I heard a lot about Buddy's Pizza so I was excited to try it. If the cheese wasn't hot, I would have nothing positive to say about eating this pie, and it would have gotten a terrible rating from me because that was about all...it had going for it. Normally I don't write reviews, but this was a fairly expensive pie that didn't have any flavor. Instead of all the positive reviews, that were written on the box, they needed to have the temperature and time of re-heating on it, if anyone had the desire to eat the left-overs. The employees were great, nothing wrong with the service, but taste, I can't say one of Michigan's Best. Keep Looking.More

We decided to go to Buddy's and got a seat easily outside- socially distanced. We ordered pasta, not pizza and the portions were very large. We both had enough to eat for lunch the next day. Two main courses, with 2 cokes, and a tip...came to about $40. I had the the carbonara, my friend had the bolognese. We were both happy. I would have liked mine a little bit spicier.More

Absolutely unprepared for carry out during this unfortunate situation, call ahead order is useless, it is basically drive thru service (one order at a time), wait in line for 30-40 minutes after your scheduled pick up time. Also, no instruction to get to In line....If you are desperate enough to order from this horrible pizza service company, get in the car line ASAP. Know your check #. Will not be backMore

When our project team organized a team lunch out at Buddy's, I was not very enthusiastic because of the following reasons: 1. Buddy's is well known for its pizzas 2. Bad experiences at pizza places to get real vegan pizzas 3. Converted vegan pizzas never...tasted great 4. I hated the look of waiters/waitresses when I request to get one of their non-vegan pizza converted to a vegan pizza But my experience at Buddy's turned out to be much different. Their vegan pizza using Daiya brand cheese was great! It was as good as or even better than its non-vegan version, as per a taste test by my non-vegan friends.More

My wife is from Ohio She had never heard of this chain before. This is now her fav pizza spot in southeastern Michigan . The pizza is very good. The folks at the carry out counter need to improve customer skills. Personal and inappropriate conversations...while customers wait.More

We hosted a game night with 20 people. Called and ordered carry out from Buddy’s who gave me help in ordering enough food for everyone. When we got there to pick it up, they were very generous with coupons which we really appreciated. The food...got rave reviews from our friends and the night was a huge hit. Thank you Buddy’s for making it so.More

I chose this pizza restaurant because it looked unique and was busy. Being a frequent traveler, I try to pick restaurants off the beaten path and that are not part of a chain. Buddy’s makes “Detroit” style pizza which was new to me and my...wife. Apparently Detroit style is when they put the toppings on before the sauce and cheese. The dough was thick like a deep dish pizza and the taste was amazing. The ambiance was perfect and service was fast and friendly. I’d recommend this if you want a great pizza that tastes different (but good) and a relaxing place to enjoy it! Also...get the fried zucchini and ask for meat sauce and lemons...squeeze lemons on zucchini and enjoy!More

Quite simply, Buddy's Detroit style rectangular deep dish is the best pizza in the world. I grew up in the Detroit suburbs and when I visit the Detroit area, I come back to Buddy's and love the pizza just as much. I recommend plain cheese...or green pepper & onion. Don't get too many toppings. This pizza is special with sauce on top. The Greek salad is also good.More
