Been to Brickers twice. Pizza was good but not great. There are better places in the area. Service was decent and seems pretty clean. Kind of a different setting in that it looks like a take out pizza joint with a bar in it.

Staff was not overly friendly. I actually felt intimidated. Cheese pizza was just ok and the mushroom onion black olive pizza had a burnt crust and a soggy top. They had no artificial sweetener and made you feel stupid for asking for it. If you are looking for good pizza this is not the place.

I called for pickup at 8:05 on a Saturday. The website says they serve till 8:30 before switching to bar menu. I said I'd like to order for pickup. The guy on the line paused before telling me they weren't taking any more orders. "We'll have to help you next time." And he hung up. Ok- so I order from... More

Not everything we go was good but the chef salad and pizza was great!! The staff didn't start out friendly but after a few laughs and jokes they lighted up .. They should take the waffle fries off not a reason to give a bad review it is a bit out dated and needs a good cleaning but great for... More

You don't go here for the ambience. What you do go for is delicious pizza at extremely reasonable prices. Pleasantly surprised at how good the Old World Pizza was. Awesome!

Have ordered their delivery pizza before because people rave about it. First time average, I thought it was a one time problem. Ordered a few months later, same thing. Someone said "go to the shop, it will be fresh". It was the same AND the customer service was just OK. The atmosphere reminded me of a 70's pizza joint-old and... More

I ate here on a Sunday afternoon. The pizza was ok, not pizza that I would go out of my way to get again. Drinks were very expensive (fountain sodas) at $2.25. Bill was high, $16 for two drinks and two mini pizzas on pitas. As a side note, the restrooms were very clean and the guy at the counter... More

I love the nicks spicy sausage sub and the old world pizza. Very affordable very good food. So much better than Applebee's or any fast food around Hershey.
