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.

We are from the area, but went to hershey on a house hunting spree. One of the owners took the time to talk with my 2 and 3 year old. This may sound irrelevant but as a parent you want to take your kids to an environment that accepts their sometimes loud nature. He was so sweet he even gave... More

This place makes a great standard pizza. The place just has very basic seating with tables that wobble and no decor. There are a few TV's with sports on. The bathrooms are terrible. But it is a good quick pizza and a short drive from Hersheypark. We stopped in for dinner to take a break from the park crowds and... More

The pizza was awesome, the people were really nice, and it was a great value. If I did not live in Missouri we would go back all the time!!

We stumbled upon this restaurant after visiting Chocolate World. There is nothing fancy about this place but that is not the point. The food was awesome! I had a slice of pizza, and my husband had a sandwich and we both had drinks and paid just under $10. I am glad we waited and ate at a local restaurant. If... More

It's clean, friendly and inexpensive - 3 good things! It has a pizza side and a bar side. Good place to bring kids and get a big pizza. Pizza is made by kids for kids! It seemed fresh and sauce was good. Spaghetti tasted like it was cooked 10 hours prior and sat in water. M-balls had a funny taste... More
