I live in Pittsburgh, so when someone visits, this is on the must do list. The history of Pittsburgh is truly incorporated into a sandwich. The restaurant is charming and holds so much history. And I must confess, I sometimes go even when I don't have visiting guests.

Whatever you do in Pittsburgh, include primanti's in your visit. One word: AMAZING. It's indescribable, and you'll be happy you did.

I love tradition but sandwiches with little meat, dull slaw and fries stuck between flavorless white bread served on parchment paper is not something to crave in an area with way better options. If there was no history and this placed opened today it would not last.

Don't come here for a salad...they're good but you can get a salad anywhere. Come here for the sandwiches, loaded with cole slaw and fries. Good, quick lunch service - more than I could eat so the server happily wrapped the remainder to go.

Hubby and I visited on our trip to Pittsburgh. I got the famous Primanti Bro sandwich and he got sub. It was delicious. The perfect amount of food to fill you up. I was also happy to see they served beer to go with lunch. We had so many recommendations to stop in and I agree, it is a must... More

I wouldn't have gone in here if it wasn't pointed out to me by someone I met here. I like these kinds of places, where there's 12 things on the menu and its made right in front of you. I ordered the pastrami and cheese. Could not have been happier. A great warm-me-up on a cold day. The staff was... More

Went with family after touring Heinz Museum. Had the corned beef, piled high, delicious. Others had various sandwiches too numerous to mention. This is the original location, a must visit if you are in the Burg.

My son insisted we visit because it was highly recommended by friends who live in the area. It was certainly worth eating there one time! It is not the kind of place I ever eat, and it was a bit adventurous for us. All the other patrons were local. We were the only customers who did not wear some sort... More
