I was in Waterbury for several weeks and after a few weeks my coworkers and I discovered Buddy's Famous Burgers. The food was great and the staff was excellent. The girl working the cash register had beautiful eyes that I kept catching myself gazing into. I am going to miss going there now that I left town.

We dined at Buddy's Famous today. My family is all about supporting small business. We liked the food and the outside ambience is beautiful. The dinning room could have been cleaner.

Surly staff. Carded a 70 year old who wanted to buy a beer. Refused to let us bring our own wine even though they didn't serve it, but served beer. No air conditioning. Uncomfortable seating. Customers were leaving in disgust. First and last visit.

I have never had a bad meal at this café. They used to serve breakfast, but recently changed their name to Buddy's famous burgers and now are serving dinner. The bread is homemade, everything is fresh, the staff is amazing, and the prices are very reasonable. Perfect for families and travelers on a budget. It's the kind of place where... More

This is no longer a breakfast place. They are changing to a lunch/dinner place to get burgers, etc. They've changed the name and the hours of operation as of Monday, 5/23/16.

Basic breakfast for two. I don't usually have anything specific to say about pancakes but these were just-right crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

This was a nice little find for some delicious breakfast food. Very affordable (under 10USD per person), good portions, tasty and not fussy. Great spot for a cozy meal!

Went to Park Row for breakfast on our way out the Stowe Vermont area. The restaurant is conveniently located about a mile off of Route 89 in Waterbury. We were surprised by the self service ordering at the register, self coffee pick-up, and having to set our own table. I had read that the blueberry pancakes were great. I found... More
