We have been to the Livonia Buddy's so many times I can't guess how many. Buddy's Caesar Salad and their Caesar dressing is the best in Detroit, hands down, no contest. Rich, thick, plenty of garlic, anchovy, lemon juice, The romaine is always all deep green, and chilled, shaved fresh parmesan, in house made croutons, with a wedge of lemon... More

Buddy's pizza is a frequent dinner stop for us. We dine there with our immediate family as well as with extended family. We always order the anti-pasta salad (superb) and a pepperoni and supreme pizza (amazing, delicious crust). Great atmosphere and friendly service. You won't be disappointed!

Buddy's makes a great Detroit style pizza....but the Cloverleaf makes the best. Both originated in the same place, but the expansion of the Buddy's chain dropped the quality just a bit...

Love the variety of toppings and pre-arranged pizzas. The antipasto salad is fabulous. The breaded cauliflower is really good. The experience of eating at Buddy's - no matter what location - is wonderful and fulfilling.

About 10 of us went to Buddy's for lunch and had an excellent meal with good service. We started with a few orders of garlic bread with cheese, then 3 pizzas to share. The meat pizza was the way to go, although they were all excellent. At this point I assume everyone knows what Buddy's pizza is like, but it... More

If you want to try Detroit style pizza this is the place to go. And they have delicious salads. Service is good, pizzas are prepared to order so it takes a couple of minutes, and it is a nice family friendly place to go. Got to try it to make your world-wide pizza quest complete.( You know, Chicago, New York,... More

We tried a regular Buddy's 4-square Pizza. It comes in a 4 or 8 square (8x10 0r 16x10 inches) size. It was phenomenal! Was it NY? No Was it Chicago? No Was it outstanding? YES! A crust that is crisp on the bottom, and almost deep dish. Really good sauce and toppings. To go along with this we had a... More
