More DeLuca's? Yes please!

Did my server fall all over me to make me happy? No. But the service was good. Food good. Coffee cup full. Stomach full. Yuppies go elsewhere.

Huge portions of unbelievable piping hot fresh food! I have been eating here every time I am in Pittsburgh for the last 40 years and they never cease to amaze me. Great food at great prices prepared and served by an amazing staff. Hats off the ownership for not only surviving but thriving for more than 60 years in the... More

DeLuca's was a typical breakfast joint. Food was passable. Staff did their jobs. I guess they could have been a little friendlier, but maybe they're going for the whole "kiss my grits" thing. Not really sure why there's such a long line- it wasn't really anything special. I'd give it a solid "C".

Fairly good food, but the owners really need to put a little money into the place. It was hot, dirty, & in some places, unsafe to walk. The restrooms were down horrible stairs.

Stood in line for about 10 minutes - but expected that. One inside, I wanted to leave because it was dirty. Order breakfast from the counter. They gave our meals to the people next to us. The food was subpar - eggs and meats and wife had omelette. My side of french toast was barely cooked.The people around us were... More

A sign outside the place says "We serve the best breakfast in Pittsburgh" and we definitely agree. Try to go there early or you will find yourself queuing outside (forget about going there on Saturday 10am). They serve basically everything and it really feels as there were your mum in the back cooking for you. The egg Benedict's are the... More

Went here based on all the good reviews. The food itself was just average. A decent breakfast but nothing spectacular by any means. The reason for my bad review is the lineup, poor service, lack of payment options and temperature inside the restaurant. The waitstaff were sweating. The interior temperature was far too high. Perhaps my food was salted by... More

We were walking to another restaurant for breakfast on Saturday morning when we happened upon this place and the large line out front. It’s located in the heart of the Strip District, so there was a ton going on the day we ate here. The food is very good and the portions are huge. I’d recommend going early to avoid... More

We had breakfast here at the recommendation of our Concierge. Such a great, local place, full of friendly people and great food.

Couldn't decide between DeLucas or Pamela's for breakfast on our final day in Pittsburgh. Decided on DeLucas. Wrong decision. Service was average at best. Guy at register (owner or manager) was too busy reading the paper to really care. We could not get coffee refilled, and when I asked this guy, he seemed bothered. When meal came, the eggs that...
