In search of the best burger in the Burgh and Tessaro's did not disappoint. The burgers are very large and the home fry portion is huge! You'll definitely leave stuffed to the brim!

My wife, mother, and father went here last night for dinner. Overall I would say it is a good restaurant. They have about 8 beers on tap along with a decent liquor selection. They are primarily a burger/sandwich place. I got the breakfast burger with...More

One of the best specialty burger places in town. The new outdoor patio is especially welcoming. You must have the potato salad - - best ever.

We went to Tessaro's for lunch. We were really looking forward to revisiting a memorable spot that we previously visited frequently. We asked to be seated outside and the hostess said it wasn't available in a manner of rudeness that I've not experienced before. The...More

Did not see any. I think no. That being said the burger is so huge and the side (hash browns/potato salad/veggies, etc) are so filling......One should not snack. You'll be lucky to finish the burger and side on an empty... More
