Visit The Charcoal Pit, The Small Town Diner In Delaware That's Been Around Since The 1950s

I am an avid traveler-- of both the United States and the world. My favorite spots are U.S. national parks, big cities, and anywhere I can practice my French. I have traveled to all but a handful of states and enjoy photographing the beauty I see along the way.
The Charcoal Pit, or simply “the Pit” as it’s called by locals, serves all the best diner fare and more at the North Wilmington location that started in 1956. It quickly grew from a teeny-tiny burger bar and even has a second location and a hearty menu today. Whether you’re golfing, tubing down the Brandywine, or going into the city of Wilmington, fuel up here first, so you’ll have plenty of energy to do it.
A meal at the Charcoal Pit is sure to fill you with both delicious food and camaraderie. Sample all of the tried-and-true recipes at either location. You’ll be planning your next visit before the first one is even over! Learn more about The Pit on its website or Facebook page.
