Meet Pittsburgh Sandwich Society & the Pittsburgh Burrito Bus

“When you buy a sandwich from us, you become a member of the Pittsburgh Sandwich Society”

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.
