Steelers Sunday – Our Backup Pizzeria


This Steelers season hasn’t just been a rollercoaster for the Steelers, but for the TasteBuds as well. Each 1pm game, we host a small group of people to watch the game and share some food. Last season, we had a reliable option of Pasta Too on Federal Street. However, this season they are not keeping consistent Sunday hours so we are forced to expand our horizons. Thanks to a trusty Pennysaver insert, Lillen’s has appeared into our line of sight.

When I called to place the order, I was told that they are known for their Chicken; self-proclaimed to be “Best Chicken on the Northside.” Since it was a Steelers game, we wanted to stay close to tradition and order a pizza. We were very impressed. The crust was cooked to a nice hand-tossed depth and it was topped with a generous amount of toppings.

Lillen's on UrbanspoonBased on our first experience, Lillen’s is our official backup plan when Pasta Too is not open.  I also foresee needing to experience the chicken, if indeed they are the best on the northside.

While "TasteBud B" doesn't feel very photogenic, he certainly gets out and about to snap pictures of his food. He's passionate about sharing Pittsburgh events, food talk topics, restaurant recommendations and travel destination finds. (@PghTasteBudB On Twitter)
