I stopped at The O around midnight during my last visit to Pittsburgh because it had been a number of years since I had one of their fine hot dogs. I was there during the perfect time because the bars had not let out yet so I was able to walk right in and grab a dog and get down to business.
Traditionally, I would give The O very high marks as one of Pittsburgh’s finest “drunk food.” Of course it would have to follow Primanti Brothers and who could of course forget the infamous Tom’s Diner on Carson St.
I ordered the Chili Cheese Dog with onions and mustard, my staple method of ordering any hot dog. It passed the snap test with flying colors, and was also extremely messy, a sign of a well made chili cheese dog.
Overall, I give The O an excellent rating of 4 hot dogs on my rating scale!
