This place has the best burger in the city and a ton of other great food at reasonable prices ... nice atmosphere ... gets really crowded on Fri/Sat ... but worth the wait for a table

I've lived in Pittsburgh and have been missing out on this place for over 25 years! Not sure why, just never decided to go. Anyway, my burger was absolutely delicious. I also ordered pork ribs to go since they only make and serve them on Thursdays and happened to be there then. I had them for lunch the next day.... More

Excellent take on classic American burgers! The Home Fries are out of this world, while the Red Skin Potatoes (paired with an awesome little cup of melted butter for dipping) are a good second choice. My only complaint is that they do not carry gluten-free buns. Come on, Tessaro's, help us Celiac-ers (and those who have an intolerance) out! They... More

We went for lunch on Saturday. Service is fast and friendly. Jessica helped us and did a great job, paying extra attention to little kids in the group. The seafood chowder was delicious but the chili soup not so much (tasted like spicy ketchup). Hamburgers were scrumptious and the grilled vegetables were just perfect. The house potatoes were golden brown... More

Dollars for donuts, this is simply the best damn burger in the Burgh. I order crumbled bleu cheese with bacon. The burger meat is the best - fresh and wood-fire grilled. Have been going here 2x a year for a burger for the past 25 years or so...NEVER disappointed. NEVER. And, the best part is...I do not think that anything... More

Party of 7, very accommodating and friendly staff. We dined at 5:00 so the restaurant was not crowded at all. I hear it gets very crowded later in the evening. Those who had burgers enjoyed them immensely. Those of us who had chicken (kabob and salad), not so much.

By far the best hamburger I have had in years. Wood fire grilled. Their chicken sandwich is also phenomenal and the wait staff is great. Very cool old style corner bar atmosphere. I've gone and walked right in, and there were times I had to wait in line. My favorite place in Pittsburgh to grab a burger. You cannot go... More

It's a bar for sure, but they do serve one of the best burgers I've had in the 'burgh. We went early so although the bar was full, it was the geriatric crowd coming and going. Looked like everyone was a regular, getting a hug and kiss from the staff before they left. Friendly place. Great burger.

Joined a friend for dinner at Tessaro's. We sat at the outdoor patio. Lively, but not too busy. Great ambience and terrific food.
