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.

Went here on our way to Florida. Enjoyed the sandwich completely. My wife liked the sandwich but was not to happy with the coleslaw. Did not know that when they said it came with fries and slaw that this meant in the sandwich, but I loved it this way. Saw that some were getting the fries and slaw on the... More

Very good food and the portions were quite larger than I expected (a good thing). I had a gyro with lamb and it was superb! The atmosphere is great and the staff were nice and friendly. Definitely suggest it!

This is the place to go for a crazy sandwich, all of them are served with nice thick bread toped with cole slaw and a pile of french fries on top of that, so it's a all in one sandwich. Staff is very nice and make sure that you are taken care of.

If you are looking for the food that locals eat go to Primanti Brothers and have a sandwich with fries, coleslaw, and egg! WOW! I could not eat it all! Great place to eat good food!

I know, I know...I will make many Pittsburghers upset for this review but I don't think Pittsburgh's beloved sandwich joint is all that great. It's good drunk food; that's about it. When I think of Primanti's, I think: Flavorless. Starting with that white bread...it has absolutely no taste whatsoever. It is fresh however. I've had a few sandwiches here: Chicken... More
