The original Buddy's location, that has been serving Detroit deep dish pizza since 1947. Great place to have Detroit style pizza. Friendly and prompt service. Good pizza!

Step into this place and you enter a bygone era. Get yourself a 4-square or an 8-square Detroit-style pizza. I got a Detroiter and it was very good. There's parking at the side.

Very nice servers and the food was higher quality. Square pizza is filling and good flavor. The atmosphere is nice and welcoming and even at a busy time seating was fast and parking wasn't too bad.

Authentic and reasonably priced. Great place to be introduced to Detroit style pizza. Some of the best pizza I've had. Light and not greasy. Also recommend Buddy's signature brew.

This is the original Buddy's restaurant. Great, Detroit-style (deep dish with the toppings under the cheese and sauce) pizza. Great place for families and to celebrate for any reason. Great service and with a smile.

I have been going to Buddy's since 1969. And they are the best pizza on earth. I wish I still lived near there so I could go.

Really enjoyed the coney pizza and the Henry Ford. The waitress was fantastic. If you want a wide variety of choices and super friendly staff, this is the place to go!

Had the Detroiter pizza and an antipasto salad. Pizza was cheesy, with a crunchy crusty and soft interior, slightly spicy sauce. Salad was loaded with cheese, salami and ham. Could be a meal in itself with those yummy breadsticks.

Not only is this the best pizza in Detroit, as far as I'm concerned it's the only pizza worth eating in Detroit.. I understand there's other locations, but as with anything else, the original is typically the best and that's what I'm gonna believe in this case.. Had a few of the pizzas, really liked the margarita, seasonings are delicious,... More
