Ok, so if you've never been to Pittsburgh, you've probably still heard of Primanti's. The orignial site, located in the historic Strip District (don't let the name scare you - it's not what you think - no red lights) is the mecca for anyone interested in the "real" Pittsburgh experience. Step inside the tavern-like space and you're transported back to... More

Food was meh--I got the sirloin and cheese sandwich and my husband got the turkey sandwich. Not a lot of meat--mostly fries and cole slaw. Service was ok; parts of our dinner came out at different times, we ate our cheese fries last because they were not delivered until we had eaten most of our sandwiches. Wouldn't recommend, will not... More

And so was our Moscow mule drinks!!... More

A sandwich with French fries on it, what else do you need to know?! The pastrami, corned beef, and capocolla are the best. Don't forget to add a fried egg!

After watching Guy Fieri do an episode on his Diners, Drive-in & Dives show here; I wanted to venture out & see what it was truly about. On our mini Presidents Day vacation, I was taken to the Strip District to have "My Captain" sandwich. Really enjoyed it-wanting more.

When we arrived there were open tables. We were a group of 5 so they made us split up. The restaurant then filled up. Our server got overwhelmed quickly with many tables and took a long time to bring our food. She missed a lot of our order and only brought it after we were able to flag her down... More

The portions are large enough to satisfy anyone's hunger needs. The fries remind me of fresh cut like mom made.
