Nestled in the heart of Downtown Medford at the corner of 9th St and Central Ave, Ollie’s Brooklyn slices is a culinary gem that brings the essence of New York City’s iconic pizza culture to Downtown Medford. Specializing in authentic New York-style pizza, Ollie’s is quickly becoming a favorite among locals and visitors alike — thanks to its great location on Central and near the transit center, the library, and excellent parking! 

At Ollie’s, every slice tells a story of perfection. Their expertly crafted pies boast a flawless combination of flavors and textures; so iconic to the New York-style. The crust, cooked to crispy, golden perfection, provides the ideal canvas for their savory creations. Each huge slice is generously adorned with a well-seasoned sauce that perfectly complements the premium toppings, with options like sausage, royal supreme, garden veggie, and, of course, classic pepperoni. Plus, be sure to check out their creative daily specials. During our visit the special was a Greek yogurt-marinated chicken, fig, feta, and tzatziki.

But Ollie’s isn’t just about pizza; it’s an experience. As you step into the restaurant, you’re immediately enveloped in an atmosphere that pays homage to the vibrant energy of New York City’s iconic pizzerias, as well as the NYC skateboarding scene. The decor, adorned with nods to NYC culture, sports, street art, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, sets the stage for a comfortable and welcoming dining experience. Not only that — but the arcade in the back is free. The kids loved this! You would never realize this was formerly a Thai restaurant or a classic Italian spot (we miss you, Noonie’s and Paisans!). 

Beyond their delicious pizzas, Ollie’s also boasts a selection of local craft beers, sodas, and other beverages. Whether you’re a beer aficionado or prefer something non-alcoholic, there’s something to satisfy every palate. And don’t forget to indulge in their legendary garlic knots and side of ranch — garlicky goodness that nearly steals the show.

Conveniently open from 11am to 9pm every day, Ollie’s welcomes you to savor their irresistible fare at your leisure. Whether you’re grabbing a quick slice on your lunch break or settling in for a leisurely dinner with friends, Ollie’s Brooklyn Slices offers an unforgettable dining experience that celebrates the best of New York City’s culinary and cultural heritage. So, why not stop by and savor a slice of the Big Apple right here in our own downtown?
