I head about this place and heard about this place, and on my last trip to the 'Burgh I finally went! so. worth. it. French fries and coleslaw ON the burger. Delicious! it's a Pittsburgh original. It's different than other restaurants, because they serve your food in ballpark paper cups and whatnot. Neat! We went to the one on The... More

We are from near NOLA so we love food. We tried this restaurant out in Market Square cause it was recommended to us. We didn't get the big deal with soggy fries on the sandwich. Our kids ordered chicken tenders and the waiter admitted to us they were frozen. Also, not a good place for large party. We had 9... More

I guess I was expecting something spectacular. The bread is very thick white bread. My pastrami was some kind of cured beef round--certainly not real pastrami. The slaw is very vinegary. Of course, I knew about the ingredients. They just surprised me.

Whether you like the sandwiches or not, the french fries/slaw topping on all the sandwiches is a Pittsburgh original. The restaurant was clean, casual, and comfortable. The server was great and he worked hard to serve everyone. The kids enjoyed the uniqueness and considerable portion size of the sandwiches. All four in my party said the sandwich was decent and...

Atmosphere was fun, staff was friendly and quick, but the sandwich was just ok. Nothing special...potatoes tasted dirty to me. Had to go, went, over it!

We go to Primanti's at least once a month. We have never been disappointed. Always have fast, friendly service. Big variety of sandwiches which come with Fries and Cole Slaw ON them. They also have delicious pizza! Everything is very reasonably priced. They also have tvs all around so we never miss a sporting event!

I went to Pittsburgh with our two sons to see a PIRATES game...heard about Primanti Brothers, so we tried it out. Service was fairly good...had to ask for beverage refills. The sandwiches are huge, so beware! I'm not a fan of cabbage, so including it in the sandwich with fries seemed strange, but I guess that's the attraction. Overall tasty... More
