Main Menu

Appetizers

    Wings and Tenders

    Blue cheese, ranch, celery? Just ask. The first one’s on us.

      Hot from the Pot

        Fries and Tots

          Salads

            Sandwiches

            Almost Famous Since 1933. Top quality grilled meats, melted Provolone cheese, fresh-cut French fries, house-made sweet and tangy coleslaw and ripe tomatoes - piled high on fresh Italian bread.

              Tall Boys

              Stuffed & Stacked. Just like our Almost Famous sandwich, these Tall Boys are served with French fries and coleslaw - but stacked with even more meat.

                    People say they like this crap to be "in."

                    Try to define what kind of meat actually goes into their

                    "cheese steak." If you go late at night when it's busy with all the obnoxious drunks, they charge you what they want to.

                    No one else understands a Pittsburgh sandwich like primanti's. Try the fried pickle chips and you won't be sorry! great deals for the pens games and some good specials

                    I went to Primanti Brothers after the Pittsburgh/Baltimore AFC championship game. I have never had anything this good before. Too bad they don't have food like this is San Diego. Can't wait to go there again. If you are ever in Pittsburgh you HAVE to stop at a Primanti Brothers restaurant and try one of their sandwiches. Even though the restaurant was closing, the staff stayed open long enough for us to eat. They were great!

                    Everyone says if your in Pittsburgh, you have to go to Primanti Brothers. This is one of their restaurants, and they are all fantastic, but this one especially. I went there after a Pirates game once. Giant sandwiches topped with coleslaw, grease fries, tomatoes and onions. It's a heart attack on a plate, but it is one of the best meals you'll have in a long time.

                    Primatis has great food and fast service. They have the best french fries and coleslaw in the city. I don't know how, but their bread is so fresh, no matter what time of day or night. Great for after clubbing.

                    Pros: Fresh food, quick service, must go place

                    Cons: not for romantic dining

                    .

                    First start your sandwich off with almost any thing you can think of. The list goes from Fried Eggs to Cheesesteak. Then you get a heaping generous porportion of Slaw and Fries added on top. Do not order the fries and slaw on the side either. Its not primanti's if the slaw and fries isn't on the sandwich. Its a must eat every time I go back into town. Not only can you get in, have your food, and have it eaten in about 20-30 mins. Your total cost with a drink is about $6.50 on avg. On a personal note get the spicey chicken and add a few dabs of hot sauce from the table to it and a ice cold yeungling and you are good to go.

                    Pros: you seat yourself and don't wait long for your food.

                    Cons: It gets a lil rowdy on the south side on a sat night.

                    The people in Pittsburgh are the luckiest people on earth. This is the best, cheapest and most filling sandwich, I have ever had. It is actually a whole meal. My sister lives here and we went there once and I went every day while there. There is nothing the US or Europe to compare. Lucky, lucky, lucky.

                    OK, Primanti's is an institution in PGH and the sandwiches are good. But this is a FRIES category and Primanti's are soggy and undercooked. It is not where you go for Fries, the "O" is a thousand times better

                    If you visit or live in the Pittsburgh area, and don't visit Primanti Bros., you are missing a classic 'Burgh foodfest! You WILL leave full! The city and surrounding area is overflowing with various types of food from many different cultures, but the best sandwiches are @ Primanti's. I know I will be there every time I return 'home'! They have opened another shop in Harmerville (Exit 48 {old #5} PA Turnpike). Don't pass it by.

                    I was in Pittsburgh for work and I'd have to say that one of the highlights was the cheese steak @ Primanti Bros. It was piled high with great fries and an even better cole slaw-type mix. Yummy! but messy!! It was served on waxed paper and I probably went through 10 napkins. As far as ambience goes, it felt like a neighborhood bar. I went for lunch on Saturday and felt comfortable enough eating alone. Several 40-something guys at the bar. Several 20-something groups sitting at the tables.

                    I still remember a friend taking me to this dive when I was visiting Pittsburgh. When I tell people that any sandwich from fried egg to burgers are topped with your fries AND cole slaw, they look at me like I'm nuts. Hey, it all goes to the same place anyway! Great institution. Lots of color and character.
