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

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.
