Nothing fancy, a few booths and tables, main attraction is the food. Ordered the Beef on Wreck and it delivered. Food was great, service was as expected. Definitely recommend to anyone local or visiting.

First visit so figured better get the beef. The bun was great, beef was warm and did not have much taste. Fries are frozen not fresh cut. Place looks like it needs a good cleaning. Don't really get the interest.

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.
