Primanti Bros.

When we told people we were going to Pittsburgh, people unanimously told us that we must - MUST - go to Primanti Bros. for sandwiches. We then discovered that Primanti Bros. has been on the Travel Channel like a billion times on a variety of the shows that we love to watch (like Man vs. Food!). So, naturally, this made us even more interested. We took a little walk from our hotel into the Strip District to get dinner.

We sat at the bar and ordered our food. The guys behind the counter assemble the sandwiches in a fascinating fashion. The sandwiches here are famous for their unique ingredients: besides just meat and cheese, they all are topped with coleslaw (more like a sauerkraut), tomatoes, and fries. Exceptional fries.

It was a wondrous time when I got my sandwich! Always a huge fan of egg sandwiches, I ordered a double egg and cheese sandwich. Oh good lord.

I enjoyed it very much!

Gibby ordered a cheesesteak, which in Pittsburgh is very different than a Philly version, but he loved it anyhow.

By the time we finished our meals, we were stuffed! Pay in cash, throw away the paper (no plates!), and walk on back to the hotel.
