I got the feeling that this place was being run by 3 generations at once and I like that. It was a busy night and we waited on the sidewalk for our table. We were kept informed and only had to wait about 20 minutes. The menu is simple and the place is known for their burgers which are very good. They also have a good selection of specials that feature many seafood selections.
I will return.

Our entire party had Tessaros burgers...all were cooked to perfection. Each ordering a different temp (md rare, medium, and medium well), all distinctly different and perfect.

The aroma of real hardwood is perfect through your entire meal and food is obviously prepared with love and talent.

Experience it for yourself, wont be dissapointed.

Pluses:
The burgers at Tessaro's are large (my wife and I split one) and tasty, the atmosphere rustic (think log cabin). Prices are good (1 entree split between two adults, two kids entrees, 4 drinks under $35 including tip), and no wait to get in.
Minuses:
The bar area is small and crowded, especially if a local team is on TV. Service is average.

We (visiting Pittsburgh) went to Tessaro's with two other adult friends (from Pittsburgh) on their suggestion, and it was fantastic - great food, good neighborhood bar vibe, friendly service. With drinks, dinner will run around $25 pp, including tax and tips. Everything seemed to be well prepared - a couple out of our party had the pork ribs, which were juicy with great flavor. Nothing dissatisfied, and we'd go again.
