    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.

    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

    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.

    Do not be discouraged by the long lines! It moves fast and the food is amazing! Had the roast beef & cheese. Sooo good. Must visit if you find yourself in Pittsburgh.

    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.

    This restaurant's sandwiches, topped with French fries and coleslaw, are the stuff of legend. Visit the original Strip District location. Read more

    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

    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.

    Best sandwich in Pittsburgh! Old school place. Have to order the Pitts-burgher! The slaw on the sandwich is amazing! And the bread is fresh Italian bread!

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

    This "almost famous" restaurant has an interesting sandwich menu, and all sandwiches are topped with french fries and cole slaw. Try the popular Pittsburgher cheese steak.

    The place for foodies to go when it Pittsburgh. The corned beef and cheese with an egg on top is my favorite. Definitely worth waiting in line.

    Do not leave Pittsburgh without eating here, the Black Angus Seroin Strip is possibly the best sandwich I've ever had. Also try the Smallman Street Fries, they are bangin.

    The chili cheese fries are totally out of this world! Just the right amount of cheese and chili... Not too spicy, just right. Yummy!

    Beautifully sloppy and greasy sandwiches. Really? Can anything be better? I am going to have to try it with egg and hot sauce next time.

    get luke-warm water with your meal, your stomach physiologically can digest better, the gorge of fat, meat, and bread that will be down there after your meal.

    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.

    The classic Pittsburgh sandwich with burgers and coleslaw on the sandwich was created here, and you can't come to town without at least one stop to Primanti's.- Jonathan, Marketing Coordinator

    Cheap greasy sandwiched. Fries & Cole slaw come on the sandwich but I like fries on the side. A Pittsburgh institution. Multiple locations. 🍟🍞

    Always delicious and amazing. Tried the colossal fish last night. Needed some dressing. The slaw didn't wet it enough for me.

    The original never gets old. I would recommend having a beer even if you are there for early lunch. Great sandwiches.

    The one must-stop when visiting Pittsburgh. They have many locations now, but the original is the one to go to first.

    OVERRATED!!! Not sure how a sandwich w/ so many ingredients can actually be BLAND?!? A friend & I ordered two different sandwiches & shared... sadly, both sandwiches were equally UNDERWHELMING!!!

    Order a pickle on the side, and that's what you get. Literally an entire pickle on the side. What a deal.

    If you like it spicy - go for the Cajun. Otherwise, Sirloin and Cheesesteaks are great!
