It turns out that Philadelphia isn’t the only city in Pennsylvania with a distinctive style of sandwich. Pittsburgh boasts its own special sandwiches, known for containing french fries inside the sandwich. Luckily, you can sample them at Pittsburgh Rick’s, a food truck that hails from Leesburg, VA (apparently they used to have a brick and mortar location out there). I ordered the pastrami and cheese, which comes stuffed with excellent pastrami, provolone, lettuce, tomato and (of course) french fries. I’m sure it’s pretty artery-clogging but it’s absolutely delicious and I highly recommend it.
You can find Pittsburgh Rick’s location on their Twitter.
