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!!

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!

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!

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... More

You shouldn't miss Charlie's red top pizza if you're in the area, and if you're not, it's worth the drive!! The service is always fast and friendly. Cool, low key atmosphere with lots of neat memorabilia (Beatles, the Doors, old signs). Lots of great beer to choose from. What more could you want? The red top is by far the... More

A little hole in the wall place but the pizza is to die for. Thin, crispy and hot. Wonderful sauce and toppings. Every time that we are in the Philadelphia area we make a trip to Charlie's. They sure don't have pizza like this on the west coast!

The crust has corn meal in it and is very crunchy. Must have the red to with roasted red peppers!

Hands down the best pizza around. They don't deliver and they don't have to. It's delicious. Try the red top!

If you like sweet sugary sauce on your pizza, maybe you'll like this stuff. Norristown is famous for several really good pizza places. Charlies is not one of them. Also, I asked for a can of beer which was given to me completely filthy on the top. I had to ask for another. If you want really good tasting pizza,... More
