As a NYer I'm always looking to try out another city's "famous pizza" so I was excited to get to Buddy's and try some Detroit style. They serve it square pieces, baked in a sheet. The service was excellent, with a great house salad and bread sticks galore. Now to the actual pizza. If you're from NY, you'd recognize it... More

We go to Buddy's only a few times a year because we live in Ann Arbor; we can't wait for Buddy's to open near us in a few months. We never miss the "Slice for Life" - Buddy's great contribution day to the Capuchins who have the Soup Kitchen, etc. for the needy on the East side of Detroit. Great... More

Buddy's is simply the best pizza in the metropolitan Detroit area, a region that created numerous national pizza chains. Fresh ingredients and awesome crunchy crusts carry the day. Don't overload with extras as the cheese is simply wonderful. Service is good for a rapid turnover sports bar setting.

What wonderful food! What engaging and lively servers! Clean and right in the middle of one of the Metro area's most happening block. I will return whenever I need a smile all over my face. Which is often.

Ate here with 4 in our party after reading TripAdvisor reviews. Portion sizes large. My antipasto salad (individual size) could have easily fed 3 of us! Salads were fresh and my daughter loved the cheese-broccoli soup. The Detroit pizza and gluten-free supreme pizzas were excellent. We ordered 2 4-square pizzas and were only able to eat half of each (which... More

Awesome pizza and service! Our waitress took the time to give us some recommendations and really did a great job. We went early on a Sunday evening and there was already a wait for seating. The pizza is more of a deep dish but not as deep as New York deep dish. The toppings were fresh and very good. If... More

We have tried to dine at another buddy's in the past, but due to the wait we went elsewhere. Now I know why, they have really good food and excellent service. I enjoyed the minestrone. It was full bodied and loaded with veggies. Then our Lake Huron pizza came. Delightful! The cheese was different than any I have ever tasted.... More

Felt like pizza one night while in Dearborn on business. Sat at the bar and had the Hawaiian pizza. Definitely a different pizza than I'm used to; dough was light and somewhat crisp, albeit a "thick" crust. Barbecue sauce was not sweet as I feared it might be, had a nice flavor that went well with the ham and pineapple.... More

Buddy's has the best pizza in Michigan. In our group we had meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans. Buddy's accommodated everyone's wants and needs. Their salads are also very good and large. We had an outstanding waitress who helped to make the evening great Everyone needs to try Buddy's!
