Buddy’s has been a favorite for many years! We lived in Pocatello for 35 years and always have to stop there to eat when we visit. If you've never been and you like garlic you must go and have their salad!

As a former resident of Pocatello this was a regular place for us to eat. The famous salad is something that you do no want to miss. This is a staple for Pocatello

Visited Buddy’s via recommendation from colleague in the area. I was there for business. Super good food in rather large portions. The prices are reasonable and the service was excellent.
