Sandwich Place
$
“If yinz don't go here, everyone you tell about your trip to Pittsburgh will ask you if you had a Primanti Bros sandwich and if you say no, they are going to wonder why they are even friends with you. Believe me when I say you shouldn't need to eat for the rest of the day, but it's just one of those things you gotta try once! Or you could not - and say you DID. I think this is the original location, but don't quote me on that. There are several others as well if you want to try squeezing it into your existing plans elsewhere.”

Restaurant
“Pretty classic old fashioned gritty Pittsburgh diner with breakfast foods running the gamut from old standbys like pancakes and eggs to breakfast burritos and old school milkshakes. Expect long lines during weekend mornings, but trust us, it's worth the wait. Since DeLuca's is in The Strip District you might want to plan your morning around getting breakfast and checking out the open many small food markets and produce purveyors that made The Strip an iconic Pittsburgh neighborhood.”
