This Restaurant In Pittsburgh Used To Be A Gas Station And You’ll Want To Visit
Stroll down memory lane to the days when attendants filled up tanks at the corner gas station, where you could also pick up a gallon of milk and the day’s edition of the newspaper before going on with your day. When you visit this
restaurant in Pittsburgh, once the corner gas station on the South Side that countless Pittsburghers have passed, you will feel as though you have traveled back in time.
Sitting on the corner of East Carson Street in the South Side, Double Wide Grill was once a Texaco gas station that ensured Pittsburghers could fill up their gas tanks to make it to and from work and play each day.
Get a quick glance at the Double Wide Grill as you're driving by and you just might mistake it for a gas station. Among the outdoor tables sit old gas pumps and the Texaco star still sits proudly on the building.
Stop for a closer look because this former gas station turned eclectic restaurant promises something that not all restaurants can or do: It caters to carnivores, vegans, and vegetarians, making it easy for diners to satisfy their cravings and to meet their dietary needs.
Sit outside or grab a seat near the authentic memorabilia inside. Toast Pittsburgh with a drink at the bar, which is directly underneath an old truck. The full bar features 36 draft beers and 40 beers on tap from which you can choose.
Browse through the extensive menu that features such carnivore favorites as barbecue ribs, pulled pork, beef burgers, turkey burgers, and New York strip steak. A kid's menu is also available.
Vegans and vegetarians will also discover plenty of meal options such as wood grilled veggies, junkyard nachos, meatless stroganoff, smoked provolone mac & cheese, and a vegetable and tofu skewer.
Those who require a gluten free diet will also have a generous selection of gluten-free dishes, among them the jailhouse beef chili, the double wide salad, the sirloin sizzler, and the BBQ wood grilled salmon.
Sit back and relax during your meal so you have plenty of room for dessert afterward. Choose from such scrumptious dessert options as the death by chocolate cake, Oreo cheesecake, red velvet cake with cream cheese icing, or a homemade ice cream sandwich.
Double Wide Grill welcomes diners daily and features separate hours for the kitchen and for the bar. (Click the link in the opening paragraph for a complete listing of the restaurant's and the bar's hours.)
