Re: “Big Jim's In The Run

If you are into trendy quaint martini bars, this aint the place. However, if you want the best rueben and a cold beer, you are going to love this place. I just went there tonight because I heard Guy Fieri (food networks Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives) made a stop there. As I drove up, I almost turned around, this is not the type of place I usually go when I travel, but I wanted to go to a good old fashioned neighborhood bar when i was in Pittsburgh. I parked around back and went in. it was dark and poorly lit, but the food smelled awesome. I sat at the bar and the barmaid was really friendly and said they are famous for thier rueben. I ordered another option which was basically a reuben with a fried egg and cole slaw instead of sourcrout. IT WAS FANTASTIC!!! The people were great, and the bill for dinner was $12 including a great cup of soup. An awesome restaurant for the "Regular Guy" (to quote Rodney Dangerfield). The pizza also looked excellent.

Give it a try!!!
