This place has been around for years and is consistently wonderful. One of the smallest kitchens I’ve ever seen. The food that comes out of the wood fired grill cooking kitchen is something to behold. But it’s hard to get past Best Burgers and Fresh Tuna Sandwich in Pittsburgh.

Sit at the bar!!! Families and people who enjoy no room sit at the tables. The staff are lifers and the burgers are legendary. One constant complaint the home fries are super boring & need help...if u don't do fries you'd better step these up. Beer is cold,service no frills. My husband tried the steak salad (1st time) & loved... More

Tessaro's is known for their burgers, so to be honest it was no surprise that we enjoyed a great meal on our most recent visit. The burgers are wood fired, cooked to order, & pretty much one of the best you can find in the city. I've been here several times and my only concern would be that it seems... More

For those of you not familiar with the joint, Tessaro's is a Pittsburgh icon located in the Bloomfield area of Pittsburgh. It has been there... More

Food: the burger. THE burger. They have an in-house butcher, so you can order it rare if you want. I had it medium rare. Super juicy on the inside, with an amazing wood-fired char on the outside. Hands down, easily one of the best burgers I have ever had. Needed extra napkins for how juicy it was. MMMM. Tip -... More
