    »Fat Head's Saloon

    Anyone who has a large appetite will love Fat Head's "Headwiches" because they are big... really big. And with names like "The Artery Clogger" and "The Bay of Pigs," you know they're chock full of goodness. Fat Head's also features a variety of burgers, subs and wings. There are a few entrees, but nothing beats the crowd that shows up every Wednesday for wing night. The full-service bar is usually packed in the evenings, with many patrons focused solely on the impressive imported and microbrewed beer selection. Lunch and dinner are served daily. See website for menu, beer list, online gift shop, and more.

    »Mario's/Blue Lou's Southside Saloon

    There was a time when Blue Lou's and Mario's were two distinct establishments, even though they had the same owner. Several years ago the owner knocked down the dividing wall to combine the bars. One of the hottest nightspots on the South Side, Mario's/Blue Lou's is always crowded. The extensive menu features sandwiches, salads, burgers and the famous BBQ ribs, which are roasted for eight hours before touching the grill. Also watch out for waitresses sliding down the fire pole bearing cakes.

    »The Original Hot Dog Shop

    Established in 1960, The Original Hot Dog Shop started as a small eatery. As the success of Syd and Moe's restaurant grew, the news of their secret sauce spread, and more and more people came by to try what they were missing. Restaurant expansions and menu additions soon followed, and in no time this place was receiving recognition on an international platform with television coverage, newspaper articles and magazine publications. Even today, if you ask any alumni what they most remember about University of Pittsburgh campus, the answer will likely be “The O.” A variety of hot dogs, french fries, subs, wings and pizzas is what you can try out here. Don't miss out on their famous fries, which fill a large plate that you probably will want to share! This lively place stays open late, and is a great option for a late-night bite.
