Tasty and local

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.

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...

I really like their red pizza sauce. I got an antipasta type of salad with Italian dressing. The dough is perfect..chewy crispy.

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.

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

We went there on a Wednesday night about 5 pm. There were a few people in the restaurant. We were seated quickly. One of us had salad and it was very good. It didn't just have lettuce and tomatoes. It had banana peppers, olives and pimentos. We had a large pizza half plain and have tomatoes and mushrooms. The pizza... More
