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.

The double dip beef on weck sandwich with some horseradish is a treat. Charlie's is one of the very best I have ever enjoyed. Good quality beef carved right in front of you. They also have roast turkey and charbroil grilled specials available. DELICIOUS!

This was our first time in Buffalo area and we were told we had to try the beef on weck. Very good, but the creamy cucumbers and German potato salad were even better. If you're in the area you have to stop in. If you not, make a special trip, like we did from Niagara Falls.

We all had the beef in weck, and we all thought it was delicious! Melt in your mouth tender, and the flavor was good too. I also had the creamy cucumber salad, which I loved. Someone else at the table had the onion rings, and said they were very good. The cookies were huge, and my husband enjoyed his. Next time, I want to try the rice pudding! Definitely not a fancy place, but quaint, and worth the visit! My teenage son said if he lived in Buffalo, he would never eat Arby's again!
