The Battleship and Destroyer calls it a "Battleship Sandwich" -- it's 3 feet long and filled to the gills with salami, ham, cheese, shredded lettuce, tomato slices and Italian salad dressing. The "Destroyer" is only a foot long. Rick Seback, the Pittsburgh Video Historian has immortalized the place and the sandwiches in one of his 'Burgh videos on PBS. But some at other foodie places call 'em Subs and some call 'em Hoagies. .... Like, "Yinz wanna sub?" "Yinz want some hoagies?" But the REAL other sandwich around here is the Primanti's sandwich--Whatever kind of meat etc. you want piled on a large square bun specially baked, with shredded lettuce, tomato slices, and a pile (yes a pile) of french fries on all that with the other piece of the square bun on top. Stands 4-5" tall. You can ask 'em to leave off the fries at Primanti Brothers, but they won't. Signature Sandwich. Primanti's Pastrami Sandwich is to die for... or rather to ride yer bullet 25 miles for.
Got cha Cuz. Always wondered why some people call them "hoagies" what the heck is a "hoagie"? Some sort a critter? We call them subs, cause of there obvious shape.Like a U-Boat. Yinz Guyz seem alright. and your samwitches even better I may just have to take a cruise down there the next time the G-men play da Steelas, and get me a Primanti Samwitch. And I suspect we also share the same utter, "feelings", For the Cowboyz
