With its origin in Pittsburgh, you don't know quite what to expect. I never thought of Pittsburgh as a big pizza place. When I first moved the South Florida several people told me to try the pizza here. They told me it was the best pizza in town. Luckily, they were wrong. It's not bad. But there's better. I haven't had a pie here in a long time.
Most people know about the Primanti Brothers location on the beach by Sunrise Blvd, particularly because its open 24 hours. Its not a very nice place to me; but this one is a lot nicer. If I were a Steelers fan, or a Primanti Brothers food fan, this is where I'd come.
I pulled up their menu on the web and decided on one of their signature sandwiches, which is a meat and cheese with french fries and cole slaw on a sandwich. The angus Top Sirloin sandwich caught my eye. I don't really like cheese with my pastrami. So I headed on down.
Inside, this is one step above your typical pizza place. There's a counter, wooden furniture painted green, and a bunch of TV for watching the games; preferably the Steelers.
The have the menu on the wall, and it seemed to be missing the top sirloin. Maybe its a new item, I though. So I grabbed a takeout menu and alas, it appears they no longer have the sandwich. I didn't want any of the other almost famous sandwich, so I opted for the Sicilian Cheesesteak, which is described as sliced beef with onions, mushrooms, a bit of marinara sauce with mozzarella cheese. It took them about 10 minutes to make the sandwich.
The menu says they use "Lotsa" Mozzarella on these sandwitches, but its a very thin covering. The sandwich really isn't that big; the bread is very light and when I pulled it together it wasn't very thick. It has an interesting taste, but at first it was very bland. I had to salt it. There's no cheese flowing into the meat as it does with a Philly cheesesteak. It's not a bad sandwich. But if you're a Philly Cheesesteak fan you won't want this. It's not nearly as good.
