History of Tootie’s
Tootie’s Famous Italian Beef started in November 2012. Since then, we have become a neighborhood favorite by offering the best tasting food (according to our customers) in Pittsburgh’s South Side neighborhood. Our menu is diverse and offers items you cannot get anywhere else.
In the short time we have been serving our delicious food, we have had visitors from around the United States and every continent except Antarctica. Most of them come to our shop after asking locals where they should get something to eat. They all say Tootie’s.
History of Italian Beef
Italian Beef is a Chicago born sandwich. It was created by immigrants working in the famous meat packing district during the early 1900’s. They would take their seasonings from their home country to season the beef, then roast it nice and slow. When finished, it was either shaved very thin or pulled. Typically, this would be served at large family gathering like weddings or funerals. The slicing or pulling allowed everyone to have some meat to eat on an immigrant budget.
Tootie’s is an experience and you will crave it after eating it.
