OK, Burghers, past and present, how do you rate Pittsburgh Strip District breakfasts?
Here’s my list:  1 / Jo-Jo’s; 2 / Pamela’s; 3 / Roland’s; 4 / DeLuca’s; 5 /  Primanti’s.;aqi=&aql=&oq=;aql=&oq=Primanti

    Well, I have never had anything but dinner at Roland's.  And of course, Primanti's, which is open 24 hours a day, doesn't serve what most would consider breakfast food.  So my list would be very similar:
    1) Jo-Jo's
    2) Pamela's
    3) DeLuca's
    4) Primanti's

      I haven't been to Roland's, but I don't see anything breakfasty on the online menu.

      My own ranking would probably be 
      1. DeLuca's
      2. Pamela's
      3. Jo-Jo's
      4. Primanti's

      But that's really based on only a single visit to each of Jo-Jo's and DeLuca's.

        Come to think of it, its probably been quite a while since I ate breakfast at Rolands - about two expansions ago.

        I started out in the late 1960's going to Vince and Henry's (DeLuca brothers) before the next generation of DeLucas took over. 

        Then the DeLuca home fries began tasting odd, snd I switched to Rolands. 

        After Jo-Jo's opened at their former location, I began going there until the restaurant closed. 

        For a few months I went back to DeLuca's and Rolands before I found out that Jo-Jo's had reopened on a side street about four blocks from its original location.

        In recent years, I get to the Strip less often and usually split my breakfasts between Jo-Jo's and Pamela's, which is a relative newcomer to the Strip's restaurant scene.
