A week ago today, we road-tripped to Pittsburgh, PA for the long President’s Day weekend. We have much to share over the coming weeks about the BIG things there.
Our first meal was at the original location of Primanti Bros., a culinary institution which was recommended by pretty much everyone. It’s known for BIG sandwiches with a wide selection of fillings.
Matt, always up for a BIG artery-clogging challenge, ordered this hot sausage and cheese monstrosity:
When you order sandwiches with “the works,” you will get tomato, cole slaw, and – oh yes – French fries. ON the sandwich.
I ordered the spicy Pittsburgh-style chili. The four of us shared the cheese fries.
The kids had sandwiches too, although there is no kids’ menu at this location, and much of The Girl’s huge portion went uneaten.
Overall, yummy. And the waiter called me “honey,” which is music to my 40-something ears.
