A few friends recommended Brickers to me, so we dined there on our way through Hershey. We probably should have ordered the pizza instead of our sandwiches. My burger took quite a while to arrive, was bland, and was likely previously frozen. Sorry, but I probably won't return.

Bricker's is closed and, I believe, out of business. Store is gutted, everything is gone. Read about some code violations earlier in the year, now they are gone. Adios, Bricker's.

Passed by this place on the way back to the hotel. Plenty of parking in the back. Ordered our food at the counter then you find a table and are called up when your order is ready. Pizza and wings were fantastic, just the right kind of pizza dough, not too thick or too thin. Wings had plenty of meat... More

Legit pizza place, park in back. Local off the path place worth the trip to Hershey just for their pizza. Family operated for 17 years.

We live locally and have never been to this restaurant. I had a few friends tell me about it, so we stopped in. Plenty of parking in the back. Nice full menu. Beer selection - if you please. My only error was, we went for "Old World Pizza" (cheese on the bottom - sauce on the top) and I thought... More

Best in Hershey by FAR! The old World Pizza is really yummy. I live near the place and go there once a month at least.

Sometimes we visit as a family or a group of friends. This time solo. Especially LOVE the Old World Pizza. When family comes from out of town they always ask if we can order or visit for some Old World. Complimented with a bottle of Troeg's Mad Elf and life is good. Service is quick and friendly. Highly recommend!!!

It's not a bad thing when I say typical pizza place. It was a venue with a counter to place your order and tables to sit at to eat. Nothing fancy; actually a little run down as many of the chairs were torn. However, the stromboli we had was very good. Located near hotels and Hershey attractions (up the street... More

Downtown Hershey stop for pizza and sandwiches. Grab a cold beer in the process. Speciality is their Stromboli.
