What is a Pittsburgh style sandwich?

It is easy to recognize a Pittsburgh style sandwich. The french fries and coleslaw are the ingredients that make it so unique. Originating in a famous city eatery, locals and out-of-towners alike, have been enjoying this treat since the 1930s.

A quick survey

Have you ever tried a Pittsburgh style sandwich?

See results

If you have ever been to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania or anywhere else around the area, chances are pretty high that you have seen a Pittsburgh style sandwich on a restaurant menu. You may have even eaten one.

With the exception of finer restaurants and fast food chains, practically every dining establishment in the western part of Pennsylvania serves their own version of this regional favorite. If the menu says Pittsburgh style, then you know it is going to have fries and coleslaw on it.

Originally made famous by the Primanti Bros.® restaurant, it's always a top seller anywhere.

If you haven't been lucky enough to try one, you've probably seen the sandwich featured on various television food programs.

Give it a try! A Pittsburgh style sandwich may not be the easiest sandwich to eat, but it's worth it.

This is just a list of suggestions. If you don't eat meat, try an all-vegetable version or, if you love meat, try making one with a few different meats.

Ingredients for 1 sandwich

  • Italian bread - 2 thick slices
  • Deli meat - about 1/8 pound
  • Tomato - 2 thick slices
  • Cheese - 2 slices
  • Coleslaw - about 1/3 cup
  • French Fries - a big handful
  • Condiments, if desired

Begin the sandwich assembly with the bread

Don't use a skimpy loaf of bread or thin slices for this sandwich. If you can find it, a nice hearty italian bread is perfect.

I have seen italian bread around the entire Eastern part of the U.S., but I'm not so sure about other areas of the country. Look for it in your local bakery or grocery store.

If you can't find italian bread, any other hearty white bread will do.

You'll need two thick slices. Lay one slice down on a plate.

Add your choice of deli meat

Put the meat of your choice on the bread.

I use about 1/8 of a pound.

For this sandwich I used pastrami, because to me, it is the greatest cold cut ever.

If you want, you can warm up the deli meat. Just heat a non-stick pan up and warm the slices for a few minutes. It does not take long.

I enjoy a warm sandwich because it melts the cheese a bit.

Add your cheese

Who doesn't love cheese?

Place about two slices of your favorite cheese on top of the meat.

As I said before, I warm the pastrami, so when I put the cheese on, it begins to melt.

I always use provolone for this sandwich. It adds a mildly sharp flavor to it and holds up well when taking big bites.

Add the french fries

The next thing that gets added to the sandwich is the french fries. Yes, you read that right, french fries.

It's the fries and the coleslaw that make it Pittsburgh style. Without them both, this is just another sandwich.

Restaurants use those good greasy french fries, but at home I don't have a fryer, so I use a bag of frozen potatoes. Bake them according to the directions on the package.

I prefer the thinner french fries, but crinkle cut work well too. About one handful is enough for one sandwich.

Add the coleslaw

Slaw piled high!

Place about 1/3 of a cup of coleslaw on top of the french fries.

The traditional sandwich uses a sweet and sour slaw, but I have had this sandwich with a mayonnaise based slaw and a broccoli slaw. I prefer a lighter vinegar and oil version because the mayo-based one is a little heavy with all of the other ingredients.

If you need a quick and easy recipe that is just right, try the one below. It only takes about 5 minutes to make.

Crisp coleslaw adds a fresh touch to the sandwich.

Oil and vinegar coleslaw recipe

  • One 16oz bag of shredded coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste

Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a large bowl and add the shredded cabbage. Toss until coated. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.

Add the tomato

In the summer, or any other time of the year, nothing beats a fresh beefsteak tomato that has just been picked and sliced.

If you can't have one of those, then another tomato will do.

Nice slices, about 1/4 inch thick, go on top of the coleslaw.

Finally, top off the sandwich with the second slice of bread. Gently press down so all of the ingredients mingle together.

Primanti Bros.®

Primanti Bros.® is a Pittsburgh landmark that has been around since 1933. They originally sold sandwiches to truckers and the warehouse workers in the city's strip district.

Over the years there have been some changes to the menu and the restaurant and, in recent years, they have expanded throughout the area.

For more information about this famous eatery, visit their website: primantibros.com

Enjoy your sandwich

Now it's time to enjoy this culinary delight!

If you want, add a condiment to the sandwich. I love mustard, so I usually put on a generous portion.

You really don't need a side with this sandwich because it comes ready-made with french fries and coleslaw. Just serve with an ice cold beverage and enjoy. A crisp dill pickle also hits the spot.

Don't forget to have lots of napkins, and maybe even a fork and knife, because it does get messy!

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to have my lunch. Yum!

      Hi Bill - When I was dating my husband he took me home to meet his parents and we went out and had one of these. I couldn't believe it, but it was great and I'm hooked. They put fries on salads around here too. I guess everyone needs their carbs. Thanks for reading!

      I never knew this was an "official sandwich"...my son makes sandwhiches like this all the time and we call them Dagwoods, after Dagwood in the Blondie comics...he always made multi-tiered sandwhiches.

      Interesting and appetizing hub.

      Voted up, useful, and interesting.

      Gillmore Twin Fan, brings back memories (or lack of memory) of my college years at Pitt in the 70's. Went to the strip district in the wee hours of the morning, I'm sure alcohol was involved beforehand. I think the price of every sandwich was the same ($2.95 I believe) and there were "No Substitutions". The new locations just don't seem the same. Maybe it was the alcohol or maybe it was the friends. Thanks for the flashback.

      Wow., there is a name for it! I am from the south and have never seen anything like this on a menu. Had no idea a whole region of the world ate this way. I always thought of this sandwich as " the impatient bro. " My brother would stick his fries or any potato ( including mashed with gravy) and slaw(any salad) between bread with his meat (any meat was fine) and then he would take that sandwich and go! I will have to share this article with him.

      Hi GTF,

      I have never heard of this famous sandwich but boy does it sound and look the business!! I have never gone down the route of "chip butties" with chip in bread sandwiches always find it an odd combo but they are very popular. This however really does appeal to me and I would definitely need the knife and fork I think! LOL

      Love all the ingredients, suggestions and tips. I have never made a coleslaw with oil and vinegar so that was a very useful tip I will try!

      Loved how you relayed the history of this Pittsburgh classic mixed with all the other components, great job!

      Your photos make my mouth water! I love the idea of the vinegary coleslaw and I also vote for pastrami as the best cold cut ever. Made with thick slices of Italian bread, this has to be a sandwich fit for a king. In Peru, French fries are often added to sandwiches and burgers. I wonder if they learned it from Pittsburgh?? I plan to try this as soon as I'm in the U.S. and can buy the ingredients. Thanks! Voted up and shared.

      The last time I was in Pittsburgh was about 3 years ago. While I spent a few days hanging out in Market Square I didn't, however, try the Pittsburgh style sandwich. In fact, I can't recall seeing this as a menu option anywhere I went. Perhaps I was too focused on people, work, and getting my caffeine fix. Regardless, this sandwich looks delicious and I can't wait to try it at home. - Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Glimmer - This sandwich sounds delicious. There are a couple ingredients I cannot have, but the rest sounds yummy. Your hubs that are recipes hit the spot, and I see how popular they are by the views you have accrued. I peeked, but I knew the answer already. I am originally from New York State, and am surprised I haven't run across this favorite. Sharing. Blessings, Audrey

      Hello Audrey - My apologies for not responding sooner. I was out of town for a while. Glad you liked the recipe and I'm sure there are substitutes for the ingredients you aren't able to have. Thanks so much for letting me know and I hope you enjoy your sandwich!

      I love the idea of fries in a sandwich. How did I never thought of it before? I'll have to try it! And I like the bread you are using. It looks like Russian bread called "baton".

      Hi kalinin58 - The bread I used was Italian bread, but it's probably similar. The fries really make the sandwich! I'm glad you commented on this because I wasn't sure what to make for dinner, and I might just make these sandwiches. Thanks for reading and commenting!

      Thanks Kristen. It is a good one and since I haven't had lunch yet I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. Enjoy the sandwich if you make one.

      Glimmer, I will, maybe next month. I never had that type of sandwich before. So why not try it out? Go for it!

      No I have never had one of these but they make me hungry. I have many times, put potato chips on my sandwiches but never french fries. I love the idea of the deli meats with the fries and slaw. Interesting recipe.

      Hi suzzycue - Apologies that it took so long to reply. I like chips on my sandwich too. Adds a nice crunch to it. Thanks for stopping by and reading the article.
