Headwich Heaven

February 28, 2008

Today we managed to drive out to the Southside in order to preview a new potential office space.     Well most people already know about this restaurant, but this post is a eulogy to Fatheads, the mecca of beer and sandwich lovers.    I love this place!   It’s definitely a must-see for any visitor that wants to get an unique taste of the burgh.    The restaurant has a livin-it-large tap selection of micro-brew beers and their sandwiches are ginormous –  heavily packed with meat and cheeses.    Great names like the Artery Clogger.   Popularity does have its’ price, you will always have to wait for a table.      Even at lunch, it was packed – we had to wait about 10 mins – whereas at other establishments, it’s very easy to get seated during the lunch hr.

We had six people in our group so we ended up splitting to two tables.     In our table, Rob got the Beauty and the Beasty, which is a pulled pork sandwich covered with their Beast BBQ (Super Hot) sauce with slaw, pickles & onions.     Dan got The Southside Slopes which is one of their most popular and probably deadliest sandwiches with kielbasa topped with fried pierogies, American cheese, grilled onions, and horsey sauce.    Finally, I got the Fuddwich, which has corned beef, turkey, salami, provolone and Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, hot cherry pepper mayo.   You can get it hot or cold… I opted for the dish best served cold.

Geno’s Fine Food…Indeed.

January 31, 2008

The SpaceTeam traveled, once again, into the very depths of Lawrenceville to uncover another gem, Geno’s. A very quaint bar/restaurant run by a very large, burley fellow with a thick Boston accent. His hands were like bear claws as he served us our drinks…they looked like ‘Killin’ Hands’. The gentle giant then brought us our food…of the bar variety:

Chili Garlic Bread Sticks Meatball Sandwich Deluxe Steak Sandwich

Dan & Kristin both started with the chili which got rave reviews. Kristin followed up her chili with an order of Garlic Bread, which was to die for. Rob and Dan both split a Homemade Meatball Sandwich and a Deluxe Steak Sandwich…both incredible (although a little overtoasted on the bun). And Brian also had the Deluxe Steak sandwich. The alcoholics in the group (i.e. Rob & B) ordered a Guinness and a Dogfish Head respectively. Eclectic atmosphere for a bar/restaurant…local art adorned the walls along with some old Pittsburgh city photography from the early 1900’s. Great place to eat and enjoy each other’s company and you won’t leave hungry.

Bonus: Foster’s Meats (Butcher) is located right next store.

Extra Bonus: They don’t wash their hands when they cut up your meat.
