In Pittsburgh, you put the coleslaw on the sandwich, along with your french fries. Everyone knows that Primanti Brothers has been doing it this way for years.

Check out the Sterns review on this site. They have several locations in Pittsburgh, and even one now in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

    My favorite sandwich: Pastrami with slaw and Russian dressing (or 1000 Island) on an onion roll. One of the best was at the Boston Deli in downtown L.A. (about 20 years ago, don’t know if it is still around).

      Slaw is one of my favorite foods. I like it on, or on the side, with a prefernce for minimal vinegar, though a little is OK. One of my fav's is a reuben with slaw instead of, or in addition to kraut. My family's recipe is similar to many here; shredded cabbage, carrots and a little onion, mayo, salt and pepper. We also use an ingredient I haven't seen on this thread; honey as a little sweetener. I prefer buckwheat as it adds an interesting flavor. Me gusta!

        If its a BBQ Sandwich it goes on top,Unless you want to look like a Yankee then put it on the side.

          Slaw dogs ?
          Right medium - cabbage.
          Wrong condiment - should be sauerkraut.

          8 million New Yorkers can't be wrong. LOL.

            you can judge a restaurant by its coleslaw. If they take the time to make good coleslaw and not scoop it out of five gallon tubs, chances are the rest of the food will be pretty good.

              I never liked cole slaw, and formed an even stonger opinion after hearing some of my day workers talk about working at a disgusting place that filled those 5 gallon tubs mentioned by renfrew. I do eat it now, but as he says only a restaurants that seem to make it themselves and as another poster also mentioned KFC. The Back Eddy in Westport Mass,in my limited opinion makes the best slaw, followed by Scales in Millbury Mass, and then KFC. KFC, I know, must come in those tubs, so I guess it depends on who fills the tubs in the first place. The most interesting way to eat cole slaw that I have seen is my Dad's method of dupming it on top of fried haddock. I eat it on the side. It is very likly that those of you in New England have eaten slaw made with my cabbage. I used to sell thousands of cases via the wholesale market in Chelsea.

                JM - you from the 'Burgh too? Am a native but moved away.

                Love the slaw on Primantis sandwiches. For the bbq hounds, LOVE slaw on the sandwich, which makes it "Memphis Style". It's a perfect mix.

                Think I saw someone mention same, but LOVE the Colonel's coleslaw!

                  Slaw ALWAYS on the side. The Colonel's is good. Just the right crunch for me.

                  A good slaw dressing is miracle whip(the ONLY time I'll use it)vinegar, and sugar to taste. Make sure you let the sugar dissolve well before deciding it's too sour. A little celery seed, and don't over mix. I also like the addition of a small amount of carrot and purple cabbage for color.

                    We were in the Pittsburgh area last week (Rochester, PA) and I took the SO to lunch at Primanti's. After driving past the place (I hadn't been there in 20 years) I asked a dock worker, "Where is Primanti's" to which he replied, "right ovah dere". Alright, I see it now, on the side street. We got the pastrami with cheese......topped with french fries and cole slaw. The waiter comes to the table and with great flourish WACKS it in half in front of you! Best sandwich I've ever had. This is the no mayo cole slaw.........tossed in vinegar and accompanies this gargantuan sandwich very nicely!!!
