I lived down the street from Charlie's for most of my life, and, even though I'ved moved away, I still go back -- regularly -- read WEEKLY -- for their super great pizza.\r

Even my tween daughter, who eats almost NOTHING, eats -- I mean

Great pies. Been going there since they had 2 stores (one on lower Rising Sun Ave. in Hunting Park area), about 50+ yrs. ago. My 6yo loves it. My 84+ mother loves it. My KY born wife loves it. A lost art.

Pros: Pepperoni Large

Cons: in the 'hood

If you want just plain good pizza, try this place. It's definitely Philly style with thin crust and lots of gravy. All they do here is pizza so they've got it down to a science.

We stop in here from time to time when we are in the area. It's not my favorite pizza in the city, but it's worth going back. Friendly service and decent prices. It's definitely worth checking out if you're hungry and in the area.

I have been eating at Charlie's for 37 years! My family continues the tradition of eating at Charlie's every chance we get. Although my family now lives over 100 miles away, we go out of our way to eat at Charlie's if we are even remotely close to the area when traveling. The staff remembers all the regular and old customers. Charlie's pizza is by far the best i have ever tasted.

"Great sauce, not enough cheese" pretty much describes the pizza here. The sauce is probably the best I've ever had in Philly but Charlies does not put enough cheese on the pizza and the dough was certainly undercooked.

My family has been a customer of Charlie's since the 1960's. I was raised on their tomato pies. The taste is unmatched. The only problem is waiting a few minutes for it to cool off when reaching the table. The smell is so enticing it's worth the pain of a burnt mouth to enjoy their product. They are very friendly when picking up your pie and they know most of their customers by name. I am proud to be one of the faithful.

Pros: Quiet surrounding for an enjoyable snack or meal.

Cons: They don't deliver. And they allow children.

By far the best pizza in Philly, not your typical/terrible thick, chewy stuff. You will find similar pizza in Italy. A no frills place where people travel from miles around to get to. The neighborhood is deteriorating, but Charlies brings us back there. I am a 3rd generation Charlies eater and now take my 2 year old son the way my grandfather took my dad and he took me. Sit back, bring a few beers or some wine and enjoy a piping hot pie.

We loved Charlie's! The regular pizza is a thin crust; it comes with cheese on top, or sauce on top. As a rule I do not like thin crust, but this has perfect and original homemade sauce, and perfect cheese. The crust is firm enough to eat neat, with no mess, flavor very good. Unfortunately the thin crust leaves you still hungry. The Sicillian is more of everything. We ordered with extra cheese too! It can be a bit messy, but it's worth it. Ten Stars! Service was fast and friendly. Tables use real free standing chairs, and the eating area is large! Expect to pay about $10 a pie. Is this too much? Ten years ago I could still buy 3 large pies for $10 delivered. Today my corner shop sells 2 for $12. Sadly $10 is too much for my family, except maybe for a very special treat.

I grew-up in the neighborhood, now live 60 miles away, it's still worth the trip. Distinctive taste, not greasy, definitely different. The taste that comes to my mind when someone says, "Let's get a pizza". It's the only pizza I will break-down and eat now that Atkins rules my diet. The atmosphere is proletariat and "Philly", no ostentation here, just mouth-watering pies. Charlie's, I love you. I want to hop in my car right now!

I love the way they put the cheese on first, then mix in the pizza sauce. The crust is light and thin. It really is a great combination for a great pizza. It is always fresh. When possible, eat the pizza in their dining area. It is best when fresh out of the oven. The only thing better than a Charlie's pizza with pepperoni, is having a slice out of the box the next morning with a glass of cold milk!

This is no nonsense pizza. No slices and no delivery. It's eat in or take out. This is by far the best pizza in Philly. I grew up on this pizza, we had this for dinner every Friday night. It is worth the drive from the 5 county area.

And what's best is that the pizza is even better the next morning for breakfast!
