“Pittsburgh's Best”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Love their sandwiches. You may have to wait at lunch/dinner time but it is well worth it. Sandwiches are amazing, make sure you get the Pastrami. Great Pittsburgh tradition, bring all of my friends here and they are never disappointed.

“A staple of Pittsburgh”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Pittsburgh is known for Primantis Brothers sandwiches. It is a unique sandwich that includes cole slaw and french fries. I think if you are visiting Pittsburgh you must go to Primantis and get a sandwich. The pizza and beer specials are great during Penguins games too.

“Food to get you through the day!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Hearty sandwiches with everything you need to sustain life for the day! Ambiance and Pittsburgh sports figures grace the walls of the 'original' Primanti's in the Strip District.

“Only AVERAGE DESPITE REPUTATION!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I only go when we have guests in town because it is to "The Burgh", what Geno's and Pat's are to Philly. It is packed, you pay only by cash, the food is fair but if you never had a sandwich with french fries and cole slaw (along with the meat or fish that you order) in it, YOU HAVE NEVER COMPLETED a trip to "The Burgh". Expect a fancy place is the is NOT the spot for you...but a fun time and decent food will be had by all. Fish sandwich is my favorite!

“Always dependable”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I went in thinking there was no way I would ever like the sandwiches the way they are prepared Pittsburgh style. You have to give this sandwich a try for yourself though. Tasting is believing. Try the one in Shadyside for the best dining experience.
