Had to stop here since I've heard so much about it! Great selection to choose from, I got the corned beef and cheese with an egg and it was awesome! Server wasn't the friendliest but he got the job done. This is the only location that keeps it original...on wax paper and cash only! I will definitely be coming back... More

I've been to Pittsburgh a few times but never made it to Primanti Bros. and felt like I was missing out. This trip our hotel was close to the original location so we went before the Steelers game to try it. Great atmosphere in the building and love the décor and pictures. Service was not great...seemed like our server couldn't... More

In town for the Pitt Homecoming Game on Saturday, October 25. Shortly after the game, we made a trip to the strip to Primanti's aroiund 10:30 p.m. for a steak egg and cheese. It is not as good as it was 25 years ago, but not bad. They have changed the "steak" that is used on the sandwich. My son... More

I took my out of town guests here for one of their delicious sandwiches because when in Pittsburgh…But, the server was so unfriendly. I don't even think she smiled once and she acted as if we were a bother when we asked questions or needed something. It wasn't even busy at the time we were there either. I hated to... More

Great meats are used in sandwiches, which are different, having tried potatoes,slaw and other ingredients. There is a nice selection and they are quite filling. I got the smaller of two sizes and it was plenty of good. Service attentive and prick g is reasonable. Recommend for its different presentation.

Walked into here and the outside looks a lot more expensive than it is. The prices are very good and you get a lot of food for the money. But... The sandwiches are piled high with french fries and cole slaw. the meat is a little on the skimpy side but you won't go away hungry. I had the Kielbasa... More

I don't care for French fries so this was a bad choice right off the bat. Their sandwiches are a cheapo flavorless illusion. Once the fries were removed all that was left was two paper thin slices of beef and an ample amount of Cole slaw on white bread. Pretty pathetic. The Cole slaw was good. There's some older lady...

Primanti Brothers is an absolute institution in Pittsburgh and is known around the world for their sandwiches which include french fries and coleslaw piled onto freshly Italian bread. This particular restaurant is the original located in "The Strip District". I personally want to thank Amy in the executive offices of Primanti for her assistance along with Norman and Toni at...

What can I say about this place? This is the pinnacle of sandwich places but, it is so much more than that. The history of this place is nothing short of staggering, I felt honored to eat in this restaurant. They have opened other locations, but this is the original and in my opinion the best of the best.
