With your foodie friend
El Paisano, 1542 Beechview Ave.
For your foodie friend who just adores the ultimate restaurant experience, this is the place to go. The restaurant serving Mexican food dishes up some of the best salsa verde you’ll ever have. This is no Taco Bell—it’s an authentic Mexican food experience. Appetizer chips are freshly fried and to die for. This place is no frills and BYOB, but you will leave 100% satisfied, especially if you love all things enchiladas and tacos!
With your little niece or nephew
Fiori’s Pizzaria, 103 Capital Ave.
Fiori’s is a great little pizza shop to take your little niece or nephew. Their pepperoni they use is a Beechview neighborhood favorite. Pittsburghers flock to this small spot with no more than a dozen or so tables and booths, so allow extra waiting time if you have hungry little ones. Slices are deliciously cheesy and more than just a little greasy. Fiori’s sauce is just slightly sweet too, making for a unique and remarkable pie.
With your best friend
The Huddle, 1648 Broadway Ave.
The Huddle is a great place to head to to catch up with your best friend. The traditional bar serves up American food made simply. Their wings are arguably some of the best in the city—there are only two sauce options and they are so good they stand on their own. For sandwich lovers, give the huge melty grilled cheese or the mouthwatering Reuben a try. They’re cash only though, so don’t forget to visit the ATM before you go! When it comes to Beechview restaurants, the Huddle is on the map!
With your significant other
Pittsburgh Barbecue Company, 1000 Banksville Rd.
This takeout-only barbecue joint with amazing pulled pork. The pork is simmered in a spectacular sweet and smoky barbecue sauce. The cornbread is dense and soaks up the barbecue sauce absolutely perfectly. Grab some yummy sides like mac and cheese and head home for a cozy night of Netflixing with a couple beers. Sounds like a great time to us!
With your favorite wing lover
Big Shot Bob’s House of Wings, 2102 Broadway Ave.
This Pittsburgh-based chain opened up a shop in Beechview and it’s a good one. This branch has quickly become a neighborhood favorite. Wing sauces have clever names like “Ace Boogie” with black magic butter and dry ranch and “Ain’t My Faulks,” made with butter, dry BBQ, dry garlic and dry ranch. Even the hoagies have fun names—the “Heart Attack” is made with deep fried capicola, salami, pepperoni, ham and bacon topped with American cheese and mayo.
