Charlie always delivers

Went here over the weekend. I ordered the carved turkey and my friend ordered the roast beef on weck with a bowl of soup. Both orders were delicious. I have also gone many times to the one in the wllucott square building. Equally delicious. Consistently good!!

Of course you have to try chicken wings when you come to Buffalo, but if you don't get to Charlie's for a beef on wreck sandwich (or two), then you've missed a taste of authentic Buffalo. If you're a serious carnivore, you have to Give it a try, you can thank me later

Not much to say other than the food was great! This is a good choice for a quick lunch stop. They also offer delicious catering.

Charlie's offers a wide selection of comfort food at a reasonable price. If you are going to the airport early, and plan to eat at the airport, I strongly suggest you stop at Charlie's instead for better quality and price.

Charlie's Kitchen is a simple, roadside restaurant where you order at a counter by the door and then take a seat or wait for take-out. Friendly young staff members man the order counter and dining counter inside. When we were there we watched Charlie prepare dishes including beef while we ate at the counter. The main item, beef on weck... More

Driving on our way to Cincinnati we stopped here and got 2 Beef on Wecks. Could not wait to drive home to get more! On the way back got a prime rib sandwich, fantastically tender.

Always excellent! If you want to taste a local favorite food, this is THE place for Beef on Weck. Small and very busy, nothing fancy, simply place your order and pick a seat. They will call your name when it's ready. Get out lots of napkins - it's a wonderfully messy sandwich. Jot down the address - for sure you'll... More
