Cute place. Friendly staff. Yummy burgers and salads. Service a tad slow even though they were not busy.

Fries are fresh & edible & online ordering was easy enough. Pork sandwich lacked flavor & was very greasy. Expected pricey but very little food. Sandwich was the size a 5 you would eat. Issues with the register caused delays. Not pleased enough to return.

I Live in the Exton area and found this place while walking around the Exton Market area. They have amazing burgers and so many selections. My Favorite is the Hangover Burger, it has a burger patty, egg, and maple syrup on top. It is sooo...good. I like their fries and they cook everything to order, the place is clean, easy parking and has specials each day.More

So we were taking advantage to the good weather last Thursday walking around in the Main Street area of Exton. We like this part of town. Some really interesting shops and a great array of places to eat for foodies or those just looking for...lunch or dinner. We happened along "Buddy's" by chance and decided to give it a try. My first impression was; "Oh. Five Guys with a better menu." Well. That's partially correct. They serve up the same types of burgers and fries as Five Guys with one huge difference. Buddy's menu is really quite incredible. If you and your large group can't all find something on it to eat. You are in big trouble. A large choice of salads. Like their Taco, Cobb or Grilled Chicken. Then there are their sandwiches; Smoked or Pulled Pork, Grilled Cheese or even a Veggie Melt. Cheesesteaks, Hot Dogs, French Onion, Chicken Breast. Then they have; Smoked Wings, numerous types of their fries, kids menu. The list goes on and on. That alone catapults them well past Five Guys. So what did I order? After the challenging business of picking which burger I wanted, I settled on a "Buddy" (2 patties) and several of their free toppings. A large order of Boardwalk Fries and my fiancee wanted to try one of their homemade shakes. You order and then sit down and they will bring it out to you if they are not to busy. Otherwise, wait by the counter. The food was brought to us fairly quickly. My burger was hot, juicy and delicious. I'd say a sight better than Five Guys again. The fires were really, really good. Crisp on the outside and soft and hot on the inside. They also give you far more than you could eat. Now the shake. Not so great. Made with real ice cream the trick to making a good shake that way is mix it. Mix it good. Otherwise you get a lot of chunks of ice when the milk is poured before hand. This was the case with her's. But the staff were friendly, pleasant and efficient in every way. And something that always makes me happy. The prices were more than fair. This is my new burger joint. Try it and make it yours too.More

Family and I decided to meet for brunch at a new place in Exton, Pa. Unfortunately the wait was ridiculous. We noticed a Buddy’s Burgers next door I had never been there and even though it was early, we were quite hungry. There was an...extensive menu and the young man was very patient and attentive while we all ordered. All of our burgers were really tasty and the onion rings too. I would highly recommend it and can’t wait to go backMore

If you want to sink your teeth into a good, juicy burger, this is the place! Love the outdoor tables in the summertime! I can't get past the french onion burger; melts in your mouth! Don't forget to get one of their cards they stamp...with every visit. Accumulate stamps for free burger.More

First time at this place and I had the South Philly Buddy. It was the burger of the week, two patties with aged sharp provolone, sautéed garlic spinach, parmesan cheese, roasted long hots & finished with roasted garlic mayo. It left me feeling quite satisfied....My wife had a custom Lil Buddy. Sure am looking forward to our next visit and I encourage you, if you are in the area to stop in and check it out. Also see my pics of the yummy goodness.More

Stopped in recently for the first time. We were looking for a yummy lunch and pulled into the Main Street at Exton shopping center as they have lots of great choices. We opted to try Buddy's out and see what the quality was like. Their...prices are decent and they have a wide menu from which to choose. They do have a vegetarian option for a burger, which was quite good. Their fries are hand-cut and well-seasoned. They were too well done for my liking but otherwise were good. I agree with another poster who said that their fries are not as good as those offered up at Five Guys.More

This place is great. It serves up great burgers and fries at a fairly reasonable price. I’m partial to the Soprano burger with sweet potato fries. Their sweet potato fries are literally the best I have ever had! I wish they’d make a burger of...the month topped with BBQ beef brisket or pulled pork, coleslaw, and mac and cheese!More
