tasty but the bread was superb.... More

I ordered the Badabing Sub Sandwich, which had pastrami, Swiss, and coleslaw. I added tomatoes and jalapeños for a little kick. My wife ordered Tuna Salad sandwich. Considering that the other restaurants in Lake Placid place such an emphasis on local food, we were disappointed to find that the meats are Boar's Head supermarket type and the bread, while baked...

We were visiting Lake Placid and stopped here for a sub. The bread and food quality were excellent. We both remarked that there could be more meat on the subs. We sat outdoors at tables in the back. Very friendly service!

This was my wife and I's first visit. She had the "Buddy's special", I had the meatball sub with Peppers & onions. They came with a small cup of pasta salad (a nice touch). The food was delivered quickly, hot and excellent. Server's attitude was superb, especially since she was in a leg brace. We will definitely be back next... More
