Primanti Brothers: Last Stop in Pittsburgh

Melt-in-Your-Mouth corned beef, provolone cheese, tangy cole slaw, onions, tomatoes and... FRENCH FRIES?!?

OK I could only manage to eat a half of a sandwich, but it was fantastic!! I wish I had the other half right now.

Here is the same sandwich, sans everything except the corned beef. Doesn't it look a little sad and lonely?

Oh yea, cheese fries to die for!

The sandwiches come with all that stuff on top!

This should be a mandatory stop for any visitor to Pittsburgh. As luck would have it, there is one Primanti Bros. outside of the Pittsburgh area, and it is in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. That fact helped to ease the pain of leaving Pittsburgh, as I waddled on the airplane for my trip home. ..and the eggs.

I LOVE Primanti Bros! When my fiance and I flew into Pittsburgh last November we landed on a Friday night at about 10:30pm. We dropped our bags in our room at the hotel and walked the 8 or so blocks into the Strip District to get a sandwich - HEAVEN! That will be our first stop when we go this year as well.

Chrisine- I was hoping you had already been there! I agree- heaven! I'm jealous about your November trip. I'm not going again until April!! Have you had Benkovitz's fish sandwiches (in the Strip District)? Also heaven.

We haven't been to Benkovitz's but it sounds like it should be on our list for November. I'll be sure to report back. Thanks for the rec!

Jenn , I love you but you have to quit promoting the Primanti Myth. Please. Pleeeze.
Love you anyway

Lois! I didn't know it was a myth. It tastes real to me. I dunno... I like it. I realize it's maybe not actual homemade Pittsburgh food like the stuffed cabbage rolls, but they've carved out their own little touristy niche and I'm a sucker :)
