My quest for the best burger in the City of Pittsburgh took me to Carhops Sub Shop…


Carhops is a small sub shop in the middle of a shopping center in the Monroeville area. It is a pretty ideal lunch spot if you have a limited time and are looking for a delicious burger or sub. Adam and I stopped by this spot after a long morning in the office, and the fact that he ‘accidentally’ left his wallet at home that day didnt spoil our lunch burgering. This is a causual, in and out, order at the grill and sit in the back, burger in a basket, lunch joint.


Maybe I was extremely hungry this day, or maybe it was just that good, but this burger really hit the spot. I ordered the Muira Burger and, priced at only $6.25, it came loaded with Mushrooms, Bacon, Green Pepper & Grilled Onions. The best part of this burger was the toppings, the pepers, onions, and mushrooms, were were grilled, while the lettuce and tomatoe created a contrasting crunchy texture. My only calm was with the cheese, which was on the lower end of the quality scale; but what can you really expect for a burger in this price range. At the end of the day, Carhop’s has made me a very satisfied customer, and I will be headed back not just for their burger, but also for their delicous looking subs.
