The Primanti Brothers opened their restaurant in Pittsburgh in the 1920s. Their idea was to create an eating place that was simple but offered tasty food. It is no wonder that the Primanti Sandwich was the result -- it's a whole meal in each bite. Ham, french fries, tomato, provolone cheese, and coleslaw are stuffed between two slices of Italian bread and served on wax paper. You can't get it any simpler than that.
