    There is no going wrong here. Typically, you get the Pittsburgher with an Iron City. I prefer Budweiser, but Primantis is a Pittsburgh classic. I've never had a bad meal here. Amazing chili as well.

    At Primanti Bros., you order your sandwich with the side dishes stuffed inside it, so you can perform some sort of manual labor with your right hand and eat with your left. Read more

    Dripping with a 1930's feel this old school establishment is definitely worth a visit. Quick service when u get in . Unique sandwiches that hit the spot. Visit this location the original.

    I had the Pastrami and Cheese. Good but I wish it had some sort of sauce on it to give it more flavor. The fries were good! I think I would try a sandwich with an egg on it to give it more flavor.

    Love the pastrami and steak sandwiches. Slaw is amazing vinegar and sugar base. Huge but too good not to eat every bite!! Go to at strip and walk it off afterward visiting all the shops.

    Sandwich with fries, why not? Amazing combination of the foods. The sandwich size is so huuuuge, you might consider sharing half with a friend. The Primanti Bros. has become a symbol of PA.

    Win, win, win!! Pastrami sandwich was awesome and the local Iron City Beer was great with it! First time through the city and only here for an hour. I want to come back!

    I get the tradition, but the corned beef was delicious - I felt it was kind of diluted by the fries and coleslaw on the sandwich. If I went again, might ask to separate. Even if that is blasphemous.

    worth it to go once or twice on your trip but not a end all be all amazing sandwich, plus they arent really that filling. I ate two and i was just full. no self respecting gut buster should allow that

    Because your in Pittsburgh and it's pretty much a requirement. Plus, this is the original location. Choose a classic sandwich or try the chili cheese fries, their perfect on a rainy day.

    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.

    I had the ham sandwich. What can I say, the sandwich is absolutely delicious and disgusting at time. It's with white bread, squished with fries and slaw. I couldn't finish mine.

    If you like sandwiches and burgers which come with fries and slaw, this is the place. Just know that the fries and slaw are on the sandwich, not the plate. This is roll up your sleeves food.

    In the 1930s, working-class men didn’t 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. Read more

    Ask for extra bacon, always. Even if your sandwich already has it. Ask for more. Its delicious.

    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.

    Capicola & Cheese is a great "first-time" sandwich. Did I mention that french fries are big here? Bring cash, they no a take-a the credit card.

    If you visit, or even are driving through, stop by to check out their all-in-one style sandwiched. Fries and coleslaw served inside, not on the side.
