Take a look at Bettis Grille but not worth it - tourist trap IMO
Better off going to Beer Market and
If you are going between August and October, I personally suggest Penn's Oktoberfest - right up there with genuine German brews
Peppi's is a mainstay, but yea - Primanti's all the way
If you're a foodie like me and don't mind traveling in every direction of Pittsburgh within a 45 mile radius, I have an endless list of dive bars and pizzerias - don't bother with Quaker Steak and Lube wings - unless they are bigger, crispier, and saucier that day, if you're lucky - get Louisiana Lickers and/or Atomic wings. See Duss Ave Cafe, Spencer's Down Under and Fat Head's - oh yea, Wiggy's Wings, Suds and Spuds
Don't bother with chains - that is what Pittsburgh is all about - Mom and Pop places
I'm from about 45 min north of Pittsburgh, now in Baltimore (yuck! I know)
