I get to Pittsburgh every couple of years and one of my go to places is right here. I have never been disappointed and never had a better burger and I've had plenty of them including the famous Bob Cat Bite in Sante Fe..If you...More

For some reason they take great pride in not seasoning their food. It shows...everything needs salt here, not to mention other seasoning. Good cooking requires proper seasoning at proper times, and you cannot just add salt after cooking to achieve the best taste.

If you are a single professional looking for a place to have drinks, this is probably a great place to go after work. The bar was very busy and had an attractive crowd. The restaurant was packed. If you have small children, I would think...More

We lived in the Pittsburgh area until 2002. This was always our favorite place for a great burger, and it still is. They have a wood fired grill and fresh ground beef done on premises. They don't have a vast menu, but what they do...More

This place is a must in the 'Burgh. The food is excellent and my order has always been made exactly as requested. I gave them 5/5 because the food is that good and the prices are great. I will caution that one of their hostesses...More

My wife and I got to Tessaro's early Friday evening. What a wonderful find. We each had the Steak Salad. The sauteed mushrooms, onions, potatoes placed on the greens and then topped with the steak had a great blending of flavors. They provide a salad...More

We dined here in January with friends and had a really good time. The burgers are huge and flavorful. I had the barbecue bacon burger which was fantastic. My wife had the reuben burger and was disappointed with the quality and flavor. Drinks are pricey...More

The only thing that I did not like in this place is that they do not seat you if your party is incomplete (even for one person). We had to wait there for 15 minutes even though there are available tables. Their entrance is very...More

Finally got a chance to stop here. Funky atmosphere but dark inside. We requested a lighted area and we got one (closer to a serving station so we got to watch the action) Smelled great inside. I got a cheeseburger. 1/2 lb. of grilled meat,...More

This is one of those places pittsburghers will continue to go regardless of how good the food is. I really don't understand why everyone loves this place. The burgers are good, but they just don't stand out. I would honestly rather eat a Five Guys...More

Did not see any. I think no. That being said the burger is so huge and the side (hash browns/potato salad/veggies, etc) are so filling......One should not snack. You'll be lucky to finish the burger and side on an empty... More
