Can't go to Pittsburgh without experiencing a Primanti Brothers sandwich. They're not for the faint of heart or the diet conscious, but they're fun and unique..

This place is a legend and everyone who goes to Pitt says you have to eat there. All sandwiches and I mean all are topped with french fries and cole slaw. We had the cheesesteaks and the jumbo fish. Both were surprisely good (although I dont know if I'd ever eat another one). IT says the cheese steak is the second best seller on the menu and when we asked what was the first the waiter said - Beer. That explains it all.

We were visiting our daughter on campus and my husband wanted to try the "world famous" sandwiches.
The restaurant was crowed when we got there. That's a sign--in my opinion--that the food is good. The counterperson was very nice and explained the menu. My husband was hesitant at first to have cole slaw and fries on a sandwich, but ordered it anyway. The order did not take long at all. Our drinks were constantly re-filled.
Would recommend!

The staff was the best part of this experience. Food was cheap and just OK. Waitresses was delightful...... sandwiches at Fatheads were far superior.
