I went to Pittsburgh again for this year's Anthrocon, and had some good and not so good Pennsylvania road food and Pittsburgh restaurant food...


Scrambled eggs, hash browns, and gyro meat
Scrambled eggs, hash browns, and gyro meat

With wheat toast and coffee. From I-84 Diner in Fishkill, NY.
The meat turned out to be preformed strips instead of being carved off a gyro rotisserie. It tasted like TV dinner Salisbury steak instead of real gyro.


Sausage and mushroom flatbread pizza

From Paninis and Pizza in the Westin Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA.

I've had better frozen pizza. The sauce was generic and the sausage is the pellet kind you find on cheap frozen pizzas.


French toast, bacon, and hash browns

From Big Mama's House of Southern Cuisine in Pittsburgh, PA.

Big Mama does great barbecue, but not so great breakfast, which she was only serving during the Anthrocon convention. The hash browns were exceptional, though.

Dusty wings, beer, and coffee

Egg, cheese, sausage, and bacon sub sandwich and a maple glazed doughnut with bacon crumbles. From Fernando's in Pittsburgh, PA.

Lamb and sirloin burger with shallots, bacon, whole grain mustard, and smoked gouda. From Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh, PA.


Thai curry lobster chowder

From Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh, PA.

Sharp Edge is a new Belgian restaurant that opened on Penn Ave. about five weeks ago.  They have a huge assortment of European beers and a less huge assortment of American beers (both continents).  The food is very good, too.


Western omelet and coffee

From Fadz Sandwich Shop in Pittsburgh, PA.

Don't eat there. Unless you like soot from an uncleaned grill in your food.


Real hickory-smoked BLT and fries

From Plylor Buffet in Brookville, PA.


This was real hickory-smoked bacon, not just hickory flavored. They smoke all their own meats, and the bacon had an intense hickory-smoked flavor you can't get from a supermarket. My friends said the ribs and other meats they got from the buffet were very good, too.

Cafe Milano offered some decent food, I'll have to keep that place in mind if I'm able to make it to Anthrocon again.

Great Lakes Burning River lager, as mentioned.

My mistake, I saw the title of the picture and then after posting the previous comment noticed the name and so deleted the question.

I will definitely be returning to Sharp Edge next year. Have you had a chance to visit August Henry's?

I've been to August Henry's last year, but not to eat. Just took video of Twitch karaokeing. I'd like to try the food there next year.

LOL! That is so awesome! Kind of weird, but awesome.

my foods would've been most of Furnando's menu, but no donuts for me.

I miss Steel City Diner for fresh off the grill eggs, French Toast and such. I had a warm bowl of grits at Big Mama's (same location) but was not impressed. Too many places are only warming or heating the food instead of cooking it! I'm afraid that's what you suffered at the I-84 Diner (which is really close to Snake's home: ask him and he agrees, it's no longer recommended).

Steel City did have good breakfasts. I liked their french toast; Big Mama doesn't come anywhere close. I'm surprised she didn't have waffles, because they're supposed to be a big part of Southern cuisine.
