  1. Can’t Wait!

    We LOVE Buddy’s Salad – pizza is good as long as it’s hot and fresh! – not a fan of leftovers 😉 Can’t wait to go and MAKE my kids eat salad – with a side of pizza.

  2. I’m so excited for this. I’ve been wanting to try Buddy’s Pizza for a while and when I heard they were coming to Ann Arbor I decided to wait and save the trip. I love pepperoni pizza so I can’t wait to try their Detroit Public TV pepperoni pizza…YUM!

  3. My husband and I love Buddy’s Pizza! We have several memories that have happened at Buddys- we had our rehearsal dinner for our wedding and we told my parents I was pregnant with my son at Buddys! Can’t wait to have one local.

  4. Have not yet tried this place! But everyone seems to excited, it will be fun to finally see and try it out.

  5. I just drove by the storefront yesterday, trying to figure out when they were going to open. My family LOVES Buddy’s Detroiter pizza. We are so happy we’re finally getting a Buddy’s in Ann Arbor.

  6. Really looking forward to checking this place out! Probably won’t get a chance to go this weekend, but will definitely stop in soon!
    Fav pizza toppings are chicken or all the veggies I can get!

  7. We are so excited! Feels like this has been in the works for ages. We’re looking forward to finally being able to go.

  8. Excited to have a Buddy’s close by now – I grew up going to the original, and it’s my dad’s favorite pizza place. I’m sure we’ll go frequently!

  9. We are big time Buddy’s fans! We love the antipasto salad, the pizza (various toppings), the garlic cheese bread, and the mac and cheese. When we lived in another state for many years, we always made sure to grab some Buddy’s when we came back. Excited to have one so close to us now!
