Haha, this is pretty funny, it wouldn't seem from the outside to be this way is, but the people are friendly, especially compared to many other cities.

I lived there for many years (over 30 years as to not date me too specifically ) and while I think it is probably friendly in comparison to many other metros I don't think it's as friendly as it is presented to be.

I am disabled (wheelchair and cane limited) and the difference is very noticeable (hence the reason I pointed out shopping). I think it has to do with the area I moved to (smaller town). It fits me better. It doesn't negate the experience I had though.

I'd also say Primanti's.

Some other random comments:

To describe something as overrated you need to establish it is highly rated in the first place. So I am a little puzzled at describing the food at D's as overrated--I personally really like the fries, but overall I think most people would agree it is just decent bar food, and not rate it as anything else. The appeal of D's is more in the huge beer selection, and overall vibe.

I agree Fallingwater isn't necessarily going to be a mind-blowing experience if you don't care much about architecture. Still, it exceeded my expectations. The house itself is pretty cool (assuming you are into such things in the first place), and walking around the grounds is really nice.

But GE doesn't have the "atmosphere".

What atmosphere? Never noticed an 'atmosphere' at The Triangle. All I ever tried to do is get some food, that normally was called in ahead of time, and peace out.

Everyone kept telling me I had to try their subs and when I did I was disappointed. Not horrible, just not what they were built up to be IMO. The couple times I was there I called ahead too.
