My husband and I were in Pittsburgh over the weekend checking out graduate schools. We stopped in a convenient store on our walk back from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. After two days of exquisite and expensive meals, Primanti

This is a must stop restaurant for anyone visiting the Steel City! Every time I come home to visit my family, we make sure we make a stop and have a Pittsburgh original. Definitely love the steak and cheese, then get a kosher pickle on the side.

Primanti's fries and slaw on a sandwich embodies the true nature of Pittsburgh's low class population. It is a delicious low class treat that anyone would love!

I absolutely love Primanti brothers becaue of their unique style of serving food and also their quick service. This Pittsburgh "made" restaurant has it's own tradition of serving coleslaw and fries on their sandwiches. Not only can you get their famous steak sandwich, but you can also choose from a variety of other unique combinations. Most of the time this restaurant is packed with a line outside of the door. The great thing about the staff is that they can whip you out a sandwich within 5 minutes of your visit...despite the long lines. The prices of their items are pretty reasonable considering the enormity of the sandwiches.

Primanti Brothers is a must try for visitors and a must have for locals. They have a variety of sandwiches served on two thick slices of Italian bread. They heat the meat and cheese on a grill and then add a vinegar based coleslaw and french fries to the sandwich. They are famous for their cheese steak sandwich, but I prefer the roast beef. If you want to add a few more calories, you can add a fried egg to your sandwich. They also serve side orders of fries and pickles. If you haven't tried it, I would recommend it.

PROS: More locations--even at Heinz Field
CONS:

Primanti Brothers started out in the 1930's as a late-night food trough and watering hole for produce dock workers; today it's a famous Pittsburgh institution and foodie magnet. The owners have chained the concept, but the original shop,…
