We stopped by Charlie the Butcher’s for the prime rib dinner. My husband likes his medium rare and I like mine medium well done. Both were delicious! The thick shakes were also very good. We would definitely try this small place again.

As our name suggests, Charlie's grandfather started the business as an actual butcher shop in downtown Buffalo in 1915. Three generations later, Charlie The Butcher took the roasts out of the butcher case, slow roasts them, carves them with the skill of a surgeon (or butcher) and has perfected Buffalo's Famous Beef on Weck Sandwich.
