I was visiting from the West Coast and I'm a roast beef lover. Charlie's is one of the good ones, rich roast beef, soft onion roll, very delicious. The sauce has some tang, but not too overpowering. Onion rings are your typical fried rings, nothing to exclaim "wow". Good place to go.

We went here a few times a couple of years back but will NEVER go again when I saw the cook behind the counter slicing rare, bloody roast beef with NO GLOVES ON then placing the heaping meat on our onion rolls. Reported this place to the Middleton Board Of Health YUCK!!

We were visiting parents in Middleton and wanted to bring lunch. We stopped at Charlie's and it was very busy and very clean. The place smelled great and the pizza looked amazing as it went by. But I was on a mission for a great roast beef sandwich and that is what I got. Six meals all terrific and all... More

Charlie's Roast Beef is perfectly cooked, tasty and sliced just right. The onion rings are a great compliment. Another favorite is the veal cutlet with pasta, sauce and cheese. You can't go wrong at Charlie's.

I don't know why it says "CLOSED" on this site, since we ate there today-need to correct this! We are from Beverly, so we do know roast beef sandwiches. Decided to eat lunch here before hitting Richardson's for frozen yogurt, and glad we did. Very good, tender roast beef on a warm buttered/toasted roll with spicy sauce. Little more expensive...

So having just moved to New England we thought we would try one of our local roast beef shops that are so popular up here. We were pleased with the large menu, a lot more to choose from. Food was very good. I got the roast beef and my partner got the steak sandwich which was huge. Food was fresh... More
