“Best sandwich - hands down!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Seriously, I love these sandwiches. Its genius to put the coleslaw and french fries on your favorite meats and cheeses. I love the capicola with egg and cheese. Also, their wings are crisp and small (not fatty) which is how I like them. And, if you are really hungry, go for the loaded fries - cheese, chili, bacon, sour cream. Great place to watch a game or for cheap good meal!

“Almost as good as pittsburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

Cheap food and a great deal of it. Family pizza night were a hit. I just loved the loaded hot capi. Most of the time the service was great.But it didn't taste as good as the one in Pittsburgh

“It's THE Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

The food at Primanti Bros will not let you down. We always order their famous sandwiches (kielbasa with egg and ham with egg) with a couple of Iron City beers when we go to any of the Primanti's in Pittsburgh. So we were SO excited to eat at Primanti Bros while we were in Florida. Needless to say, we ate there Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, we ordered the usual (kielbasa with egg sandwich) even though the kielbasa is an off menu item. It was heaven! We noticed a lot of people where eating pizza but we stuck to their sandwiches & IC beers & ordered a sandwich to go. On Sunday, we didn't have enough and went back. We ordered ham with egg sandwiches & HAD to try their pizza. Primanti Bros took pizza to another level!!! Their slices were HUGE and very tasty. The crust was crisp and toasty.

You MUST go and eat Primanti Bros! The history of their famous sandwiches and incredible pizza will amaze you!!!

“Average - Not impressed. ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Was expecting something great. Had seen the restaurant featured on a food show on TV in the past and just had to try it. Big sandwiches made with French fries and coleslaw, just had to try.

Finally got there last night and although pricing is good, service is good and big portions... Just not impressed. Disappointingly fell short of my expectations.

The Pitts-Burger is good, but the burger is unimpressively thin and not memorable. More bread than anything else.

Also had the pastrami and cheese. Again not impressed, simply average. Even the kids thought the chicken fingers were so-so.

BUT - can't say it is not worth a try. The Pittsburgh style sandwich of Italian Bread, French Fries, Meat, Cheese and Coleslaw does work well.

“Go with a friend...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

So you can share the love! A shared sandwich (turkey & cheese with thin sliced fries on it), & a slice of fabulous pizza each. Just YUM! It's small- & busy- but fast/ don't go if you want to linger. The bathroom is tiny on not the cleanest- but works. Not ideal with babies due to noise & small quarters/ there's nowhere for a high chair. Other than that you cannot go wrong for lunch!
