Foursquare Tips

  • Drunk pizza is the best pizza
  • Get a small order of fries.
  • Get a cheesesteak you will not be disappointed
  • Pretty much paying for the name. Hot dogs not all that great or worth the price. Your better off walking the extra few feet and paying an extra couple of bucks for Five Guys next door.
  • Most awesome fries ever... But be sure to go to the bathroom BEFORE you get here. Ewww.
  • French fries all the way! Crunchy ones on the bottom are the best.
  • Get the hot dog, of course.
  • A small really does serve two! Seriously! Also, the food's better if you're drunk or sleep deprived; otherwise go to five guys next door
  • Not as good as when I was a student.
  • Gross bathroom, great French fries, terrible customer service, lots of beer to choose from. Not sure if I'll come back or not.
  • Try the jalapeno hotdog, sooooo good and you don't even need condiments on it and of course the fries!!!
  • Can't really go wrong, except for the chicken tenders.
  • Now accepting credit cards!!
  • They started taking credit cards today.
  • This place has questionable food, but sometimes when you're completely drunk, you crave stuff like this. The employees are, albeit, equally as questionable. Definitely worth the experience.
  • A small fry here is a large anywhere else.
  • The Original Hot Dog Shop, The O, or The Dirty O is a Pittsburgh staple. A great deal for your money, and famous for the size of their fries, (the large encompasses an entire tray)!
  • The fries and cheese are the absolute best anywhere. Generous portions!
  • The best Cheesesteak Hoagie in PGH
  • Pizza and small fries lunch special for $4.50 ish
