Pittsburgh's most famous sandwich and shop!!
Primanti Bros is a place that almost any foodie has heard of. Though I know many who say there are better places elsewhere, you can't go to Pittsburgh and not have a sandwich from Primantis. This location is the original location in the Strip District and is open 24 hours of the day! Service is good but a bit slow for us. The menu is pasted on the wall and includes all your deli favorites....topped with coleslaw, fries, and tomatoes!
I wanted to try all the sandwiches but had to only choose one. I've heard the Cap and Cheese is the way to go, but I opted with the classic Bacon and Egg. I skipped breakfast so why not. The sandwich was...damn. It was good. It's simple and the idea is easy to imitate, but the taste couldn't possibly be replicated. The combination of coleslaw, fries, bacon, and egg is just the most incredible thing ever. The coleslaw was tangy and sweet while the fries stayed crisp despite how wet the slaw was. The fries on their own weren't the best but mended so well with the sandwich. The bacon was overly plentiful! There was bacon coming out of every crevice of the sandwich. The egg was good but I was hoping it was runny which I'm sure you could ask for.
It took all my willpower not to order another one of these sandwiches because one is not enough. It's not enough ladies and gentlemen. Even though you can barely stuff it into your face hole, the sandwich is necessary.
I wish this place expanded outside of Pittsburgh (and Florida) because this place needs to be available everywhere. Love the history, the fame, and the sandwich. Definitely a must visit if you're ever in Pittsburgh.
