The Big Mac Was Born Near Pittsburgh

You can visit the Big Mac Museum — which includes a 14-by-12-foot statue of the sandwich — in North Huntingdon.

The fiberglass burger is a 14-by-12-foot tribute to two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions on a sesame-seed bun.

The “meal disguised as a sandwich” was created by the late Michael James “Jim” Delligatti, a Pittsburgher who operated more than a dozen Mickey D’s in the area. It debuted in 1967 at the Uniontown location with a price tag of 45 cents and went nationwide the following year.
