It is one of those places that Guy Fieri should go to Drive Ins Diners and Dives! Food is very good! Adults only it is a bar. Portions are large! Cheap Eats...Fries are the best! They bring out a six pack of sauces. Service is excellent!

We had lunch at Buddy's on the advice of a local shop owner. She was right. This is a very good place to eat, and it is a very friendly atmosphere. I recommend it highly. We had the home made chili and the grilled ham and cheese sandwich. They both were very good. The prices are very fair. Our total... More

If you like big hamburgers and good homemade fries this is the place for you. Low ceilings and dark but has a nice courtyard

Superior bar food in a fun atmosphere, especially the outdoor patio summer weekend nights with a band playing. Best pastrami sandwich I've had in a long time.

Timing was wrong to eat here, but the meals that others had looked really good. Very friendly place to visit for a cool one. Located in centre of Manson Village, very clean place. Many of the visitors that frequent Buddy's are from the upscale/pretentious nearby resort and this is reflected in the prices, which are a little higher than the... More

Great place for a drink! A bit funky and definitely a locals hang out. The food is good. Can be a bit greasy. The homemade french fries are a decadent treat!

This rating is not to compare to fancy restaurants -- this is a bar. When my wife and I entered, the first reaction was turn around quick. But the employees were exceedingly friendly, as were the patrons. My patty melt was as good as they get. The fries are, I think, hand cut, and are dry, soft, and hot. They... More
