I was driving back to Pittsburgh from Virginia on Saturday, and came across the Route 40 Classic Diner in Brownsville Pa. The place is classic stainless steel with old style booths and a counter with swivel stools. 50's music completes the classic feeling. The menu is typical diner fare, but I didn't look long. As soon as I saw the burgers, I knew what I was eating. The Fat Burger, is aptly named. Check this out...1/2 pound of beef, topped with an egg, then hash browns and on top of that, bacon.
Tasty! This diner would make a nice afternoon day trip from the city.
The Route 40 Classic Diner is located right on 40, in Brownsville Pa.

The Burgh (as the locals call it) is loaded with unique and unusual foods. The home of chipped ham, (yes, chipped) steaks cooked "Pittsburgh Rare," Pirmanti's Brothers sandwiches, church's that cook and serve periogies and monster size fish sandwiches and many other local specialities. I'll talk about all of these as time allows, but now I'm getting hungry!
Now I know that this city can't compete with the culinary offerings of some of our larger city's on the coasts, but I just don't care! I like to go to some of the more popular food forums like Chowhound, Roadfood and a few others, but they just don't capture the spirit of this great area. I'm talking about unique, enjoyable, fun, and social eating.
I'd like to start some discussions on favorite local food and drink finds, and get all of your ideas on these and other subjects...Maybe even meet a couple of local foodies! Feel free to leave your comments!!
