Hand sliced beef is terrific

So it's close to noon, but we score a parking spot and the line is way out the door, but moving quickly. Then we are lucky enough to get a booth, because the place is small. The wonderful tender beef is hand sliced to perfection and piled high on a fresh kummelweck roll. Apply the horseradish... read more

I'm a foodie. I'll drive out of my way for the authentic, real deal. I'll eat at a dive if the food is tasty and homemade. Charlie's is such a spot. It will forever embody the best roast beef sandwich I have ever eaten. Beef was medium rare, thick sliced, piled high and moistened with the perfect amount of jus... More

OK, there is no pretentiousness to this place at all. You walk inside and order from the counter and they call your name when it's ready. Depending on what you ordered, could take up to 15 minutes because it's all carved to order, not ahead of time. I had the beef on weck and it was perfect - done to... More

The beef was good but not much of it for $7.00/sandwich. Still hungry an hour later after $17 for wife and me plus one Pepsi.

We get take-out from Charlie's a few times a month and it's always excellent. Roast beef is always tender and delicious and the kimmelweck roll it comes on is very good. There's always different side dishes to choose from and everyone we've had has been great. Soups are very good too. The dining area is a bit of a dive... More

We eat from Charlie's at least twice a month. Good portion sizes. Soup is excellent - homemade grandma tasting soup - yum yum !

This is a local favorite with a loyal following and a reputation with savvy travelers as well. The main location is close to the airport and after arriving after a long flight, it's absolutely the best place to grab a great meal with little or no effort. Of course, the focus is on great sandwiches; the famous "beef on weck"... More

I saw an episode on the food channel with regards to this restaurant. While on business I stopped and am I glad I did! I wanted to try their signature sandwich, the beef on a weck. It is fantastic! Lean beef that melts in your mouth and the weck roll complimented it, I added horseradish my sandwich. I also ordered... More

Love their " Real" Turkey Sandwich, comes with lots of hand sliced turkey, lettuce and tomatoe on a roll w side pickle. Heard the Roast beef on Kimelwick is great too, but a little too rare cooked for me, Some of the other items on their menu look really good too.

After the airport our first stop is Charlie the Butcher . Then a great beef on weck sandwich. Always enjoy the small town feel and good food.
