I enjoyed the experience that I had at Primanti Brothers. I have their famous steak burger, that I must admit was not what I was expecting. It was still pretty good. My wife had the bologna sandwich which was also pretty good. I would say that this is more of a destination for the experience of it, as there is... More

Back in September, 2 buddy's and I did a baseball road trip. It has always been our dream to see a game in every ballpark in the country. On this trip we went to Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh. Primanti Bros. is just a must go to place when visiting. Iconic place, good food, real midwest friendliness! There is a woman... More

ate lunch here. But must get here early like 11am. Every sandwich has French fries on it. A lady over 90 years old sells her homemade dessert for a $1. Got to eat here

Was a local bar/restaurant with sandwiches with fries n slaw on your sandwich. I got corn beef and the fries on the sandwich were hard and raw. Then they tell you they don't accept debit or credit cards. Was a terrible lunch. Maybe Pitt locals think it's great but I'm from New Jersey and New York and New Jersey have... More

Arriving in Pittsburgh on a recent Saturday in the late afternoon, I asked to go to Primanti's as I had been raving about it since the last time I was there. Fun and a little noisy atmophere, as you would expect at Pittsburgh Institution! I love the crazy sandwiches filled with french fries and the Heinz ketchup! Even the bologna... More

Not sure what all the fuss is about this restaurant...super crowded...seats are hard to get. But the mushy French fries on the sandwich were terrible...just not my kind of food...not very expensive but the burger had no flavor at all just mushy potatoes!!!

We knew Primanti Bros was famous for their sandwiches including the fries and coleslaw on the sandwich. The sandwich was good and the bread was fresh, but the fries were kinda tasteless and soggy. Service was very good.

Everyone told me I had to go to Primanti Brothers and get one of their famous sandwiches. In fact, I couldn't even eat anywhere but the original one located in the Strip. So I went and ordered a sandwich and fries (I didn't know fries came on the sandwich). Anyhow, the sandwich was served on boring white bread, was messy... More
