Best Burgers!

Wood fired burgers and a hometown bar atmosphere make Tessaro's a must do when in Pittsburgh. The tables are very close together. You'll make friends with your neighbors either sitting down or at the bar. The waitresses are friendly but in a rush. There will be people there of all ages and... read more

The food is good and the service is excellent. Parking can be an issue at times. Try it, you'll probably like it.

My son and I went there due to their ratings that other people had given them. The staff was great, the burgers we ate were amazing. However, FYI make sure you are not starving because this place is pack and you might have to wait a few minutes. Happy eating!

Tessaro's has won best burger in Pittsburgh for many years. It may not be the best but it certainly is right up there. The food and drinks are great so your chances of getting a table are slim. Plan on waiting outside until one frees up. The sandwiches and fries are there best but they have a large selection of... More

Read so many reviews of this place and it sounded so good. And it was. My husband and I loved the burgers - great flavor and awesome char, cooked to order. He had the home fries and I had the potato salad. They were both fine, but I love good, salty fries with a burger. I just do. Service could... More

Stopped in Tessaro's in Bloomfield last week. Had the Hamburger salad, which was both unique and very good. Others in my group had burgers and grilled chicken sandwiches. There was a good selection of beers, and the food and service were both very good. I would recommend this place to others to try if they are in the area.

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 recommend this place and... 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.
