The best burger in the United States!!!!! Having a Tessaro's burger is an experience. One that I have weekly. 😇 The owners are very friendly and if you become a regular as my husband and I have they know what you want when you wake...More

Cool spot and a lot of fun. Went with friends for a nice casual dinner. We all did burgers which they are known for and it was amazing. Fun night out with friends!

One of the best burgers cooked perfectly! Skip the Home Fries though. I'd call 'em "diner home fries" meaning they sit on the side of a flat top grill until needed so some are over cooked, soggy and mushy.

My daughter and I decided on Tessaro’s and found street parking quite easily nearby. There is a comfortable bar and some cozy tables in the clean, well lit restaurant. The smells from the kitchen were enticing, as were the plates around us, but we settled...More

I didn't get any info about the origin of the meat, so I'm afraid they come from industrial farming and therefore the animals have been tortured all their lifes. The burger quality is average, the prize is average too. The potatoes are not fried but...More

Wow, great 1/2 lb burgers, best home fries ever, good selection of draft beers. No wonder the place was packed on a Tuesday evening!

I was told this place had great burgers and the information was correct. It felt like I stepped into 1985 and there were lots of families. Burgers were cooked perfectly and were full of flavour.

This place has been doing it right for over 30 years. Their burger was cooked to perfection. My guy loved the chicken, potatoes (with melted butter on the side), and salad. Atmosphere was great. Thank you for the delicious dinner!

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
