Are you going to argue with my son?

He can't help where he can find his comfort food in Pittsburgh.

It is still there Jay, but it was bought out and has a new owner but the food is still the best kosher style food in Squirrel Hill.

Lox and Bagels on Sunday morning.

not at all max's food is okay( i like there bean wraps) but saying it's pitt centric it's no more than saying I like wendy's burgers...certainly no worse than saying that I like beef stew or meatloaf(which one could get at a pretty orginal place eat n park.


when I find an irish place in pitt. that has some good stew i'll be sure to tell the world. perhaps someone would like to point me in the right direction??????

Goodness, since the Blarney Stone in Etna closed a few years ago, I'm not sure if there are any Irish restaurants in Pittsburgh anymore.

I think the remaining Irish establishments are mainly bars, but you might want to try them out to see if their limited food selection includes a good stew.

Here's a list (exclude H because it's closed): irish restaurants loc: Pittsburgh, PA - Google Maps

The Original in Oakland has the best hotdogs, Amatos in Etna is my usual place for pizza and hoagies, try Aliotos it a lil better than Amatos. Salvatores in Wilkinsburg is pretty good also. I heard Pirmani bros was great. Bravos on mcknight is also good.

Isaly's chipped Ham

Pittsburgh has some of the best foods that can only be found there!
My fave 'burgh comfort foods:

Danny's Italian Hoagies (South Park) are the BOMB
Pierogies from that church in Carnegie
Wedding Soup

I haven't found anything like that here in the south, and while I'm learning to really love grits and great Southern BBQ, I still miss the above-mentioned items terribly.

The Devonshire sandwich at the Union Grill
Sloppy Vincent's pizza (in Forest Hills, of course)

There is another Danny's on Rt. 51 in Whitehall; we get their awesome hoagies from that location.

My #1 comfort food is a double egg and cheese from Primanti's. It's the first thing I requested after I had my kid

Pizza from Mineo's, too!
