I'm not a big sandwich person, and when I do, I don't usually go for beef. But, when in Rome... Geez Louise - these sandwiches are incredible! I LOVE the buns with caraway & salt - reminded me of the salt sticks at college. The beef....The beef! Scrumptious! Delicious! Savory! Falls apart in your mouth. And the waffle fries with... More

We started and ended a recent trip to Niagara and Alexandria Bay in Buffalo. One of the things on our to-do list in any new town is to try their local food. In Buffalo you automatically think wings if you're from out of town. We kept seeing signs for "carved beef on weck" and finally wondered what the deal was.... More

Charlie's quality of beef never changes. It is slow cooked at a low temperature. the result is prime beef that is so tender that you barely need to chew. The daily specials like the filet mignon wrapped in bacon sandwich and the pulled pork are not only heavenly but sold at truly bargain prices considering the quality and quantity given.... More

Best roast beef sandwiches. Every time someone arrives in town, we have to stop at "Charlie's". Sometimes we go again when heading back to the airport. I have even taken Charlie's roast beef ( in a cooler ) out of town because People can't get roast beef on "weck" any place else. We like Charlie's the best!

All the food is great. Charley's is a Buffalo icon and a one of a kind experience you can't find anywhere else. Red and white checkered table cloths, counter service, and period pictures and decorations make it a must for anyone who hasn't been at least once.

We visited Charlie the Butcher in Williamsville last week. This is one of the Mecca's of Beef on Weck in Buffalo and I do understand why. The restaurant itself is a no-frills fast food set up where you order at the window when you come in and then find a seat until they call your name. They had numerous workers... More

Charlie the Butcher is a great place to have Buffalo's famous Beef on Weck Sandwich ( Roast Beef on a Kimmelweck roll). It's a tiny little place with fresh carved to order sandwiches, Roast Beef, Turkey. I've only had the Roast Beef, it's why I go there! The sweet potato fries are good too!

We always stop at Charlie the Butcher for our Beef on Weck fix. Great sandwich, very friendly people. Carved to order this sandwich is a Buffalo classic and this is the best place to get your fix.

Talk about one of the best little hole in the wall type places on earth and I will bring up Charlie the Butcher's. I have had to travel to Buffalo several times over the last few months for business and one of the locals told me about Charlie's. The Beef on Weck sandwich is out of this world (along with... More

I always bring out-of-town visitors here for the one-of-a-kind beef on weck. I personally like the sweet sauce/relish, but most enjoy the usual salty meat juice or horseradish. Go in the summer to sit outside and soak up the sun.
