Very good burgers made to order with fresh toppings. They have different sides but do not offer french fries which was a welcome change. They also have different sandwiches including the Italian sub sandwich that was good as well. Would certainly return in the future.

Located in the Bloomfield neighborhood of the city this place has one of the best burgers around. The pub atmosphere makes it casual and relaxing. Lots of Pittsburgh favorites on the menu and everything is tasty. Good price point for the value. Must use street parking. Thumbs up

We go here every couple of months and are never disappointed. The burgers are great. If you get here on a Thursday, the ribs are even better. Both pork and beef ribs are tender and tasty. The rest of the menu is also good. The staff is always friendly. They just added an outdoor area for eating and a new... More

Two sisters took over running this excellent burger bar that their late brother created. Local artist captured the family in wonderful paintings hanging in the several small dining rooms. (And great metal sculpture representing the city's 3 rivers -- should make a Tshirt of this!) Come on your own and eat at the bar; or come with a large gang... More

After a sad situation at a local hospital... We had lunch at Tassaro's...absolute bright spot in our day. Great bartender and fantastic burgers. Nice throwback bar, cold beers and a double eased the remainder of the afternoon...

I wanted to visit this place about 10 years ago based on good reviews. I moved to out of town to Jacksonville, Fl, and although I do come back to the area every so often, never had the chance to make it here. So, needless to say my expectations were very high. To be concise, expectations were exceeded for several... More

We stopped here after a shopping day last week, anxious to introduce my teenaged daughter to this Pittsburgh staple. We had not been here in years, but found that the food was just as good as we remembered. The place is not fancy, but it is a great neighborhood restaurant. I was surprised to see how many seafood items had... More
