I got a piece of pizza to go with a salad. I had ordered a slice of pepperoni and when I got home, I found out that it was a plain piece - to a degree, my fault for not checking. Salad was fine, but pizza was nothing special. Staff was friendly enough for a quick conversation. I will definitely... read more

We love Brickers Old World pizza and decided to have it delivered because we had a house full of family visiting. We order from Brickers once or twice a month. This is the first time I reviewed delivery food from anyone. Brickers Old World is among the best pizzas we ever had. The sauce really makes it. Our kids request... More

My husband and I waited for an hour and a half for our pizza to be delivered. when we called the oerson we talked to rudely told us it was on the way. When it finally arrived, it tasted terrible. We couldn't believe that we had paid over $20 for pizza that tasted that bad. Next time we want a... More

Great locally owned pizza and sub shop in Hershey. Skip the chains and eat here. Excellent spicy sausage subs with meat from local Italian grocery store. Old World Pizza is my favorite in a of Central PA.

Great spot for Beer and Pizza. The atmosphere is very low key and there is never a wait. The few times i have been here I was treated like family!

Every time I've come here the owner is rude. The pizza is not very good, and I've never enjoyed the atmosphere. Some time ago I asked if they made 10" pizzas, since I had ordered that at other pizza shops, and I was quickly and rudely told, "If you want a personal pizza why don't you just go back to... More

As locals we frequent Brickers in Hershey. The pizza is fabulous with delcious crust, fresh ingredients, and generous portions. The atmosphere could use a serious remodel. It is clear the place has seen better days with odd chili pepper stenciling , wobbly tables, a terrible draft of cold air, and tube television sets. The employees are always friendly when we...

Whenever family comes in from town they always ask for Brickers Old World pizza. Tasty, hot, flavorful and served by folks who really appreciate your business.
