Stopped in after a hockey game. I had heard that Tessaros is a staple restaurant in the burgh, but had never eaten there. For my birthday, since I love burgers and they supposedly had some of the best, my husband and I went over to give them a try. The atmosphere is loud and fun. It feels like pittsburgh inside....

Growing up in Bloomfield, I've eaten here more than a few times. Recently, I stopped in for lunch while in the area. The burgers are still just as good as ever. I love their Blue Cheese Burger! It is always amazing. I will continue to try to find other restaurants to keep pace with Tessaro's but I haven't found a... More

We went with pretty high expectations for a killer burger. Our table of four was seated quickly and the service was great. The burgers are the best I have ever had. No real surprise since this place keeps winning "best burger" year after year in Pittsburgh. What I wasn't expecting the great atmosphere! Great music and a wonderful dinning experience.... More

Excellent burgers served promptly and without much fanfare. The sides are good too. Service was friendly and efficient. Interior is pub like and it appears that many local to the neighborhood dine here. Will be back.

I heard wonderful reviews about the burgers at Tessaro's and decided to take my parents out for lunch while they were visiting. This was without a doubt the worst customer service experience I've ever had. We were greeted by a woman at the front door and told she could immediately seat us. We followed her through three rooms, all partially... More

Had a great taxi driver take us to Tessaro's on Saturday night when it was just impossible to get into many other restaurants. Love the atmosphere, the wonderful lady hosting and great comfort food. Just what we were looking for.

This old time bar was everything you have been told about it. Excellent burger, excellent staff, clean and even the fresh ice tea was perfect.

What a fun little bar with GREAT food! Very "neighborhoodish" so feeling welcome isn't a given but take the time to look around, listen, and EAT! Parking can be a challenge but look for close by street parking. We arrived around 5pm and had no issue with parking or a seat. We sat at the bar and had very fast... More
