True Buffalo food. Best sandwich around. Don't forget the onion rings. This is a must stop every time we are here. Close to the airport.

My husband LOVED the beef on weck. We heard we had to try it and he was quite impressed. The bread was heavenly even though Charlie says he's not a baker, he's a butcher. The horseradish was very strong, but he loved it still. Just...More

Another of Buffalo's restaurants that J needed to stop by. Busy during lunch but fast service. Ordered the Beef on Weck medium well with grilled asparagus and an ice tea. Charlie is here, see photos. Excellent! This place is close to BUF airport.

Traveling for business we arrived in Buffalo in the early afternoon, selected Charlie the butcher on recommendation. Parking was easy, and there was a small fast moving line at 2:00pm on a Monday. In my mind that is a good sign. The ordering process was...More

Welcome to the "secret club", Michael!!! The Seinfeld reference was great except someone should have said "No Pork for You!!" I hope you'll try our signature sandwich, Beef on Weck, on your next visit. Thanks for taking the time to review.

Needless to say that they have a great selection of slow-cooked, sliced-in-front-of-you meat.... Equally impressive, however, is their old-fashioned, mouth-watering creamy cucumber salad! I wish they had a better selection of things to drink or more creative desserts besides cellophaned cookies, but not bad over...More

Don't let the simple, 50's kitchen style decor put you off. The food is special. Charlie is famous for outstanding beef on weck but there are other meats to consider from prime rib, BBQ pork, corned beef, turkey etc. Great food at reasonable cost.

Description
As our name suggests, Charlie's grandfather started the business as an actual butcher shop in downtown Buffalo in 1915. Three generations later, Charlie The Butcher took the roasts out of the butcher case, slow roasts them, carves them with the skill of a surgeon (or butcher) and has perfected Buffalo's Famous Beef on Weck Sandwich.
