Best bits of Pittsburgh

Great food (a super burger on a salad, stayed Paleo), cozy, wall murals featuring staff that go back many years, excellent service, hostess/owner told us the interesting history (Irish family who did not change the name in the then predominately Italian neighbor).

Many people say they know where the best burgers are. But they always taste alike and disappoint. Tessaros has the best Burgers and they taste like no others. All other burgers fail in comparison.

Our go to place for burgers. Never had a bad meal here. My husband and I have been here as a couple, and have gone out with other couples here. There will be a wait on the weekends, most likely.

This is absolutely hands down the best burger you can get in Pittsburgh. I've been there many times but this was the first visit since I opened my TripAdvisor account. Although I have nothing against some of the chain burger joints that have cropped up in the past few years, nothing is better than the originals!

Great burgers, not much choices as far as beers on tap though. Can be crowded though. Go early or go on the weekdays. If you don't like crowds, stay away!

We always have to stop on our trips to Pittsburgh. The hamburgers are the best you are going to find and the atmosphere is casual enough for a family with young children. Love the potato salad and Cole slaw and red potatoes. The vegetables are always done well too! If tomato soup is the soup that day, get some.

Tessarro's has been delivering great food and great service for many years; it was a regular stop for me until I moved away from Pittsburgh 28 years ago, and I try to go there whenever I'm back in town for a visit.......such fond memories! It's larger now and still very busy;however, no one seems to mind waiting for a table... More

Wasn't sure what to expect. I've heard of Tessaro's before but wasn't sure if it was mostly Italian or bar food. It was better than expected. I got an unmeasured very fresh steakhouse quality burger. Specifically, I ordered the Cajun Burger- no Mayo with Pepper Jack cheese. The burger itself came encrusted with Cajun spices on a soft Portuguese style... More

I used to live in Pittsburgh and when I first moved there our neighbors recommended that we try two places and Tessarros was one of them. I am so glad they recommended this place. I moved away from the area about 3 years ago and going back to visit family and friends gave me the chance to introduce step-kids to... More
