A Detroit classic pizza joint. Thick crust pizza is the way to go in the D. Order the salad with your pizza.

We were there in a group of 50 both children and adults. We had prearranged our meal. The pizza was the best I have ever had! We were given a large room to be together. The staff were very professional and very capable of handling this size group. I can't say enough about the delicious pizza.

Popular local restaurant serving Detroit style deep dish pizza. OK beer selection, popular for large groups, so can be noisy and crowded. Service is usually good. Has decent gluten free options per my gluten free brother in law

I had not had Buddy's pizza in 8 years. It was just as I remember. I had a salad with house dressing and a little Buddy. It was prefect. I will visit again during my next trip.

We have been to the Livonia Buddy's so many times I can't guess how many. Buddy's Caesar Salad and their Caesar dressing is the best in Detroit, hands down, no contest. Rich, thick, plenty of garlic, anchovy, lemon juice, The romaine is always all deep green, and chilled, shaved fresh parmesan, in house made croutons, with a wedge of lemon... More

Buddy's pizza is a frequent dinner stop for us. We dine there with our immediate family as well as with extended family. We always order the anti-pasta salad (superb) and a pepperoni and supreme pizza (amazing, delicious crust). Great atmosphere and friendly service. You won't be disappointed!

Buddy's makes a great Detroit style pizza....but the Cloverleaf makes the best. Both originated in the same place, but the expansion of the Buddy's chain dropped the quality just a bit...

Love the variety of toppings and pre-arranged pizzas. The antipasto salad is fabulous. The breaded cauliflower is really good. The experience of eating at Buddy's - no matter what location - is wonderful and fulfilling.
