“Great Pizza, So-so Ambience”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

First of all, the pizza is delicious. The thin crust was hearty and crisp, the cheese was flavorful and tangy, and the toppings were plentiful. The sauce was a touch on the sweet side for me, but that is just personal preference. We had a pepperoni and a combo. As for the ambience, well, it was our first time there and they were not patient waiting for us to order. We had someone with an aversion to red sauce, so we were hoping for a white sauce pizza. The staff was unsympathetic. They don't serve that kind of pizza. The place is also a definitive dive. It was clean, but don't expect fine dining in.

“Best Pizza Anywhere”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Best Pizza on earth. Just make sure you get the redtop. It truly is incomparable. It's actually hard to eat any other pizza once you've had Charlie's before!!

“Great local pizzeria!”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

We discovered Charlie's Pizzeria within the last year and we love it! It's a small mom and pop style shop. We get the normal large plain (tried the Red Top, but we still prefer their normal) - it's delicious! They also make great strombolis!
Try it!

“Favorite Local Pizza”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Hole in the wall pizza joint with wonderful pizza! Employees are so-so but we go for the food. They also carry beer. The furniture has been there for about 50 years, but folks don't seem to mind. Try it!

“Okay pizza - don't make a special trip”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

We've been to Charlie's a half-dozen times and have never thought it anything more than just Okay. I made a point to get the "Red Top Pizza"on the most recent dinner, after a grandchild's school baseball game, and couldn't figure out what all the fuss was about? I don't think there are any really good pizza shops in the Central Montgomery County area, northwest of Philadelphia.
