Don't listen to any of the bad reviews, this place is a classic. I went to Pitt and lived in the area for years and frequented the "O" often. You don't go there for their clean bathrooms and friendly staff cause you won't find either.

I am a real fan of The "O." However, if you wish to be there when they open (supposedly at 10:00 AM), expect to be disappointed. A friend and I waited outside their door until 10:45 and they were still closed.\r

I'm not really used to being in the city despite living only about 2 hours away. I was talked into going to "The O" by my dad and his girlfriend so I went in not expecting too much. It had the crappiest people working but somehow it added

Oh come on, if you come here to use the bathrooms you are really missing the point. And stop worrying about the neighborhood - scared? then go there during the day.\r

now live in florida, but grew up in east liberty. We used to go to get an 'original' hot dog on larimer ave. It was a big treat to get the dog with the dark mustard, onions and a birch beer. This was in the late 50's. I am sure of it.

I do not get the hype. Ok food, but a terrible area. make sure you go during the day time if you are not from the area. I can not believe how bad the bathrooms are, and if the employees have to use the same restrooms, I believe there are health concerns. I can not believe how filthy the place is. What good is it to eat a restaurant if you can not keep your food down?

Cons: NO CONS THIS IS YOUR DADDYS ORIGINAL AND IT ROCKS

My first time at "O" I was behind a person that order a small order of fries.(I did not know it at the time) I said give me the large also. It was enough to feed an army. It is a unique setting in Pittsburgh. Located very close to Pitt and if you want to bring the family then be sure it is day light hours. It is The Dirty "O" and it is Original and Dirty to say the least. If you like Hot Dogs and hustle and bustle of city life then this is the place for you. Hot Dogs are the best and only Primanti Brothers is more Pittsburgh then The Dirty "O". You have to experience it for yourself!

If you're craving greasy fries, hot dogs and pizza, this is the place to come. It's an institution, fer crissakes!

The size "small" fries are a served in a small paper boat, but they overflow it to nearly fill the entire tray. Get the cheese sauce, too, and be bad--really bad.

this place is terrible. it's famous and beloved by some people for being so terrible, a place that works great when you're drunk and it's 1:00 in the morning since then you'll have no expectations.

simply put, the food is terrible. it's either greasy or flat out generic. the clientelle includes plenty of drunk people one of whom assailed us when we went there. horrible place, won't ever go there again.

They are famous for hotdogs but they are way overpriced. However the pizza and fries are cheap. Also the bathrooms are down in the scary basement which is wallpapered with GA NG tagging. Stay safe and peee out on the street.

The Original is one of the best hot dog shops ever, every time i go to Pittsburgh this is one place i have to stop. There is just something about those dogs that keep you coming back for more.

I have yet to figure out how they get the cheese on the hot dogs like they do but it is so good. The real way to get them is with chili, cheese, and onions. The fries are unbelievable. If you are from out town, as a local I recommend that you go there and get large fries. With the fries I like to get cheese and gravy, trust me its worth the extra dollar or two. On my scale this place rivals The Primanti Brothers on the "Pittsburgh must go to" list.

I went to college at Pitt in the 80's. We went to the "O" about every day (especially after going to CJ's or the Sanctuary). They had the best fries and subs around. When I visit the Burgh, I even take my family from North Carolina there. Visiting the "O" ,Primanti's, and Kennywood are the three things that the kids request during the vacation. I guess it is a tradition for those of us who went to Pitt and other surrounding schools. It is a unique place to try. Now don't expect a fancy restaurant--it is the Dirty O, but you will get the biggest order of fries you have ever seen. Have fun and enjoy the atmosphere and the experience!

Pros: big order of fries

Not sure why people rave about the hotdogs although I get that's the name... I've always gone for the fries...first of all they are huge!! Second they fry them twice! I prefer to alternate dipping between cheese and ketchup every other fry... yum! Also you go there for the atmosphere at 2 a.m. At least you do if you are a college student in Oakland or you've been drinking in the Strip (Pittsburgh). If you want a cheap (and I mean cheap in every sense of the word) pizza then go to the O too... $10 will get you enough food to feed a small army!

I came here because my friend said it's good for hot dogs but i found nothing special about it. I ordered a super size hotdog with bacon, cheese, pickle, etc. and feel a little disappointed. it can't be compared to NY or Chicago hot dog.

EVERYTHING ON THE "O" MENU IS JUST GREAT. GREAT FOOD AT GREAT PRICES. JUST MAKE SURE YOU USE A BATHROOM BEFORE YOU LEAVE HOME, OR YOU JUST MAY LOSE YOUR APPETITE!!! THEY OF COURSE HAVE THE BEST FRIES EVER KNOWN TO MAN SERVED IN AMAZING PORTIONS BUT ALSO MAKE GRATE SUBS THEY ARE ALMOST AS BIG AS THEY FRY SERVINGS. UNLESS YOU ARE A SUMO WRESTLER DONT ORDER A WHOLE SUB, I THINK THEY ARE ABOUT 18 INCHES AND STUFFED FULL. THE STEAK IS JUST GREAT!!! BUT IF YOU ARE IN THE BURG MAKE SURE YOU GO TO THE DIRTY O!!!!!!!!!!

Bring your appettite if you are going to order fries. We ordered the medium and it was huge. The hot dog was not the best I have ever had (that is Walter's Hot Dog in Mamaroneck, NY) but it was good. I had it with Chili and cheese. The place is definitely a dive, but I was glad I made the visit on my recent trip to Pittsburgh! I could definitely see how great a place this must be for the students of Pitt! Definitely check this place out if you like Hot Dogs. I am not sure about the other food that they offered, as we only had the Hot Dogs and a GIANT medium order of Fries.

Rated it to other places to eat, but this place is at the top, and don't care about the Family-Friendly and Ambience stuff. Burgers, fries, dogs, shakes and even pizza are all good. Ok, the pizza is sketchy, but good while warm. Never ate anything else there. Go with friends, help will be needed in carrying the food. Fries are on one tray and size does not matter, as the small fry boat will just be buried under the mountain of fries. All the other food will go on the other tray. If late night, definitely go with friends, the place is a little crazy at nights. Eat on top of the "O" as more seating is available.

. I will admit the "O" is a must try but a def. late night snack. I've eaten there about twice sober and that was enough for me. During my senior year at PITT my roommates and I lived directly above the "O" Bar......which provided for much entertainment however really kills your desire to frequent their 'restaurant'.

I read all the reviews here, so I thought I'd give it a try...Hot dogs are okay, not sure why everyone loves them? The bun is good though - fresh and a bit chewy. Also ordered a small fries, which tasted alright, and certainly there were plenty! Service: above average, but nothing spectacular. Did I order the wrong stuff, or the "O" a bit overated? Overall, not a bad place to drop in for a snack, but I just don't get why everyone likes this place.

The Dirty O fries are by far the best in the Burgh! Someone asked me how fires @ a restaurant I went to were, and I said "Not as good as the Dirty O!" I live in Connecticut, and love the Dirty O fries. And they're just HUGE! I ordered a med. and it took 2 people to eat it...in about a half hour! I wear my Dirty O shirt around Connecticut and say "For the best fries, go to Pittsburgh's own Dirty O!" Can't wait to go again. Just so good!

I grew up in Pgh area, and went to Pitt in early '80's. Locals appreciate excellent food! Will always remember Dirty O's as a really fun place to hang out and get LOTS of great food at a killer price. (Cheese fries come to mind...) Went back about 5 years ago when my mom was in Presby, and loved it just as good as I did then back then. One of the few places that college kids get treated as "real customers" . Keep up the great job!!!

listen to the warnings and don't get a medium fries unless you have at least three people. They take forever to eat, and seem to multiply. but, they are very good. The extra beef gravy for them is also a must. The hot dogs are amazing, and are well known around the country, if not the world. The first floor looks like a dump, but the second floor is nice and quiet in the day. Definitely worth it's reputation.

I love the "O". I used to go there all the time when I was in high school and college. You can get a large NY-style pizza for ~ $5. All helpings are HUGE! They have great fries and hot dogs too! Best place to grab some greasy food really late at night when you're a little drunk after a full night of bar hopping.
