BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Well-known and well-liked when it comes to this mouth-watering staple in Western New York.
"Charlie is famous for carving Buffalo's iconic sandwich," Tony Miranda, manager of Charlie the Butcher's Carvery. "The beef on weck: sliced top round on a kaiser roll with caraway seeds and kosher salt."
With seven locations including express stops and catering, Charlie the Butcher's is still open for business with plenty of meat to go around.
"We are trying not to make too many adjustments," Miranda said. "We want to be here for the community and provide our services for the community because there's still a need for that."
The COVID-19 pandemic is part of the reason Charlie, the owner, is laying low these days. But the business is staying busy, serving its loyal customers.
"Charlie's always been a community-first guy," said Miranda." He's doing everything he can to support the community and we're getting a lot of new faces too because they're out here trying support us and what we're doing as well."
But Charlie the Butcher's is doing more than just providing customers with their everyday sandwiches. They're also helping and supporting other local businesses. With the Easter season approaching the restaurant brought in butter lambs, Wardynski's polish sausage, and Easter polish pastries from D&L Bakery.
The orders keep coming, but safety is their top priority. The Carvery location in the Elmwood Village has added hand sanitizing stations and has turned into a one-stop shop, offering essential items like egg and even toilet paper.
"We already have the means to get these things," Miranda said. "We're already bringing these things in the restaurant already, why don't we provide these things to the community because people need them."
A staple in Western New York that's still open for business reminding customers to stay safe, stay healthy, and eat well.
