They also held a drawing for two $20 gift certificates and these were won by Kelly Trepanier and Pamela Leneau.  Check out their extensive menu items.

Brothers 3 is located at 106 Superior Ave. Oconto and still seems to be the favorite spot for homemade pizza especially the Deluxe. Enjoy a menu item on their deck overlooking the Oconto River.
