Here we go with my coworker again! On the morning of our exit out of Pittsburgh (Wednesday 09/24/14), we decided to stop at De Luca's for breakfast. You have to understand the back story. We were in town for a work conference which my coworker previously attended the year before. She also attended college in Pittsburg, PA in the late... More

In Pittsburgh you either eat breakfast at De Luca's or Pamela's. There is no decision for you. De Luca's has amazing diner food, giant portions at a good price. From the Mother or All Burritos to the various types of pancakes, De Luca's will make you never look at an IHOP again. It can be busy but the line outside... More

You'll find De Luca's right in the middle of the strip and it's the place to go for a great breakfast. I don't know if it's the food, or the location, or atmosphere, but you feel it is a special place. Not at all fancy, but what you would expect in a bustling urban setting. A lot of shops, and...

We travel from NC to Pittsburgh ever year to watch the Steelers play and after my 8 hour drive all night we arrive in Pittsburgh at about 7 o'clock in the morning. It has become our tradition to make De Luca's our first stop before we shop on the Strip District. The food is always good and the service is... More

Fantastic diner/dive atmosphere, and the place was absolutely packed. Even so, the staff and kitchen was keeping up with everything. Can recommend the blueberry french toast and waffles, both were excellent. The California eggs benedict was also very good. Homefries were perfect - just the right mix of crunchy ones. Table next to us were raving about Huevos Rancheros. Just... More

The waffles! The food is delicious and they have anything and everything for Breakfast... Weather we are 2 or 10 there is always room, though on a Saturday morning there is a line...but worth it.

We met up with some friends here on a Saturday afternoon. Luckily, we didn't have to wait for a table. I had the eggs benedict with bacon and home fries (so delicious and a large portion size) and my husband had the chicken strips basket (he said it was some of the best fried tenders he has ever had). Service... More

We were planning one meal on the Strip and De Luca's didn't disappoint! It lived up to its TripAdvisor billing: delicious and affordable. We went for a Monday morning brunch so the wait time wasn't long. Atmosphere was great; my 18-year old daughter thought that she was in an old movie. In fact, some of the seats had plaques where...

We went for a late breakfast, and sat at the counter. From there, we could watch the short-order cooks and busy yet skilled waitresses. YUM! Loved our meals. Take note this is a CASH ONLY place, and no reservations (as you would imagine).
