  Primanti Brothers
by Rabbityama

Primanti Brothers can now be enjoyed in a few areas of Pittsburgh, but for the original sandwich and the authentic Primanti experience, the Strip District is the only place to go!

Whatever sandwich you choose will be served with cole slaw, tomato, and french fries on top! The sandwiches are reminiscent of Pittsburgh's past, as they were made for truckers to get a lot of food quickly so that they could drive for a long time without having to stop to eat. Although truckers still go there, it is most frequented today by locals and tourists looking for a taste of Pittsburgh! It has been featured on the Travel Channel numerous times, attracting even more visitors!

The restaurant is always busy and booming, but the food is good; definitely worth trying at least once while in Pittsburgh!

Price Comparison: about average
Directions: The original is located in the Strip District. Others are scattered throughout the city, such as Forbes Avenue in Oakland.
Price: less than US$10
Rating: 5
