Primanti Brothers is an Italian sandwich shop chain founded by Joe Primanti in 1933 in South Philadelphia. After 40 years, Jim Patrinos took over the store.
Since then, the sandwich shop chain has 44 locations all over the East Coast. Primanti Brothers was one of “America’s Classic” restaurants in the 2007 James Beard Foundation Awards.
The store’s overall look is an intersection of history and modern times. Some of the décor showcase the store’s history. The place is always clean.
Their signature sandwiches are loaded with fresh and tasty grilled meat, provolone (a type of Italian cheese), homemade coleslaw, and crispy French fries.
The best items on the menu are the capicola and New Yorker sandwiches. The homemade coleslaw is sweet and tangy. The resto’s famous fries are perfectly crispy and seasoned.
The staff are kind and patient. Since this is not fast food chain, waiting time isn’t as quick. But that is understandable seeing how the sandwiches are always made fresh.
