A Buffalo favorite

This is REAL roast beef, not the sludge they serve you at Arby's. Juicy, well-done as asked and served on a kimmelweck roll. It doesn't get any better. Not fancy - just great food at fair prices.

Any sandwich on the menu is a treat! True Buffalo area fish fry on Fridays! Take out or eat in. Good services at fair prices.

Shuffling off from Buffalo; Philadelphia. Rochester. NYC. Hershey. Finger Lakes Corning. .. or the airport. We want lunch and not a chain! Give Charlie a try as the experience can be as good as lunch or do the take- out for the road. If you can't wickem join 'em.

We at here on the last day of our three night visit to Buffalo. We ate beef on weck at three separate places and apparently we saved the best for last. The sandwich was fantastic! The staff was friendly and the restaurant itself was charming. We were also introduced to Weber's Horseradish mustard which we later purchased in an attempt... More

We loved the food and the location was perfect by the airport. So glad we didn't have to find some fast food joint! This is real food. Delicious. I took a star off because the decor could use an update but would definitely go there again if I ever go to buffalo again!

This is supposed to be a restaurant that has good meat, but I question how well they maintain it. They provide fairly small portions that are expensive. The sides did not look appetizing and also seemed high price. It did not come across as a clean restaurant at all.

With every trip we make to visit family in Buffalo requires a stop at Charlie the Butcher. This is the best place in Buffalo area to get a Beef on Weck. Outstanding, fresh rolls, MR beef carved to order. The horseradish will clear out your sinus for sure. My mother had a bowl of beef vegetable soup and loved it... More

We usually make it back to Buffalo a couple of times/year to visit my wife's family. As we leave the airport the landmark for turning left is "Charlie the Butcher" and I always ask my wife it is any good? Finally, she got tired of me asking so we decided to stop in for lunch and now I regret passing... More
