We often come back to Michigan to visit and we always make the trip to the Buddy's location in Detroit. Year after year this restaurant continues to provide an outstanding pizza.
In fact, when we are in the mood for a great pizza while at home in Washington, we have one air freighted out to us. This location still makes the best Buddy's pizza.

You gotta go here. So much more distinctive than the suburban Buddy's around the area. The pizza is worthy of its high acclaim, and if nothing else, you'll see the point of origin of a Detroit institution. The location may be out of your way, but at least they provide parking; it's also within a few minutes of Hamtramck and a busy corridor of Conant to the south. Always an interesting place to visit.

As a teenager, this was my favorite place to go to for Pizza. Back than (30 years ago) there was less than a handful of Buddy's and this place was considered the Best Pizza Parlor in the State! The
decor was typical Italian. The food was their own, noone made pizza like Buddy's. Although they are still there, the area is considered run down.

BUDDYS PIZZA is a wonderful place to go to eat.I have been eating and visiting Buddys for over thirty years. I know from personal experience all the items they use are fresh,They make the pizza's from scratch. I know i worked there nearly 28 years ago..The new items are aslo good on thier menu,I love the super Pizza,,,also the cheese, pep,and mushroom,,mmmmmmmmmm. My favorite salad is the Greek,and Ceasar salad,and of course the Antipasto salad with the secret recipe,,made by a little italian lady(Connie). She is gone now but her dressing is still a reminder that she once worked there.
Buddys go out of there way to help people plan partys,,they have two rooms available for private partys.I'd like to also add that the owner of the resturaunt,Robert Jacobs,does a lot of charitable activities,

years ago,,
all fresh and Delicious,alot of good people have worked at Buddys throu the years and alot of them are

Upon moving from Detroit to Tennesse over 20 yrs. ago we have been in search of a good pizza. We have tried many and nothing comes close to Buddys. Detroiters and those in surrounding areas please count your blessings!! I only wish they had a system of shipping the pizzas out state. A trip to Buddys is never missed when we visit!! Again sadly missed!!!!!

Great place to eat,have been eating there for over 30 years,I also go to the Buddy's at 13 mile and Van Dyke. Their pizza is like none I've eaten before. I brought my daughter up on their pizza and now that's the only kind she and my two Grand-kids will eat. She moved up North and when I go to visit I have to buy two Supremes and take them up with me.

Pros: Great Taste, Good Price, Nice People

Cons: , Bigger Parking Lot

.

I've been going to Buddy's in Detroit since I was a teenager. My late parents wouldn't go anywhere else for pizza! I still live in Detroit, and close enough to Buddy's to go as often as I'd like! I always recommend this place to my friends.

Pros: Great Pizza, Great Service, Great Atmosphere

Cons: , Needs Remodeling, Crowded at times

.

This was the best pizza when I was a kid growing up in the Detroit area, it remained the best when I was a young man in college--when no trip to Tiger Stadium was complete without a visit to Buddy's either before or after the game--and it is still the best pizza. I never visit Detroit without visiting Buddy's.

.

For the price you pay, you'd think this was the best pizza in the world. I'm here to say IT'S NOT!! The service is slow, the pizza is cold, and the sauce is boreing to the taste buds. They have been getting by on reputation alone. Once these people start trying other pizza in town they will soon relize that they have been dup'ed by Buddy's.

I have lived in both New York and Chicago and have heard rave reviews about the pizza from those cities.

Personally, nothing compares to Buddy's (and Shield's) pizza in Detroit. I don't know what the problem is with Detroit - it just doesn't seem to know how to get the word out about its finer features.

The pizza is so good that a woman in Knoxville, TN - when hearing that I had lived in Detroit, exclaimed (without prompting) "Ohhhh - my boyfriend is from there and I visited - BUDDY'S PIZZA!" (We weren't even discussing restaurants.)

It's just that good!

Pros: Flavor, Value, Great salad too

Cons: busy

.

The pizza is good, but the Anti-Pasto Salad is the best! With the Homemade dressing on the side, you never have too much. A great touch to a fun and fairly inexpensive night out, with a playful atmosphere. Perfect for family dinners!

While visiting Michigan everyone raved about Buddy's Pizza-- so I just had to go. I waited to be seated as this place which was packed so I thought it had to be good. I loved to retro styled dining area & the servers were kind but the pizza was not good. It tasted very heavily laiden in grease & tasted exactly like a cheese-doodle! As weird as that might sound. It was not very fresh tasting & it was a disppointment. :O( I will not return.

Ever since I can remember my parents have taken me to Buddy's Pizzeria for pizza and salad. The deep dish, can't be beat. Anyone who wants good pizza, needs to travel here.

Pros: Inexpensive, Large Variety

.

There's no other place in the metro area to find a pizza like this. Square, cheesy slices with almost any topping you could possibly ask for wait for you to come and sink your teeth into them. Excellent sauce, high-quality toppings, and sometimes different ways of baking help make Buddy's Pizza the best there is! The pepperoni is placed under the cheese to prevent scorching and for extra flavor. If I was to make my own, I wouldn't make it any other way.

the best pizza in Detroit without any doubt. Go to the original on 6 mile and conant and visit wih Erv the host since 1972... Play a game of Bocci ball, eat an antipasto salad, try their ravioli and consume the sinfully sumptuous pizza that is Buddys.
There are many Buddys locations BUT only one original Buddys. I have eated there since 1972 and NO other pizza is even close... Move out of state and you will have dreams of Buddys secret recipe...Simply the best...Cozy surroundings...shot and beer crowd

When I think of real Pizza, I think of Buddys. When I was just a grommet, my grandma used to buy 2 or 3 frozen Buddys for when she watched us kids. Popping them into the new invention calledthe microwave...."There is no place like the Original on Conent." She used to say, "it must be the seasoned pans." Whatever it is, it's Pizza the way it should be. No flavor quite like it anywhere.
