Buddy's is one of the very first restaurants I visited upon moving to Tucson, and I was introduced to their vast salad menu.
Oriental, Shrimp, Spinach, Chopped - the list goes on and on. The salads are HUGE - and you can order half sizes. My favorite salad in town is still the Spinach salad with crispy greens, tomatoes, walnuts, avocado, bacon...and the best dressing ever.
Meals come with their signature muffins and sour dough bread - they always let you take a couple home as well.
The menu is vast - several pages - something for everyone. The place is generally packed on weekends, pretty full for lunch and weekday dinners.
I've never had a bad meal at Buddy's, and even more, never had a bad server. If the owner's son is still working, (I see him every so often) he knows how to make you feel remembered and welcome.
Located at 7385 S Houghton Road, Tucson (520) 881-2226
Give them a try for lunch or dinner, or late night snack. Try the fruit and cheese plate - it's sure to please.
Enjoy! After 11 years, I still do!
