Yum Yum- pizza for lunch!

We had car trouble on the road, and walked to Brother's for lunch while our car was repaired at a nearby shop. We ordered breaded cauliflower for an appetizer (crispy, perfectly deep fried in clean oil), a small pizza, and chicken fettucine alfredo. Food was very good! Lunch was $40 plus tip, we... read more

Everybody else seems to be praising their pizza - and probably rightfully so. Well, I never had any, but every time I go there I order a baked sub - hot or cold with different toppings. No matter what - they are all good. The bread is so amazing, but I never thought about writing a review, until I bought... More

The pizza debate always seems to be among Canyon, College and Bells. Brother's is the best slice in State College though! Too bad they close early though...

One of the more sit-down restaurants in the Brother's chain of mosly unaffiliated pizza stores. Clean and mostly efficient. Not gourmet Italian, but yummy nonetheless. Full meals, subs, pizza.

Stopped in with my daughter while in State College to drop her off at Penn State. The place was packed at lunch time, which we took a a good sign. We ordered a 1/2 dozen garlic rolls w/marinara sauce and a sausage Pizza. The garlic rolls were huge, but just average I would say! However, the pizza was excellent! Good... More

Come on - it's a pizza place. But with burgers and salads and everything you'd expect at an Italian restaurant. And service was excellent.

We asked the desk clerk at the motel for a good local pizza restaurant that he would take his parents to. He suggested Brothers and it was Great. The pizza was excellent, good crust, good toppings, great atmosphere and great service.

I tried the Thursday special, grilled chicken with french fries. It was around $8. Kaiser bun was the best part. Chicken was dry, french fries were plentiful and not terribly tasty. Not sure why this place comes as recommended. I suppose if you are into 80-s pop-and-mom scene, you may like this place better. Also, I have not tried the... More
