Fantastic burger

One of the best burgers I've ever had and excellent service from a super friendly bartender. I felt bad because I said that I didn't like the Cole slaw. She wouldn't let me leave without giving me a different side to take with me. I ended up with potato salad which was fantastic. I would highly... read more

We went for lunch for the famous best burgers. We had pepper cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo, and it was delicious. Ordered medium, came perfect. Very thick and meaty, no fillers. My guy ordered a Rachel which is corn beef and cole slaw sandwich, and it was great. We split our selections. They do not have fries which really who... More

My boyfriend loved his burger, and my hamburger salad was to die for. Juicy, flavorful, well seasoned burgers at a reasonable price. Fantastic atmosphere, and the tablecloths are super cool.

This is a great place to get what I believe to be the best burgers in Pittsburgh. Ordinarily I am not fond of homefries...but theirs are terrific. The atmosphere of bar and incorporated restaurant is really charming, very friendly and welcoming. They employ their own butcher and prepare their food on a hard wood fired grill. This is a can't-miss... More

Tassaro's has a large menu but I can't get away from the burgers - best in Bloomfield. They are very large and kind of sloppy. Issues are the greasy floors and the bathrooms are poor. Old atmosphere.

I had been wanting to visit this place for a while because I had heard they have good burgers. I was skeptical of all the hype, actually. I had to see for myself. All I can say is WOW! Tessaro's makes one heck of a burger. Could be the best in the area (although there are a few other places... More

Probably the greatest burger in Pittsburgh. Has been that way for years!! I LOVE the fact that they don't buckle to the pressure and offer french fries. Home fries is as close as it gets.

Visited the restaurant with two kids, 10 and 8.....the whole family enjoyed the meal. Nice selection of burgers, prepared perfectly. Home-fries were a big hit with all of us too. Overall, great, local family friendly restaurant.

This was the last stop on a food tasting tour of Bloomfield/Little Italy. We had received a lot of hype before we got there. "The Obama's love the food". "They prep the meat to make their own burgers" And when we finally tasted the product it just wasn't THAT good. The burgers were tasty but the outer burger was overdone/burnt... More
