Went here for dinner based on reviews and the fact that I like local mom and pop type places. It has been around a while and is one room diner style with booths and tables cashier at front when you walk in. Walls are adorned with Alabama Football pictures. Staff very friendly and efficient. My feeling is that breakfast is... More

This is the 2nd time eating breakfast at Buddy's and it was just as good as the 1st time! The biscuits are light and fluffy some of the best I've ever had. Country ham, grits were all excellent. They were extremely busy so service was a little slow but expected.

What a find for breakfast! Since they open so early (5:00am) Buddy's was the perfect place for breakfast when we were in town to ride in the Hot 100 bike ride. Our order included eggs over easy a simple cheese omlette, grits, home fries and biscuits all delivered hot and extremely FAST! Service was friendly and efficient. Look forward to... More

We have eaten here a few times and have always enjoyed it. My family really likes the cheese burgers and fries I personally like the slaw. I really want to try one of their steaks. We will definitely be back we have always enjoyed it and look forward to a trip through Tuscaloosa to try it again.

We like their hamburger steak topped with onions and the home it fries. A salad comes first- just iceberg and tomatoes but is a good start while you wait for your entree. Lots of people also seem to meet there for breakfast.

Buddys serves steaks (several types and cuts), chicken, ribs, pork chops, and beef and pork barbecue. I usually stick with the filet because it has the best flavor but they are very inconsistent in cooking Temps. You may order med rare but get med well. Even with that, I've never sent it back because the flavor is so good. They... More

Stopped in for lunch. Small cafe but food was hot and really good. I ordered the hamburger steak and it was great. My salad wad really good as well. For a no frills, friendly atmosphere, I would definitely recommend.

Best steak sandwich anywhere. Always filled with locals & friendly staff. Older establishment & no frills, just quality food at great price!

This is the second time we've stopped in for a bite after a "nail-biter" football game. I was impressed with the burgers the first time, but just forgot about writing a review. If you like a good, juicy, fresh ground burger, you won't go wrong here. It is located just north of Tuscaloosa in Northport and right on Highway 43/13.... More
