I take all of my out of town visitors here! - Charlie the Butcher has the best beef on weck in the area. The daily specials are fantastic, too....prime rib sandwiches, kielbasa...Skip the Anchor Bar -- visit Charlie the Butcher instead!

Charlie the Butcher delivers iconic Buffalo fare in a fun and retro setting. As you enter, the grill is blazing away...today's special is the grilled tenderloin sandwich. I opted for a cup of hearty split pea soup with nice chuncks of carrot along with the Beef on Weck. Topped with horseradish, my lunch is complete! CTB is unpretentious and is... More

Love coming here for the roast beef. They have amazing homemade soups and perfectly seasoned turkey and ham but you just can't beat their roast beef sandwich with the bun dipped in au juis! So much flavor and the tender roast beef melts in your mouth. I had the fish fry here which was surprisingly good. Soups really hit the... More

I always make it point when passing through to eat here. Amazing fresh cut meats and homemade salads not to mention the old school milkshakes. Definitely a must do stop while in the area.

Before making my comments, I must admit that I didn't order "The Lunch" that everyone orders here, which is the beef on weck. so I probably should make any disparaging remarks. But I thought my lunch was very average.....I ordered the "Chef Salad," which was little more than a "clamshell" pre-packaged box of greens, with little else on it besides... More

We go here solely for the Beef on Weck. I don't think it can be beat. Sliced fresh off a Medium / Medium Rare roast beef and served on a Kummelweck bun (a bun topped with salt and caraway seeds), it's amazing. The ambiance is basically ancient diner, but I guess now that's part of it's charm. They also serve... More

Located so close to the Buffalo airport, it's the first thing I get when I fly into Buffalo. Charlies has been around for years, and offers one of the best, if not the best, beef on weck in the area. Some have complained about the cost. A tip: the meat (not the sandwiches) is available in local supermarkets, as advertised... More

We stopped by chance after seeing an ad in the airport. You walk in and you are transported back in time. It's totally original and the food was unbelievably good. Every time I've come to Buffalo I've heard about a Weck sandwich but have never had an original. Charlie's is the real deal!!! It was like a party in my... More
