Stopped for lunch with my son. Roast beef always a great sandwich and roast pork was perfection. Great stop any lunch or dinner.

If you like a beef sandwich, this is the place to go. It is right by the airport. We got our rental car and headed straight there and were not disappointed!!!! Highly recommend.

Just beat the lunch rush showing up at 11:30. Charlie himself was at the helm and everything was outstanding. Beef on Weck for me, burgers for the boys and a chicken for my wife. Absolutely the best milkshakes I've ever had, wish we lived closer!

If you visit Buffalo forget the iconic chicken wings, head straight for Charlie the Butcher for some beef on weck. What is weck? - a very tasty, salty roll that is the perfect partner for melt in your mouth roast beef. Close to the airport...More

By far the best Beef on Weck I've had. The meat is amazingly tender and lean. It was perfect with just a touch of horseradish. The side of coleslaw was fantastic as well. I can't wait to try something else on the menu during my...More

I hadn't been to Charlie's in a few years and forgot how good they were. Beef was freshly carved upon ordering and placed on a very fresh, authentic weck roll. Sandwich was still ready very quick, faster than many "fast food" places. The soup of...More

This place is an old school sandwich store. The beef weck is very tasty and fresh. ( though not big). The potato wedges are huge and good. I liked the cucumber salad. Rice pudding was ok.

Charlie the Butcher was there the night we went! I almost asked for his autograph! The beef on weck is the BEST there is! The beef is cut from the roast in front of you for each sandwich. I eat mine on a "plain" roll...More

Feel free to ask for Charlie's autograph if you see him. It may be smeared with carrot juice for some soup he might be creating, but you can ask.

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.

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.
