I moved to central PA from the New York City area about 2 years ago and one of the first things on my to-do list was to find a good spot for take out pizza. I tried a couple of places and wasn't overly impressed with the quality of the pizza. Truthfully, the first time I ever went to Brother... More

Stopped in for just a slice. Typical strip mall pizza joint. Pick out a slice pay while they heat it up. Sit and wait pick up your order. This is a family store with not much business. They need a kick in the butt and rember why they opened this place up. Friendly service serve your costomers. If you have... More

I went in to grab a slice of pizza. The guy there grabbed the pizza with his dirty hands (no gloves) and put the pizza in the oven for less than a minute. Pizza came out cold but I was hungry so I ate it. Found a piece of hair halfway into the slice. DO NOT GO HERE!

Are you kidding me?!!! Talk about first impressions. I will NEVER set foot in this place again. From the moment we walked in, we debated walking back out. The woman working was dirty and not pleasant. There was an older man sitting at a table with his head in his hand. Not knowing he also worked there. We ordered a... More

My family ordered take-out from Brother Joe's for lunch. We ordered three subs and one grilled chicken salad. The sub rolls were grilled too long and were burned/blackened. The salad was tasteless and the chicken dry. The woman who took our order over the phone was gruff and argumentative. When I ordered the "half sub" she told me they didn't... More

Our experience shows that you can't discount a place until you try it. The food we had here would stand up against some of the best we've had at similar places. My wife had a slice of broccoli tomato pizza and enjoyed it very much. My daughter had a sausage and peppers sub and I had the chicken parm sub.... More

Ordered 2 slices and one pizza sub and the slices were so mushie that I had to throw away from digust! They made my wives sub wring, after she explained exactly what she wanted and the cook just yelled and stated to give her the money back. I will never return.

They are using synthetic cheese to make those horrible pizza pies . Avoid this place , and these people . This might be the Worst Pizza in PA.

If you want great pizza, there are several other local pizza places that are better than this place. Try Jo-Jos in Hummelstown, Sorrentos in Hershey, or Jo-Jos on 22. The only way it is still in business is because the out-of-towners visiting Hershey don't know any better. The owners and everyone that works here are rude and mean. They always... More
