Cheap decor, average food and below average service. Not so fast, fast food. Better off just going to McDonald's!

Went here with a few friends. 3 families, 6 adults, 6 kids. Service was terribly slow. Ordered beers at the bar that took 20 minutes to arrive. In the restaurant for 45 minutes and our order had still not been taken. Over an hour after being here we still did not have food. Not good, particularly as the kids were... More

Ordered for delivery, took more than 3 hours to turn up. After waiting 2 hours we were told we'd be waiting 15 minutes. More than an hour later and eventually the food arrived. Food was fine but won't be ordering again thanks to such a poor experience.

Having waited along time to visit, I was looking forward to Buddy's! Unfortunately a few small aspects let it down for me. I ordered over two hours in advance, and still waited nearly 30 mins. They were busy but felt it was a tad excessive. Also had order a particular dish, despite order in advance and being in the branch... More

Totally my type of place. OK so it's "just" a diner and grill but these guys put a lot of thought and effort into their food. The kicker for me was the wings. As a lover of spice, I'm often (actually pretty much always) let down when a dish a restaurant describes as "very hot" barely tickles. Well, the Scotch... More

I used to be a Buddy's regular when they had a take away on Skirving Street and have visited the restaurant on a few occasions and always had a great meal but things have went drastically down hill. I visited with 3 adults and 3 children, I had steak which was cooked well but was very fatty so I had... More

As a Southsider, I've passed Buddy's a number of times and mentally added it to my 'must try' list, especially for weekend takeaway (as a comparison, we usually order from Mother's Dumplings, Ichiban, TriBeCa, Yo Sushi and Wagamama for takeaway). I've had mostly mixed reviews from friends and family so on this particular Sunday evening, we phoned to place an... More

Lovely, friendly staff! Great offer on £1 Tacos and £2 bottles of Sol. The tacos were really well made, loads of flavour. We also purchased a fried chicken burger and shared classic poutine, the latter in particular was was really tasty!

Thank Isabel S
