Johnny's Place, Pittsburgh

Johnny's Place is an unprepossessing bar in North Oakland (256 North Craig Street, Pittsburgh, PA‎). Inside, though, it has a handful of beautiful tables, walls decorated with autographed memorabilia of local sports heroes, a friendly, enthusiastic proprietor, and really splendid sandwiches.


The decor really grounds it solidly in Pittsburgh:


 





On my latest trip, I got a superior Reuben:

The picture does not capture the cloud of steam that fogged my glasses when I picked it up, or the splendid flavor of the sandwich.


Johnny's makes a bunch of other sandwiches, and every sandwich I've had has been splendid. I'm particularly fond of the turkey-bacon hoagie and the meatball hoagie; the friend who introduced me to the place is partial to the steak and egg sandwich.


Johnny's also serves superior onion rings, with tender contents and a lovely crunch:


One order of onion rings is large enough that I prefer to share an order with several other sandwich eaters.

Johnny's is well worth a visit for diners in the Oakland area.
