My parents started eating Charlie's pizza since the early 1950's. Our family is now in it's 4th generation... and haven't stopped! And in fact, I was the first person to ever have a white pizza there because when I was around 5 (in 1958) I had an issue with tomato's for a while, so they were nice enough to make... More

If you're looking for pizza then this is the spot. Definitely one of the top ten pizza shops in all of Philly. I'm second generation Charlie ' s pizza lover. They only sell whole pies , "no slices" . The interior is dated but the food is great.

If you want GREAT PIZZA, at a fair price---this is the place. No Nonsense restaurant. No slices. No credit cards. No delivery. Have it our way. The Un-Burger King! I have been coming here for 50 years, and it has always been delicious. If I order a pie to take out, I can barely control myself, until I get home.... More

This is buy far the best pizza in Philly. The area is definitely not good to walk around in but definitely worth a stop if your in Philadelphia. They offer only pizza and Stromboli's with your choice of toppings and fountain sodas. So good they don't have to deliver, that's right if you want one of their pizzas it's either... More

Been to Charlie's many times - if this were a stock - I be a majority shareholder. The pie is excellent - no frills. You are going there for... THE PIZZA- PERIOD. If you are going for atmosphere, the latest gourmet pie, to be seen, the view or any other reason other than just to get a great pizza -... More

Best pizza around but not in the greatest location. No frills place, not fancy looking but you can't beat the pizza. I will drive out of my way to get it but I'm not going shopping in the area. If you're on the Boulevard you drive past it all the time, stop, get your pizza and enjoy.

Charlie's pizza is located on the boulevard (southbound lanes), in a somewhat shady area. While I wouldn't recommend walking around the neighborhoods in that area, I would recommend getting Charlie's. It is easily my favorite pizza in Philadelphia. The prices aren't bad, the pizza is great, and it's BYOB. It's a family owned business and has been around for a... More
