I've been to a number of these restaurants, and this one might have been my favorite. I didn't notice a ton of tables, but I'd imagine I just didn't see them. My buddy and I ate at the bar. The service was very fast, very friendly, and our bar tender was perfectly attentive. She also knew exactly how we wanted... More

The restaurant is too small ..too crowded ..and lacks decent rest rooms and tables . Most who visit here will be disgusted at what is considered at Pittsburgh thing. Go to any other parmanti bros in the city. The place is magnet for those coming to/from football or baseball games or any major city event who have or had been... More

We stopped in Pittsburgh for the day and friends recommended going to Primanti Brothers to experience it. It did not disappoint! The sandwiches were large and very tasty- we were all hungry. We had a great service and the proprietors were very kind and very gracious as he explained how it worked and all the different sandwiches to us. If... More

Good tunes, clean tables, nice vibe greeted us for lunch. Huge sandwiches, all covered with fries and slaw were very good. Beer reasonably priced and cold. I would eat here again.

My husband and I make it a point to visit Primanti's when we go to Pittsburgh. They are very consistent. This is our first visit to the Carson Street location. We really liked the ambiance and the old feel of the place. The staff was nice and the service was fast. The sandwiches were exactly what we expected. We both... More

We had a group of five go here for lunch and drinks on a Sunday afternoon. These sandwiches are nothing special. I ordered the Angus steak sandwich and it was dry. All of the locals pour hot sauce all over theirs, probably to add some flavor. The bartenders are ok but not overly friendly until it gets close to check... More

Everyone says, "you have to have a Pramanti Brothers sandwich". Been there, done that, now time to move on. I understand it is a fun sandwich with fries and coleslaw included. But it still lacked that thing you like in sandwiches... flavor. It wasn't extremely tasteful and the staff wasn't extremely helpful or friendly. The place was located in a... More

My husband has been dying to try one of these sandwiches since he saw them featured on TV. Lucky for him, we were traveling through Pittsburgh on our way home from vacation. We enjoyed our sandwiches, especially my husband. But a one time experience was good enough, as it wouldn't be the healthiest habit to develop. With slaw and fries... More

The service we received was no where near what I had hoped for. The further along our meal went, the nicer they became. Nothing was explained to us. Even the questions we asked weren't answered in a way that made us understand what we were in for. The food was nothing like we expected or what their "menu" made it... More
