I was there in the spring and got my usual Philly chesse steaks. I'm not going back until I hear they're still the same owners and what I got was mistakes.

The distance might be the same, but I think Monroeville commute is a bigger headache.

Route 28 is a breeze when there's no construction. Even with construction, it's only bad during peak. Monroeville is a headache almost any time of day.


I think the exit is named for the river valley of the Allegheny River.
It may very well be named for the river, but Harmarville, which is another name for the Allegheny Valley exit, is considered the Allegheny Valley. In fact, Harmarville, Cheswick, Springdale, Tarentum, Brackenridge, Natrona Heights, Arnold, Lower Burrell are all considered to be Allegheny Valley. So the exit is obviously named for the river, but IMHO is also named for the general area know as the Allegheny Valley and the towns mentioned above. For what it is worth, I have heard Millvale, Etna, Sharpsburg, Aspinwall all the way up Freeport Road to Blawnox referred to the Lower Allegheny Valley at times. The area from Harmarville to New Ken is well know as the "Valley" to people up that way.

Saw this walking out of a bar one night in Cheswick.

I guess you're right about people from that neck of the woods thinking differently.

I'm very aware of the Allegheny Valley region, but I think of Allegheny Valley on a more grand scale.

Let's mark our differences of opinion on the meaning being due to your being a previous resident of 'Cheswick' and my being from some obscure location in 'Pittsburgh!'
