Next up in our celebration of Pittsburgh food trucks is Pittsburgh Sandwich Society.
[ICYMI: We followed Beau Mitall and his mobile, wood-fired pizza oven (Alberta’s Pizza) to several of his regular Pittsburgh-area brewery stops. We also learned about what it takes to keep up with a global street food concept; Luke Cypher and the Blue Sparrow team brought us along for a look into their kitchen and onboard both of their food trucks.]
Here’s a look at how Mike Carney and his team at Pittsburgh Sandwich Society make some of the best burgers and burritos in the Burgh.
More than just a food truck. Meet the Burrito Bus and the Take Aht Window
A food truck. A burrito bus. And a take-out window.
Pittsburgh Sandwich Society is comprised of three moving parts.
The Food Truck: It covers the most ground and keeps a steady rotation of sandwiches on its menu. The Pittsburgh Sandwich Society truck is the team’s workhorse.
Pittsburgh Burrito Bus: operating from a restored Volkswagen van, the Pittsburgh Burrito Bus takes southern California inspiration and serves up a limited menu of burritos and runs less frequently than the food truck.
Take Aht: Every Tuesday thru Friday, the Pittsburgh Sandwich Society team serves lunch from a brick-and-mortar take-out window on 43rd Street in Central Lawrenceville.
