I have never dined in the Buddyz Pizzeria Restaurant, but I have had their pizza for take out. Buddyz has hands down the best pizza in the area! I do feel that it is on the expensive side so I don't order it often, but as a special treat it is awesome!

Great place to meet friends for a drink or grab a pizza! I like the BBQ Chicken Pizza, my husband loves there Reuben! Has a nice but small outdoor sitting area!

We stopped here for lunch. Freindly staff. We had our choice to sit inside or outside. Nice view either way. Pizza is awesome, baked in a wood fired oven.

Rather than crab about the slow service (another girl outside waiting went in before I could), the long wait for the food , the sandwiches showing up semi warm, or the chicken sandwich being as bland as possible (maybe they ran out of spices ?) I'll just say I have had much better in so many other places why ever... More

We recently had a meal at Buddyz. Our experience: LOCATION: Nice location right on the McHenry Riverwalk. Had a nice patio and decent interior. Good setting. FOOD: The food was very good. Our group had a couple different pizzas (thin crust BBQ chicken and stuffed crust pepperoni). Both very good and I would easily choose to buy this pizza again... More

They have a full bar, pizza and pasta dishes and all along the river. There is outside dining as well as inside of course. They have specials, like all you can eat pizza lunches with several varieties. The pizza is really good and I like the chicken parmesan too. Nice casual dining.
