“Pizza options”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

We were able to have both the traditional square pizza with nice crisp corners, and for my husband, a gluten free option

“Busy, Busy, Busy!!!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

This Buddy's location is always busy. You have Chrysler HQ, Oakland University and a host of nearby subdivisions. The pizza is of course the best item on the menu and tastes as good as the original location on Conant Street in Detroit. The table area is a little cramped but that makes part of the atmosphere a Buddy's. There are plenty of televisions usually telecasting sporting events so the kids and occassionally, the men, can get distracted from the table. The bar area is an open plan with about 15 seats at the bar, 6 booths and 3 tables. Again, more televisions for the sports enthusiast. The beer selection is decent and the bartenders can whip up any type of mixed drink. Recommendations include drink: a Lemon Martini or Sam Adams beer and pizza with the thin-wheat crust.

“Yum! Nothing like their square pizza!”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Love this location. It's big enough that you can usually get a seat without too much of a wait. Pizza is a reasonable price and no one can beat Buddy's square pizza. The Detroit Zoo usually offers a good coupon. Service was good, very attentive. We enjoyed the Buddy's Rolls and Antipasto salad with our pizza. Soda tasted flat, but everything else was great.

“The best reason to visit Detroit”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

We were just going along to be nice when friends we were visiting took us here for pizza. We don't like deep dish style, but this is different! It was amazingly crispy and not doughy. Lots of good flavor and all the topping done right. Didn't even have to order extra cheese, it comes with plenty on it.
