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.”

Bar
“Funky, fresh take on Mexican food. Big, cool space. Always a scene. Lots of beers on tap with the specialty being Big Azz margaritas which are 22 oz. (in a lot of different flavors, but never made with a cheap mix.) If you're out late, they're on sale after 10 pm. Huge burritos, good wings (try San Francisco.)”

Taco Place
“Three gringos and an 8-legged culinary muse, who goes by the street name täkō, have brought the so-cal surf vibe to the steel city with south of the border force and fierce margaritas. easily one of our absolute favorites in town. If you like tacos this experience is amazing, Try the duck breast!!!”

Bar
“This place is located right up on Shiloh Avenue, next to Grandview Ave (where the lookout is). The staff is great, the atmosphere is one of the best on Mount Washington, low-lit and cozy yet fun because they have an entire corner filled with board games, great music, and their cocktails are incredible. I highly recommend the Old-Fashioned, they use fresh muddled orange and those new fancy purple cherries, the big round ice cubes, I mean come on!”
