we have a quizno's.
Hey luvs_food in Pittsburg you also have Isleys home of the famous ice cream bar. My ex grew up in Pittsburg, in Shady Side. I have visited there twice and found it to be charming. We would go to a restaurant on the river, not sure which river.[/quote]

norgeskog,
i love pittsburgh, but haven't been to shadyside, just driven through it on my way to see friends in Squirrel Hill. all of the ritzier towns surrounding Pgh. are nice, too. gorgeous houses.
is the river you're speaking of Alleghany River? the one by Station Square where you have to ride an incline to get up onto Mt. Washington?

For burgers it is In & Out, although we don't have any near here.

When I started applying for jobs all over the country, I checked each place to make sure there was a Taco Bell within driving distance!

Taco Bell is a favorite of mine also. I would say the fast food restaurant I go to the most is Carl's Juniors. Famous Star is my favorite hamburger. McDonald's does have the best fries.

Ya Luvs_food, that is it. Squirrel Hill is another place where my Exs family lived and I believe Monroeville???? Is Isleys still there now that they are marketing the Klondike bar all over the states now??

I love Pittsburgh too!! So much to do and see! I went for a weekend down there (lol, since my idea of a vacation is a weekend in PA , because I live in upstate NY) with some college friends after we graduated. The only thing I didn't like was the time I was going to visit a friend in WV and got lost in Pittsburgh......................... don't ask! but, it was in early-morning rush hour... what a nightmare!
