  • Known for the sandwiches served with fries and many other fixings! As seen on Travel Channels Man v. Food Nation.
  • I applaud your attempt to apply any worldly experience you may have acquired throughout your life to make sense of the food coma you are about to enter.
  • In the 1930s, working-class men didnt have time to eat their sides, so Primanti Brothers put the coleslaw & fries in their sandwiches - and a legend was born! Seen on Food Paradise.
  • CAPICOLA & CHEESE what more do I say!
  • You haven't experienced Pittsburgh until you have tried a Primanti Brothers sandwich.
  • Bread, Meat, Cheese, Fries, Cole Slaw, Tomato, BreadIs there really anything more that needs to be said?
  • Named the manliest restaurant in America!
  • Do not leave Pittsburgh without eating here, the Black Angus Seroin Strip is possibly the best sandwich I've ever had. Also try the Smallman Street Fries, they are bangin.
  • Bring Cash
  • Cheese fries ... yes.
  • Pastrami is the only answer here! Nom Nom Nom!
  • The go-to place for awesome sandwiches. The coleslaw and french fries are added to the sandwich, not on the side. Cool!
  • Corned Beef, do it.
  • Cash Only = you're pathetic
  • We swear by the cheesesteak classic at this famous sandwich shop. - CBS Pittsburgh
  • Cash only. Open 24 hours.
  • If you're a virgin, get the pastrami or the kielbasa. If this is your second time, add an egg. And whatever you do, be sure to wash it all down with an Iron City beer.
  • Get the egg!
  • Love the cole slaw, fries, and beef sandwiches!
  • Great piece of Pittsburgh folklore. Went to original location as well as PNC park. The sandwich at the ballpark was just as good as the restaurant...pleasant surprise.
