Food & Fun

To really know a town, you've got to taste it, and East Texas food provides a delicious diversity.

Pittsburg has restaurants to suit all tastes and moods - whether it is barbecue, soul food, soup and sandwich, gourmet, ethnic, hamburgers, steaks, great cakes, pies, milkshakes and malts - all great dining experiences.

You must try Pittsburg's favorite - the famed hot links. The downtown factory serves these tasty sausages right next door. Eat them the way the locals do-on butcher paper, served with HOT sauce and crackers.

Enjoy the nostalgia and charm of the 1950s at an authentic soda fountain on Main Street, or upscale dining at a restaurant located in one of Pittsburg's charming historic homes.
