I'll second (or is it third at this point?) Cookout being awesome. Milkshakes are amazing and the menu choices are ridiculous. Unfortunately for me, the closest Cookout to my locale was off of I-26 in Orangeburg, SC and Orangeburg sucks. Looks like there are two locations closer to Charleston. Don't know if they are new or I somehow missed them.

As far as "Pittsburgh" food, I'll take Fathead's over Primanti's every day of the week.

If somebody opened one in Houston or Nashville out of the blue in a strip mall or redeveloped lifestyle center, would it be immediately associated with Pittsburgh or would it succeed or fail on its own?


I think if it still holds the same characteristics like the Pittsburgh stuff on the wall and maybe promoting it was such, then maybe (depending on the city, of course.) If not and it's just another place that serves "Pittsburgh-style" sandwiches, then yeah it can be hit or miss.

Cookout is literally the greatest thing to ever happen to college dining. They opened one in Blacksburg last year and my buddies and I end up there at least once or twice a week. You get a freaking feast for $5 and the food quality is better than pretty much any other fast food place I've ever been to.

I think a primantis would do good in state college.

I'm surprised there isn't one there.

I think one would do well in Morgantown too.
