For those who may not know (which included myself up until a few moments ago when I Googled it), August is National Sandwich Month.

You may be a lover of all things between two slices of bread, but when you say sandwich in Pittsburgh, one storied sandwich comes to mind.

Primanti Bros. has been serving up its signature stacked sandwich (stuffed with fries, meat, cheese, and often an egg) since 1933. The story goes that the fried-stuffed sandwich was a happy accident of sorts, but when the drivers in the Strip District discovered it, they were overjoyed. Putting the fries inside the sandwich meant they could eat a full meal one-handed while they drove.

It’s the magic of multi-tasking in a single sandwich form.
