Always good, always friendly

Sometimes we visit as a family or a group of friends. This time solo. Especially LOVE the Old World Pizza. When family comes from out of town they always ask if we can order or visit for some Old World. Complimented with a bottle of Troeg's Mad Elf and life is good. Service is quick and friendly... read more

It's not a bad thing when I say typical pizza place. It was a venue with a counter to place your order and tables to sit at to eat. Nothing fancy; actually a little run down as many of the chairs were torn. However, the stromboli we had was very good. Located near hotels and Hershey attractions (up the street... More

We had a slice and a pint. They have great selection and the pieces were huge. It is a really cute place inside too. We did lunch there prior to going to Hershey and so glad we did.

For $22 for a Old World pizza, it was not a good value. It was a strange pizza, with plenty of grease pooled on top. The carpet was disgusting, chairs were ripped, and the decor was very dated. I could have overlooked that if the pizza were amazing, but that was not the case.

Bricker's is a family shop. Their pizza, food and drink do not disappoint. Mr. Bricker remembers our kids' names, has been very supportive of the sports teams in town, and is just a pleasant guy.

We were looking for a place to eat prior to going into Hershey Park. I wish we had just paid the expensive prices for amusement park food. The people in the restaurant acted like we were bothering them when we came in. The highchair we used was gross. The pizza was nothing special, but I wouldn't have reviewed it at... More

Bricker's is a great Hershey staple. If you go in for lunch, you can get great-tasting food and drinks served to you quickly. Their homemade soups, strombolis and old-world (sauce on top) pizza are just a few of the great items on the menu. The staff is friendly and you can tell it's a great place because you see many...
