A locals favorite! This is a very unique place and has been around for years. We decided to eat in the back this time, rather than take it home, so it would be hot and fresh. It is a real dive in the seating area, and very few seats, but that's what makes it unique as well. You have to... More

Charlie's pizza is a perennial favorite for over 50 years. John and all the others who've worked with him have made him as famous as Pat's Steaks (Sandwiches) in Philadelphia. John's ingredients are top-notch superior to all. Every visit to Norristown, PA, always begins and ends with multiple visits to Charlie's Pizza. His prices are very reasonable, his pizza has...

I have been going here for years and it some of the best pizza that you can get in the Philly suburb area. I would highly recommend their plain pie and also their "red top" in which the sauce goes on last. Their specialty pizzas are also great. They are known for their pizza and beer, but I have had...

I like Charlie's pizza crust. It is thin. It quite thin as typical New York style think crust. But i like their pizza. I have not tried their famous red top but I am pleased with their cheese pizza.

I had never had red top pizza before we moved to this area. It's delicious and one of my favorite pizza options anywhere.

I have been eating Charlie's red-top pizza for ten years -- it's consistently amazing -- and unfortunately I moved away from this area, but I get it as much as I possibly can. (A red top is the sauce on top of the cheese). I don't know about the other styles of pizza -- i don't order anything other than... More

We have been ordering here for years. They make sort of an upside down pizza where the sauce is on top of the cheese. It is extremely yummy! Great pizza place for take out!

Have been eating this pizza since I was a Kid. Forget about the décor; it's as old as I am, and then some. But, the pizza is consistently cheesy (cheese top) or traditional tomato top. Anyone in Montgomery County, PA who eats pizza should have a pie at this pizzeria. Just don't expect warm fuzzies from the older woman on... More

Not much to look at on the outside, scary on the inside, but great pizza. That;s all you need. I went there after siri gave it as an option for pizza. I wasn't disappointed.
