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

    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.

    I wasn't particularly impressed with their sandwiches considering how much hype they get. They are OK.

    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.

    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.

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

    Primanti Brothers sandwiches are best when you've had far too much to drink. The secret sauce is alcohol.

    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.
