  Primati Bros. - Pittsburgh, PA
by MissAntarctica2002

We went to the Primanti Bros. in the Strip based on the recommendations of other VTers. Despite being initially daunted by how busy the place is and the long line, we persevered. It was worth the wait. For lunch hubby and I shared an order of cheese fries and a cheesesteak sandwich, with a dill pickle of course. The server was a bit gruff, but it was one of those cases where it is part of the charm and atmosphere of the place. Rather than plates, sandwiches are served on a piece of waxed paper. For me, the most interesting aspect of our lunch was having coleslaw right in the sandwich. That was a first for me, and surprisingly tasty. Because it is warmed up, it's almost like sauerkraut.
