My husband and I would frequent this location almost every Tuesday. We always had great service and good time (unless there's a Pittsburgh game on. They turn it up nice and loud so no one can miss a beat). These last couple times, this was not the case. Our waitress last time was very rude. We were there for "Family... More

I've been to many Primanti Brothers in Pittsburgh and tonight was THE WORST service ever. The restaurant wasn't even at 50% capacity. We ordered fried pickles for starters which took nearly a half hour to get. It then took another 15-20 minutes to get our sandwiches. Our waitress, Kristin, had a pissy attitude with us and rarely came to the... More

Famous Pittsburgh sandwich with French fries and cole slaw on the sandwich. Fries are awesome! Definitely get the fried zucchini appetizer too!

Always a good place to eat or grab food on the go. Easy to get to. Sometimes very busy, not long waiting.

Ordered the egg and cheese sandwich and my guest ordered the Rubén sandwich for lunch with great anticipation. When it came out we both grabbed a fry and had the same look on our face....they were cold. Oh well, the rest of the sandwich would be good or so we thought. The bread was not very fresh and the sandwiches... More

We used to go here a lot - especially for Happy Hour. Lately the kitchen has been slow, food has been greasy & servers have been unapologetic & off their game. My husband waited 15 min for a beer, then it was the wrong kind. So, he waited another 20 min for it to be replaced. Then they served us... More

Busy family oriented restaurant. Good sandwich. Lots of kid noises, the food was really good and the service was fine. Waitress did a lot of work fast.

We ate at the restaurant downtown earlier in the day and my adult sons loved the beef. Enough that we stopped at this location on the way home from the game and got another order, this time to-go. They raved about the bread in particular, but the flavor of the beef was excellent.

Certainly an interesting place. Great prices and good food. The sandwich is what they are known for and includes coleslaw, tomatoes, French fries and your choice of meat! Make sure to leave room as it is a large sandwich! Certainly recommend stopping at one of their locations.

We decided to stay make an overnight pit stop only so we can have a sandwich at the Primanti Brothers. We drove all the way from WI to eat the legendary sandwich and we were not disappointed. I had the pollock sandwich and my husband had the pastrami sandwich. Both were excellent. The coleslaw and french fries were perfect. All... More
