    WOW!. I live about an hour north of Pittsburgh so I frequently go there for various reasons. Pittsburgh is a great city.

    Anyway, I had always hear dthe legend of the Primanti Bros. sandwich but never realized how true it was until I tried one this weeked. All I can say is: WOW!



    It was GREAT. if I kept eating them, I'd probably only live to be 40.:D I had the philly cheese variant and it was just great.

    I highly suggest trying one of these if you live anywhere in a 70 mile vicinity of Pittsburgh if you haven't ever eaten one.


    Also, I believe there's one in Florida.

    Anyway, just thought I'd share this.

    :)

    You are probably the last person in Pennsylvania to try one. :D

    Yep. Just make sure you're up to speed on your Vytorin! Watched game 7 of the Stanley cup finals there last year.

    I haven't had one of those in over 20 years. But I'd kill for one right now.

    Maybe it's because I've never had one, but I've seen them plenty of times on various food network shows, etc., and they just don't look that good.

    Nosferatu - Beaver Falls...Not too far from you.

    Cheeze - They're particularly good at about 2 am on a weekend night after many beers. Initiation for most is in a less than sober state.

    My uncle lives in Ft Lauderdale. That's the only reason I knew there was one down there.

    I actually live in the West Middlesex/New Castle area. Do you live anywhere near the Shippingport nuclear reactor?? I'd never seen it before until about a week ago. First nuclear power plant I've ever seen. Then, being the paranoid freak that I am, started to wonder if I needed to get some Iodine tablets. :D

    I was out there last week for All-State Chorus and hit Primanti Bros. a couple of times - EXCELLENT sandwich, and definitely a must-try for anyone visiting the Pittsburgh area. Don't let the looks fool you.
     
  12. I love Primanti Bros. They make the best sandwiches hands down. I still think the sandwiches from the one in the Strip District are the best tasting.

    They are good for sure, but I make a point of stopping by Southside Steaks everytime I am in the Burgh.

    A lot of those "onions" are cole slaw

    I was born and raised on Primanti Bros and Iron City....lived 5 minutes walking distance away from the southside location. They knew me by name and order there. might explain why I'm overweight.....

    Pittsburgh native here and I don't like the things. They're ok but there is way too much hype I've never really been that wowed by them.

    I love that place. Great sandwiches! Ive tried to emulate but it is just not the same!!!

    Hey OP - if you are in Hermitage you must be familiar with Quaker Steak & Lube - Great wings huh? My wife is from Sharon and I will go there and Billy's Black and Gold (A bar dedicated to Pittsburgh sports) when in town.
