De Luca's is a great place to go for breakfast, just make sure you go with an empty stomach as the servings are huge!!! Located in the Strip, it's old school, fast and noisy with a great buzzing atmosphere! Quick service and the servers were nice. Cash only.

This is an "old school" diner with great breakfast selections. Warning, the portions are very large, so be hungry! The omelet so are amazing but the highlight might be the many types of pancakes and crepes. Might need to wait to get in, but it is worth it! Bring cash, they do not take credit cards!

We went to breakfast on Sunday morning before attending a Steelers game. Try to get there early but either way expect to wait. It is normal for you to wait outside in line but that is the charm of this place it's very traditional and most places in Pittsburgh that's how it goes. The food was delicious. With many choices....

Great experience. Not too pricy given the fact that the amount of food you get is in such a large quantity. Very very popular on weekends with the line always out the door. Get there early. I say before 8:30 if want to avoid a line entirely guaranteed if going on a weekend. The famous burrito is my favorite with... More

Saw it on the Travel Channel's Man vs. Food so it was on my must do list. I wasn't disappointed. The portions are enormous. I had the MOAB...a huge "sub" loaded with choizo, hot peppers, onions, avocado, cheddar, refried beans, and a partridge in a pear tree. My wife's Grilled Cheese, Bacon and Tomato was also great. There is no... More

DeLuca's is a Pittsburgh treasure. I take everyone who comes to visit to DeLuca's. Old fashioned good food. Fun for kids and grown-ups. Great Eggs Benedict, french toast, breakfast burritos and sticky buns. Big menu and generous portions.

Excellent chicken and waffles with the chicken being very tasty. Good service despite being very busy on our Labor Day visit.

It was a busy Sunday when we arranged to meet friends at DeLuca's for brunch/lunch. I guess if you are a local, you know the rules, but there was no signage, the others in line didn't know what to do. So we waited 30 minutes, got to the front of the line, and were asked if we wanted counter seating,... More

Excellent food, excellent service. It is a must-go. On Saturdays, it is very crowded, as the is a street market in the neighborhood.
