Metro Times Readers' Picks: Best Neighborhood Pizza
Before we broke up our pizza by county, Buddy's was the clear, perennial winner of our best neighborhood pizza category. After a full life as a neighborhood speakeasy, Buddy's original location on Conant only started pumping out pizza in 1946. And though it has expanded to nine locations all over southeastern Michigan, it has clearly retained the neighborhood cred.
Best of Metromix Detroit: PIZZA
Opening in 1936 as a "blind pig" designed to skirt the laws of Prohibition, the original Buddy's 17125 Conant location is still going strong as one of the most popular restaurants in Metro Detroit. Its square pizza has won a boatload of awards, both local and national. Pasta and salads are also available. Buddy's can even whip up a healthy pizza with ingredients and toppings like whole wheat crust, olive oil, low-fat cheese, and vegetables if you so desire. --Nick Meyer
Voted Best Pizza (deep-dish) by Real Detroit Weekly
Did you know that the original Buddy's in Detroit, located at 6 Mile Rd. and Conant, was once a blind pig? But it's not the Prohibition pours that have kept Buddy's on the map for almost three quarters of a century. Indeed, while bars are now common in most dinner restaurants in Detroit, the charred-corner crusts of Buddy's deep dish square pizza remains a rarity. Alan Richman, the food critic for GQ, lauds Buddy's Pizza for producing "one of the best crusts in the country." Thick yet light, burnt yet bursting with flavor, chewy and crunchy, Buddy's was a revelation to Richman, and the world. But that's something we've known for 75 years.
