Pizza born in different country and flourished perished and cherished in different country. Americans are the biggest consumer of pizza in the world. And they have their own version. They love to see and eat it in their own way, as other. So before going to a pizza shop you really need to know what kind of pizza they are serving.
I have been to east coast and west coast to see and eat different kind of pizza. I can post the difference of the different kind of pizza available in US. But for that you need to wait for some time.
Today is the day of Buddy’s Pizza, serving pizza only in Michigan from 1946. I visit Auburn Hills pizza shop at least 5 times as it is a common destination for an office lunch. This is a complete Americanize Pizza so don’t expect the taste you got from Italy.
The shop is outstanding if you think American. It has TGI Friday looks. But I really don’t understand how an oversize guy can sit in those small chairs. I know one of my colleagues who don’t want to get in as in office lunch they need to join the tables and doesn’t provide the sofa. That’s really acceptable. It is not their problem that you are fat. Though they are making people fat.
Cheese and Cheese and cheese are everywhere. Even in customers face. It is a complete Americans place and you will not get parking properly in time of lunch. So must visit in AM not PM.
Some round of parking space and get a good parking spot when you enter the shop a yummy smell of mix pizzas will snatch your attention from the beautifully dressed waiters (I don’t know if in America it called something else.) They are really well mannered and the make-ups make them really than others.
You will get a beautiful salad with no dressing and lots of Feta cheese to taste you up. As our team has vegan and non-vegan, beef-pork and non-beef pork, we used to order almost every famous pizza they have.
Then your wait time starts with salad and lots of business talk from the managers. Salads are not chewable and also the office talks. I used to get bored and turned my head to see the customers and their expression. And then you will feel you are the only not happy person in the room.
Lots of happy face discussing the beauty of pizza. Lots of senior people are moving their fork and knife making small piece of cheer and add into their face. “Wow” and “Excellent” word you can here everywhere if you have the bad habit of overhearing. But their happiness will tell you that how tasty pizza you can expect from your buddy’s order.
The wait time is longer and a new order will take a lot of time so better order everything at one time. You should be smart enough to understand your hunger and the weight of those pizzas.
It came after all, excellent looking flat chicken fajita pizza on your plate, properly baked, crunchy in corner. But wait. Don’t take a bite. Leave your Indian, Mexican, Italian dot dot dot taste from your tongue. Then take a bite. The salt less, flavor less, pile of wheat flour with lots of Marinara will cheer your lunch. It’s really tasty when you think American. It’s really nasty if you think global.
My vegan friend who is in US for more than five year was enjoying a vegetarian pizza with a smiley face. I took a bite from his plate which was really awesome. I added some chili flakes remove the tomatoes and add some salt. It simply melts in my mouth.
So here is the confused conclusion from my side. Buddy’s pizza is for them who use buddy in place of friends. It’s not their fault that their cuisine doesn’t satisfy a person (or a community) but they are best in what they are doing. If you are American and have tested a lot you should go for this place to give a star. But if you are from the country which loves spices then definitely you can ignore. It’s not the place for you. For me I will definitely not going again.
Buddy’s you should try to make a Asian buddy.
