06 MarWhy we love Fatheads in Pittsburgh, PA
First off, let me clarify, I love Pittsburgh. Every bit of it. When my family gets the option of going to the beach, or to Pittsburgh, it’s Pittsburgh every time. So we may be a little biased. Maybe. Steelers (Stillers) fans? Check. Pirates? Check. Pens? Check.
We love the Strip District and Station Square. We love the architecture and the best group of blue collar, hard working people we have ever met. But every trip inevitably ends up at Fatheads. Usually its after a day at Sandcastle water park. All day in the sun then we’re off for a sandwich the size of the Great Gazoo’s space ship.
If you haven’t been I encourage you to go. They’re located at 1805 Carson Street on the South Side and ample street parking is usually available. Plus they offer over 40 craft-brewed beers on tap. But the star of the show, for us at least, are the sandwiches. If you’re lucky you’ll be able to hoist half of one up for a bite. And if you somehow are able to unhinge your jaw, that’d be helpful too. The only thing that surpasses the enormous size is the amazing taste. Everything is made fresh when you order. You’re not going to get yesterday’s mystery meat on your Frisbee sized roll.
Stop by the next time you’re in Pittsburgh. Check out the upstairs shop for a little swag. Then sit down for one of the best meals in the Steel City.
