The pizza here is all thin-crust, and tastes very good. The crust is consistently light and flaky, the sauce is tasty, and the cheese is plentiful. The toppings are all very basic however, and all seem to be bulk quality rather than freshly chopped veggies. There is NO seating or delivery; take-out is the only option here. I would never...

The only pizza our family agrees on! Flavorful sauce, spicy (but not too spicy) sausage and gooey cheese! We live 20 minutes away, so we order it half-baked and finish it at home. The crust is thin and soft, but we crisp it up on the bottom rack in our oven. NOT A DINE IN RESTAURANT.

Bucks started out in 1958, the year I was born. It's still there and for good reason. Yep it is a little greasy from the large portions of meat and cheese toppings, but I have been getting them for years. I always get two because one of them never makes it home. It's all old school pizza, just the way... More

I am not sure why anyone would buy this pizza when it is not even as good as the best frozen pizzas available. Digiornos would have been better. The crust seemed like matza bread (unleavened bread traditionally eaten by Jews during the week-long Passover holiday) and the sauce and sausage topping that I got were unremarkable. If you want a...

Sorry Bucks - the pizza used to be so good. Recently each time we've tried it, it wasn't the same good quality it used to be. Think someone needs to revisit a watchful eye over the workers at the Bucks on University Avenue. Unable to comment on the Bucks on Cottage Grove Rd. That one was always good previously.

I have eaten there pizza for the last 45 years. Sometimes the pizza barely makes it home. If you like thin crust, than this is the pizza for you!
