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.

Still waiting and wishing for a cheesesteak joint to open up in Claymont. It's over priced and below the standard ( on many levels). If your at this spot, jump back in the car and get a REAL cheesesteak cause your 20mins away from Philly. If your stuck in Claymont this place and Claymont steakshop is exactly the same. Blindfolded... More

Have to agree with the previous reviewer, they have the best steak sandwiches in Claymont, DE. I usually get one with mayo, hot peppers, pickles and pepperoni. Sometimes mushrooms too. I pretty much always get a Yoohoo to go with it. It is so good.

Charlie's pizza and sandwich shop is the best place to get a sub or a steak sandwich in claymont. It's easy to find right off of 95 or 495. Fast service and courteous staff makes for a great lunch or dinner.
