Charlies is a small pizza shop that makes pizza the old traditional way. Even the prices are like the old days when a large pie was $7 and toppings were $.75 cents. The crust has a nice crunch, the sauce is thick and dark red, and the cheese isn't oily Charlie's is a local gem! So if you're sick of... More

The fresh roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberry sub is to die for! Much better than the other local place. It has also has zingy American cheese that sends it over the top! Been buying one 1-2 times a week for weeks; we cannot get enough! No place to eat in, take out only, in a sad shopping center but is a... More

Most people know Charlie's Pizza for their cheese steaks, but owner's Charlie and Sil make the best specialty pizzas I've ever had. A well kept secret.. the Clams Casino and the Broccoli Ricotta are both are over the top. I've never eaten a better version of these pizzas anywhere else. Charlie also makes a cheese steak that is better than... More

It has been a few years since I have been here, so decided why not try them again. Had a very delicious Cheese steak with mushrooms, mayo, hot & sweet peppers, pepperoni and pickles. Will definitely come back here, so far 2nd to Steak Works in the North Wilmington area.

We haven't been really impressed with the pizza places we've tried since we moved her 4 years ago. We honestly have printed a list and started checking them off... (we love pizza, who doesn't honestly?) We finally came to Charlies. I have to say we went here thinking we would sit down and have pizza with the kids but it's... More

I used to come to Charlie's all of the time for lunch when I worked in the area, since I was in the area on a Saturdy, I thought I'd give it a try. I was hoping for some type of special but since it was a Saturday they had none, so I ordered the 8" personal pizza made on... More

When we want new York style pizza we order from here. Everything's been good so far. Their pizza crust is very good. We also tried their cheese steak and was good to but still prefer claymont cheese steaks.
