Alright.... so this is a monumental Pizza review. I’ve been meaning to get out to Charlie’s...but opening at 4PM and being far away from my general location...I wasn’t able to get here sooner. The hype was real....and the pizza is legit. Let’s go through it.... CASH only...NO slices...Limited hours... it all screams of a great pizza spot...and it IS. I drove a ways to pick it up...and literally had to re-heat it at home. Guess what... it doesn’t matter. Literally no grease, excellent cheese, excellent sauce, excellent crust. Paper thin, great balance. Ladies and gentleman...this is the best slice in/around the Northeast and maybe beyond. No BS. It’s not “fancy” Fishtown pizza...you won’t find fresh basil, etc here. This is just hardcore, generational Pizza. Over 120 reviews...never awarded a slice in the 9’s...but now is the time. Charlie’s is a must visit if you’re ever in/around Northeast Philadelphia. That’s a review...a big one.

By far, the best pizza in the city! Homemade fresh crispy crust and great tasting cheese. Hardly any flop or grease! For me, it is a perfect sauce to cheese ratio. Don’t think I’ve ever tasted a pizza quite this good. Vince’s Pizza (same family as Charlie’s) on Grant Ave is probably just as good but Charlie’s has been around longer.

Awesome!! Super old school. All the guys working there looked to be on their 60’s & 70’s. So I guess they know what they’re doing. The Cheese is DYNAMITE, very tasty and the sauce is thick and sweet. Good crispy crust. This place is up there as top 5 in Philly for sure!

Forgot to take a picture but half was cheese. Good crunchy crust, good sauce, wish the was more cheese but very good pizza!
