Jim Dogs in West Mifflin. I swear the special sauce is Campbell's baked beans without the beans.

some good ones so far. i would say primantis is overrated on a national scale but pittsburghers are pretty realistic about it. i've probably had like 3 or 4 of them in my life. another one
PAMELAS

Not worth the wait anywhere.

I wouldn't mind Pamela's if they spaced the tables farther apart from each other and they used real maple syrup and butter on their pancakes (instead of corn syrup and "spread").

I've lived here 11 years now, and I have still to eat at Primanti's.

Not a fan of the round corner at all. Service is bad as well as the food. Not sure why people like it? Your "bicycling everywhere" makes no sense. How is that overrated? You feel it isn't worth it? You don't like to cycle? Overrated? Don't understand.
