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!

I stopped in here for a late lunch with a co-worker about a week ago. We both ordered a cheeseburger cooked medium, and he added bacon. The food came lightning fast, possibly because we were eating mid-afternoon. When the food came, both burgers had bacon...More

We went to Tessaro's and it was excellent as usual. The burgers are simply the best I have ever had. The sides are very good as well. The service is superb.

This is one of my favorite places for burgers. I love the history and the atmosphere. They grind their own mean and it’s cooked over actual wood fired grill. With the popularity of the burger themed spots tessaro’s is still a stand out for me....More

Awesome. Thinking a Burger bar would be lacking but we were wrong on so many points. Awesome ambiance, quick courteous staff and the food was off the chart. Had the Kelly burger and home fries and wife added some cheeseburger soup. Good thing we had...More

Wonderful food. Reasonable prices. Super friendly and accommodating staff. Went there as part of a Bachelorette party and they made space for our group on a Friday night. The wait-person patiently took each complicated order. Then even split out orders into separate bills! I was...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
