We just tried Double Wide in Irwin, PA for the first time. I was super impressed with their HUGE selection of vegan/vegetarian and gluten-free options as my family and visiting relatives for Thanksgiving are both. We originally were sat in the bar (with three little ones ages 7-12, which I thought was a bit weird...we weren't asked even for an option), but we asked to move and the original waitress went right into the kitchen and complained to everyone about us moving. This is a dock in a star because as a former waitress for many years and customer service rep for all the other years, I think that's very rude and immature on her end to do so. I asked multiple people to apologize for us moving to her (because although she should get over herself, I DO get it that she's now losing her tips from a big table of 7). But the food was DELICIOUS!! I absolutely loved the vegan take on a Philly cheesesteak (as ive never had one, even when I ate meat). I tried my brother's vegetarian gyro and it was ok (I've had better), but definitely not bad. The new waitress's service was exceptional and we gave her a better than 20% tip for it (so well done waitress!) And the time it took to get our food seemed a little long considering they weren't particularly busy...but it was all hot and fresh so it was worth the wait! Plus we were all famished so maybe every minute seemed to take longer (and it wasn't really that long?)...who knows. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place to people with special diets...LOTS to choose from!

I was here for the first time, a few days ago. A friend invited me for dinner and drinks, and then to stay for their Live Entertainment. East Coast Turnaround was playing a set in their BIG, BEAUTIFUL Bar! The place was packed, but we still got fantastic service from the bartenders! The food was HOT and FRESH, and you can definitely tell that it's prepared "To-Order." Prices are VERY reasonable for the type and quality of food. Huge Beer Tap System - those prices were reasonable too! Anyone from Irwin that thinks this place is inferior to the DWG, is foolish. DWG's beer prices are higher than the Firepit's, plus their food is obviously pulled from a freezer, microwaved and served. I will definitely choose The Firepit over DWG any day!

I have been here many times since they opened (only 4 months ago,) and have never had anything but GREAT experiences! The food is different for the area, which is a huge welcome, compared to the corporate chains like Applebee's and Double wide. Having fresh-made, from scratch, food prepared by real chefs is a definite plus! Service is always impeccable!!! Fast and friendly! Another HUGE plus about this place is the ownership...a local husband and wife, that are always there checking on their guests, cleaning, and making sure that everyone is enjoying themselves. Atmosphere is very warm and trendy, and the entire restaurant is SUPER CLEAN!!! I will certainly be back, and will refer everyone to this AWESOME new addition to North Huntingdon!
