  1. Tis recipe is absolutely amazing. I return to this page whenever I make a copycat primantis sandwich. Thank you for doing the legwork!

  2. I've eaten there many times! Nothing else like it. Soooo good!

  3. It doesn't have carrots in it....why are you adding carrots?

  4. Unfortunately, it’s not even close to Primanti’s slaw. :(
