Buddies has a different special every night, and excellent menu food. But where it excels is with its fantastic waitstaff. I haven't had a server in the past several years who was not kind, attentive, personable and informative. Buddies has become a weekly or semi-monthly...More

Generous portions, everyone can always find something to eat. Several locations, all slightly different in menu and specials, but owned by the same family. Our "go to" place when we can't decide or don't want to eat at home.
