When someone born and raised in Pittsburgh tells you there's only one place to eat a burger and offers to take you, I don't argue. When that place turns out to be Tessaro's, run don't walk. I'm a fan of traditional corner bars and Tessaro's...More

Simple the best burger on the planet. There is no secret to their success. They fresh ground their meat daily. Have lived in Vegas and New York and have never had another burger even come close to Tessaro's. Their steaks are fantastic too.....but the "Main...More

After seeing Tessaro's reviewed on t.v., we decided to eat there before going to a concert. It was as delicious as they said. Aside from some nice cold beers, my husband and I had the Deli Burgers. Yum! Perfectly done burgers topped with coleslaw and...More

We combined a family road trip with a search for the great US burgers and hit a high point here at Tessaro's. It's a casual bar setting in the heart of Pittsburgh's Little Italy (no Italian food here) that takes great pride in their burger....More

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

A coworker and I were out and looking for something to grab and drove by Tessaro's. There was someone to greet us immediately at the door and seated us right away. Our waitress was at our table taking our drink orders immediately. The service was...More

In a beautiful building in the Bloomfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh, many have told me this is the place for Pittsburgh's best cheeseburger. While they are very good, I've been spoiled by a few places in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois (like Farren's!!!). In addition to good food and...More

We've been meaning to try them and finally got around to it. We got there around 4:45 and found parking only a few doors away. When you walk in, it's very reminiscent of Cheers. We were seated near the bar (the only annoying part was...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
