There’s nothing better than sinking your teeth into a delicious sandwich, stacked high with meats, cheeses and veggies. Luckily, Pittsburgh has some pretty incredible ones. You know the drill, if you have a favorite sandwich in the ‘burgh you don’t see on this list, let us know and you may see it pop up in a later post!
1. Take visitors to…Primanti’s Turkey Breast & Cheese
We had to start off with the one sandwich place that Pittsburgh is most known for. The Turkey and Cheese at the original Strip District location (since 1933!) at Primanti’s is topped with their traditional french fries, cole slaw and tomatoes. Wash it down with an Arnold Palmer and you’ve got yourself the place to take your friends and family visiting our amazing city. For more information on Primanti’s click HERE.
2. For the ones who love to take charge…Carson Street Deli’s Build Your Own Sandwich
For those who are indecisive, or perhaps have more of a take-charge personality, the Carson Street Deli’s build your own sandwich option is a great idea. Choose from a bread base, cheese, 17 different types of meat, veggies and more condiments than you can count. For more information on Carson Street Deli click HERE.
3. For when you’re extremely hungry…Fathead’s Fuddwich
This South Side eatery is home to the giant Fuddwich sandwich, made with (are you ready for this?) corned beef, turkey, salami, swiss, lettuce, tomato, red onion and cherry-pepper mayo. For $12.50, this sandwich will keep you full all day. For more information on Fathead’s click HERE.
4. For when you feel like a true Pittsburgher…Peppi’s The 7 Sandwich
Peppi’s has been a Pittsburgh staple since the 1980s. If you’re feeling like a true Pittsburgher, you’ll want to try the #7, aka the Roethlis”burger,” which is a sausage and burger combo topped with egg and American cheese. Try it on game day to maybe give the Steelers a little bit of luck! For more information on Peppi’s click HERE.
5. At breakfast time try…Dor-Stop Restaurant’s Guy’s Version Jumbot
Featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Dor-Stop in Dormont is home to some pretty epic breakfast dishes. Use the toast in Guy’s Version to make a monster sandwich with hot sausage, jalapeños, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, green peppers, onions and eggs with a side of potatoes. You definitely won’t leave hungry. For more information on Dor-Stop click HERE.
6. For when it’s freezing outside…Smallman Street Deli’s Reuben
There’s nothing better when the wind is whipping around outside on a cold winter’s day than a piping hot Reuben sandwich. Smallman Street Deli’s sandwich doesn’t disappoint. Try it with turkey or their traditional pastrami. The Deli even offers the sandwich between two potato latkes instead of bread. For more information on the Smallman Street Deli click HERE.
7. During Lent try…The Original Oyster House’s Jumbo Fish Sandwich
The famous fish sandwich at the Market Square eatery is warm, crispy and so big the bun looks miniature compared to the heaping portion of fish. Slather some tartar sauce or cocktail sauce on it and you’ve got the perfect meal to eat during those Lenten fish Fridays. For for information on The Original Oyster House click HERE.
