Before bread, sandwiches were haphazardly supported by two hands high-fiving. Celebrate bread-bolstered structures with today’s Goupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of gourmet sandwiches at Triangle Bar & Grille in Swissvale.
For 64 years, Triangle Bar & Grille’s tricornered walls have housed mammoth Italian sandwiches, as well as grilled American-style creations stacked atop crusty, fresh-baked bread. The infamous 24-inch Battleship sub ($12.95) encases 1.25 pounds of just-sliced salami, ham, and provolone cheese, and can serve an alternate use as a barbell. Sandwiches come in two other sizes ($5.50+) with toppings that include homemade hot meatballs or fried bologna. All subs are crowned with lettuce, tomato, and onion, as well as oil and vinegar, spices, and a choice of cheese. Lest yards of sandwich meats fail to appease ardent appetites, customers can fill remaining stomach space with extras such as chili ($2.40) or potato salad ($2.25). Grab a stool along the original, buffed countertops, or wait for your torpedo-shaped sustenance to blast off and choose a seat for you. Triangle Bar & Grille is a cash-only establishment, though they have an ATM and unlimited Monopoly money on premises.
