While not a brick and mortar restaurant, Gus & Yiayia’s has been a food cart that has been in the area for since 1934. Owner Gus Kalaris has been selling ice balls, popcorn and peanuts out of his bright orange cart since 1934. On particularly warm Pittsburgh days, the cart really hits the spot. For more information on Gus & Yiayia’s, click here.
