We actually went twice, once on the way to Pittsburgh and once of the way home. Very unique food where they put coleslaw and fries right on the sandwich!! I had the meatball sandwich and it was amazing. On the way back a burger, which was only ok. Stick with the sandwiches. Fast service but the restaurant was really busy... More

Never had a sandwich with everything under 2 slices of bread; fries, slaw! Thought it would fall apart as soon as I had it in my hands. That was not the case & it was delicious. Everything kept together until I got it in my mouth. I had the double egg & cheese.

They are known for the coleslaw on the sandwiches, and I normally love coleslaw but it's more of a vinegar coleslaw than a creamy coleslaw and I wasn't a fan. The sandwiches are very big and do not come with a side. They also have wings that are rather pricey.

Went up for a Pittsburgh game, this place is a must for tradition. Food is heavy, like most spots in Pitt. Service was super slow tho. They did comp us the meal to make up for our 45 min wait at lunch time , it wasn't even busy.

stopped here for lunch recently. Quick service and great Primanti's sandwiches as usual. The quintessential Pittsburgh restaurant and signature sandwich.

Ate here at the Monroeville location of the famous Pittsburgh restaurant chain. Visited on an NFL Sunday, was seated quickly, service was prompt and friendly, lots of TVs to watch games. I had the Pittsburgher Sandwich and it was awesome. Son had the cheeseburger and said it was good. Table shared tater tots. Prices were good. Location near Monroeville mall... More

By special request, our out-of-town family requested a meal at PRIMANTI BROTHERS. There was a gang of us but we had three waitresses who catered to our every need. Starting with nearly every appetizer on the menu, the dishes just kept on coming. The waitresses were so accommodating and brought extra plates for sharing. They even took our pictures for... More

This is just another place for some locals to be annoying to tourists or visitors. I went with family but the staff and customers made the experience marginal. I'd rather go DAHN TAHN....
