Pittsburgh’s most famous sandwich shop is supporting their Steelers in a unique way.
Primanti Brothers, purveyors of sandwiches since 1933, are instituting a ban on fish this weekend for all 37 of their locations. Using the hashtag #NoFishFriday, the restaurant is spreading the word that they are taking fish off the menu through the weekend.
Primanti Brothers started as just a food cart in ’33, and has grown to become a local favorite. Their style is unique: all sandwiches, unless otherwise requested, are topped with french fries, cole slaw and tomato.
To be fair, Primanti’s doesn’t specialize in fish sandwiches. There is a sardine sandwich, a tuna sandwich, and a fried fish sandwich on the menu, but they make up a small number of the protein options.
And while we love the enthusiasm, isn’t it worth pointing out that Dolphins are mammals?
The Steelers host the Dolphins on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. Eastern. Check out the full Primanti’s menu here.
