“Just A Bit Different...In A Good Sort Of Way”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

We had read reviews about great sandwiches at Primanti Brothers. So we headed out of our hotel to find them. As we approached the building it looked like a greasy spoon sort of place. The door was open and we peeked inside. The tables were full and the cooks and wait staff were bustling about. We were very hungry. Hesitantly, we stepped inside to find a place to sit. There were only two stools at the counter and we grabbed them. While we decided what we should order, we watched them cook the various menu items,. I played it safe with a cheeseburger and cheesy fries, while my friend ordered the Roast Beef & Cheese that came with tomato, coleslaw and fries all ON her sandwich. Mine was very good and my friend enjoyed hers a lot too. The cooks and wait staff were a show to watch and listen to, as we ate. They all got along wonderfully. The prices are reasonable. We were really glad we chose to eat here! Hope we get the chance to go back!

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

This is a chain but doesnt feel like it. It specializes in their sandwiches like the original in Pittsburgh but also had great pizza. Its not much of a restaurant to look at but its across the street from the beach and was very handy for us since our resort was just up a block. great food.

“Eh a Surprise!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We did a late night here.
Well, it could do with a makeover.
Our waitress was friendly and different, but an enjoyable personality.
The pizza is the really real thing. It was scrumptious!
The salad is more than sufficient.
We saw the lasagne which looked as if Momma had just made it!
Do the joint up and we will queue.

“Best pizza I've ever had”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic pizza, had a few beers, a pickle and an amazing pizza. Friendly staff and one of the few places in the area that seem to welcome children.

“Best Pizza on the Beach!”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We stopped here twice for pizza during our recent visit to Fort Lauderdale. Once late at night and once for a late afternoon snack. The pizza is fresh and absolutely amazing! The staff is very friendly and the service was fast. This is a great place to stop for a slice and a beer after a day at the beach. Enjoy!
