Devin Bush, the Steelers first-round draft pick, got to know Pittsburgh and one of its iconic sandwiches with a stop at Primanti’s.

Bush made his way to the original Strip District location on Saturday. He arrived in Pittsburgh on Friday to meet with the team and check out the city.

Primanti’s posted a photo of his visit to Facebook with the message, “You were our first pick. We’re glad we were yours. #WelcomeHome #HereWeGo”

They also welcomed him with a funny note on Twitter, “So here’s the deal, @_Dbush11 – the slaw stays on the sandwich. #WelcomeHome #HereWeGo”

Bush responded on twitter with the messge, “First and best sandwich as a Yinzer”

Primanti’s invited him to stop by after Bush was selected by the team on Thursday:

After Bush was picked, Chase Winovich, a Michigan defensive end who was also waiting to be drafted, welcomed Bush to Pittsburgh in a tweet and called on Primanti’s to set him up. Winovich, who grew up in Jefferson Hills, was drafted in the third round by the New England Patriots. Many fans hoped he would land with the Steelers.

Primanti’s also tweeted a photo of Winovich with a congratulatory note.

The Steelers posted a collage of photos showing Bush at several spots in Pittsburgh:

By the way, Bush went with the Almost Famous sandwich, which has grilled meat, melted cheese, coleslaw and, of course, French fries.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
