Unfortunately Del Carmen's East is currently closed as a result of a fire. They are looking to either renovate or rebuild. There is no word yet as to when exactly they are going to reopen. A lot of people here in Decatur have complained that they have not been open and really miss this place as they do have very... More

We live 45 minutes from Decatur but love to go antiquing at the Wabash Depot and the 2 places down the road. We asked where to go for good pizza and someone suggested Del Carmen's. We LOVED it! Very reasonable prices, and the pizza is really good! No skimping on the cheese and just the right amount of sauce -... More

Pizza was great, including the gluten free crust! Definitely the best GF pizza in the area. The rest of the family loved their regular pizza also! Quick friendly service.

A fairly typical pizza place offering very tasty pizza at a very fair price. Nothing fancy. Long tradition. Good friendly service.

Pizza was amazing - the thin crust is very thin and handmade - very different and tasty! If you are in Decatur and searching for Pizza try this place!

I am a Decatur native in my 50's, but for whatever reason I have never made it out to Del Carmen's Pizza until somewhat recently -- I have heard so many rave reviews I thought I needed to make the effort. Not impressed. To be fair, I prefer deep dish Chicago-style; I prefer substantial toppings. The pizza my wife and... More

Ate here for a business meeting. Thin crust, half Italian sausage, and jalapenos. Sauce was great, service was great.

This place makes fantastic pizza pies! This review is coming from a pizza maker and a pizza connoisseur. As long as you like a sweet sauce, I believe you won't be disappointed. The quality and test of this pizza is fantastic. My family and I have been here many times and have not once had a bad pizza pie.

While wandering around Decatur searching for food we stumbled upon Del Carmen's. We were very happy with the find - pizza was tasty and quick - the thin crust dough was perfectly prepared. This place is worth the stop if you are in the area - you won't regret it.

Thank mdively
