Fat Heads South Side Saloon

1805 East Carson Street, Pittsburgh, PA - (412) 431-7433

The Sweet MB is another Fat Head's headwich that seems like it must have been created by a mad scientist.  It consists of Polish sausage, cut in half and grilled flat, salami, sauerkraut, provolone cheese, tomato and spicy brown mustard.  Definitely not for the faint of heart!
