Tootie's Famous Italian Beef specializes in slow roasted meats. Our meat is very tender and packed with flavor. We put it on a bun with cheese and pickled vegetables, wrap it up tight to squeeze some juice into the roll and hand it to you. Lots of customers have said its the best sandwich they have ever eaten.

This is some of the best roast beef I have had anywhere, if Pittsburgh were capable of making good bread this would be one of my favorite sandwiches in the country. Good stuff.

When you need a break from pizza & gyros in Southside, this is the place. Convenient late night hours on weekends. The Italian beef is superb. Tender beef and delicious seasonings. One hell of a manly sandwich. More...

Best. Place. Ever!


Nick Nartone

Never had anything like it. I was expecting it to be roast beef. Instead, the beef is shredded, kinda like pulled pork, simmered in a broth of sorts, and served with a vegetable chunk sauce kinda deal. DELICIOUS. Try it.

Omg... Our dinner tonight was fabulous. Every bite. The chili is amazing. The mac and cheese is out of this world. The beef is so freaking good it really should be illegal. Lol!!! Didn't try the brownie yet cause I am so stuffed. See ya tomorrow for another sandwich! Thanks for making the best sandwich in southside! More...

I was waking in south side, hungry. A wispy hand embodied by the sweet aroma of the Italian beef caused me to float down the side street and into Tootie's. Dumbfounded, mouth a gape, I stuttered until I made my choice. Half a block later, I had but the sweet drippings that came from the glorious beef sandwich. Now only a memory. A beautiful memory.

We drove an hour to go to Tooties after seeing the commercial on our local station. The hospitality was A1 and believe it or not but the food was even better than that. Our only regret is not getting sandwiches and mac and cheese to take home. And that pickled mix on top of the sandwiches is a must!!!! Great job! More...

Best Italian Beef in town! Perfect location, great staff!


Mike Folker

Stumbled in after smelling the amazing food from out front of The Rex. The owner helped us with some samples. Everything was delicious. Went with the beef sandwich and chilli. Try that Mac n Cheese too! 24 hours later I'm craving it again... too bad we live in Columbus! We'll be back the next time we're in town. More...

Best food!! We make a point to stop every time we see a show at The Rex. Carl is the best!!! Get the chicken Mac.


Susan Houseman

Good italian beef but they didn't dip it... maybe one has to ask for it "wet" as they do in Chicago. I should've known better. Good Bacon Mac n'cheese. Pasta wasn't smooshy or pasty. Al dente ... perfection. Get a large. The only thing they need is sport peppers. The pickled carrots, cali, and peppers were good. They could give ya 1/2 a scoop more of the meat to cover the bread spread but I would say it was all good. I'll be back. More...

I was so lucky to have Tootie's cater my 50 th birthday party! Everyone loved the Italian beef and chicken, the mac n cheese with bacon & the fresh rolls. Such a nice change from the usual party fare. I highly recommend it for your next party...or even for just for a regular dinner night! More...

You are slipping. You told my business partner the same thing about grub hub last week you told me. 2 hours and no food is a joke.


Chuck Dumont

It’s on uber eats. They might be good. Ordered it and it got canceled within the hours that was posted. Don’t advertise delivery if you don’t actually deliver at that time.


Chris Snyder

100% the best cant go wrong with anything on the menu the beef is the best though


Richard Dwayne Stevens

I tried to stop by today. Apparently wasn't open lunchtimeish. Oh well, Pub Fish and Chips got my business. Might stop back if they ya'll get yall shit together...


Michael West

Great place! Awesome Italian beef sandwiches, their mac & cheese is top-notch, and treat yourself to their biscuits & gravy! A Pittsburgh gem.

Our Italian Beef. It is seasoned with 12 herbs and 3 vegetables. The flavor leaves your mouth craving more and the slight spice lingers on your lips.

Our clients typically pick from our standard menu. We are willing to work with clients for some special request.

I love watching people try our food for the first time. Its like a switch turns on and their mind is blown.

My mother, "Tootie". Growing up, I didn't know what a great cook she was. I wanted to honor her by sharing her recipes with everyone (she is still walking and talking).

If you are looking for catering that your guests will talk about how great it was, you need to choose us.



We offer drop-off buffet style catering and limited staffing for large events.
