The pizza is deep dish and delicious. We've never been disappointed and have been going there for many years. The antipasto salad is the best I've ever had. And if you love the dressing you can buy a bottle of it. They have many other food choices which I'm sure are also good but we love the pizza and salad... More

Couldn't get over how much I liked the antipasto salad, served large - family style, with meats and cheeses blending nicely with the lettuce and dressing. The pizza we got, a square, was woefully lacking in sauce and the pepperoni was pretty flavorless. I liked the cheese, which was more mature than most you find on pizzas.

We are in the area a lot due to business and we most always make a trip to Buddy's. Detroit pizza is kind of a hybrid of New York and Chicago. So its the best of both worlds. The crust at Buddy's is always crispy and the topping selections are great. The salads are good but be aware that a... More

The 'Lake Ontario' may be the best pizza I have ever eaten! Never mind the local outlet shopping, Buďdy's is wòrth the ďrive from Ontario. I will return, and highly recommend.

This place has a very good variety of pizzas and hamburgers. I've been a couple times here trying both pizzas and hamburgers and definitely I would go with the pizza for my future visits.

Buddy's has been a Detroit favorite for over 50 years. If you like several of the copycats out there, you will love the "grandfather" of all pizzas. It's the special cheese blend, crunchy crust and fresh combinations that make this pizza memorable. Paired with your favorite beer...it's a winner. They also have other menu items for your pleasure. 11 lications... More

I'm here on a buisness Trip so of course I've been browsing for places to eat. I came here based on the raving reviews - and was NOT dissapointed! Words can not describe how amazing this pizza is. I would drive out of my way to come here. Try it out!

I visited this location with my four children and brother. The kids had fun playing the kid placemat games while we selected delicious pizza and a Greek salad that was big and fabulous. The service was great, the atmosphere was very family-friendly and everyone left happy.
