No, they're eating these:

What is that? Sausage sauercrout and potatoes?


That, my friends, is the "Primanti." It is to Pittsburgh, what the cheesesteak is to Philadelphia. Journey, if you will, into this heart attack of a sandwich.

The Primanti Bros. original sandwhich is thick Italian bread, filled with tomatoes, cole slaw, french fries, corned beef and cheese. As was said though, the sandwiches can technically have any meat you want and the steak and cheese version is probably one of the most popular. I always enjoyed a semi-annual trip to Pittsburgh so I could get "one of those sandwiches with the french fries in it." If you think about it, it's no worse for you than a corned beef sandwich with fries on the side; except in this case, the fries are in the sandwich.

I think it's cool when a city can have a unique sandwich all its own.

The cole slaw looks disgusting to me.

I hate vinegar so maybe I am just having a hard time getting over that part of the sandwhich.

The cole slaw is necessary to offset the dry-saltiness of the fries in the sandwich.
