    Primanti Brothers® has been a Pittsburgh tradition since the 1940s. Stop by for their iconic sandwich on fresh Italian bread piled high with meat, cheese, fresh-cut fries, tomatoes and cole slaw.

    I really don't understand what all the hype is about. I've tried pastrami and cheese and kielbasa and cheese. Neither were bad or anything They're just not that good. Very overrated in my opinion.
