Stop hatin'. The Harrington is a family that cares! Ena is awesome and Tee, well, she is the matriarch for many misplaced people. Great food and a legacy well beyond all food reviews. Not a franchise but real people. I want a job there but I gotta go to Mexico!
This place sucked. You had to walk by countless blacks to get there. The waiter I had was some young punk kid who kept walking by people, farting by them, then laughing and high fiving the bartender. What kind of establishment does this? He thought no one knew what he was doing, but I saw it and one other couple noticed it. If he had done that to me I'd of cracked him in the mouth
Great grill restaurant in the heart of Bloomfield! <br>Excellent steak and burgers... The burgers are rather large! <br>Great bbq ribs, but only served on Thursday night. <br>I used to frequent this place when I lived in the city. <br>Owner is very friendly. Hostess (I believe the wife of the owner/ co-owner) didn't take my name, but rather the fact that I had curly hair.. I thought that was interesting.
I went with three friends to eat at Tessaro's on a rainy Saturday evening. I dropped them off while I parked the car. The hostess sat them and when she found out I was parking the car, she told them literally to ""GET UP."" She said they wouldn't seat them because I wasn't there. By that time I had arrived at the table my friends were still in shock by the utter rudeness. Tessaro's was a Pittsburgh institution that my family had frequented for years. Our treatment is a disgrace to its reputation
After searching Pittsburgh for a decent hamburger, I kept getting recommendation for Tessaro's from friends and from internet searches.\r <br>\r <br>I dined alone, early afternoon, when they were not busy. I got attitude when saying I was by myself. I was seated at a cramped table, and everything looked dirty.\r <br>\r <br>I ordered a burger, cooked medium, with cheese and some condiments. Since they don't have a fryer, I ordered some of their potatoes, which are cooked on the grill with onions, peppers and spices. \r <br>\r <br>The burger came out well done. Grrr. If there is ONE THING that upsets me the most when ordering any meat, it is if you ask me how I would like it cooked, and don't bring it to me that way! The bun was nearly impenetrable by my teeth, causing the insides of the sandwich to come spurting out the back end. The meat was dry and flavorless - utterly tasteless. The lettuce was wilted, and the tomato was also flavorless. The ketchup bottle on the table was disgustingly filthy, so much so that I didn't use it. I am not averse to dirt or funkiness, but it was truly gross.\r <br>\r <br>The potatoes had been on the grill so long they were nothing but a gelatinous, gooey, greasy mess. I only took one bite.\r <br>\r <br>NOT ONCE did the waiter ask if I was satisfied or needed a refill on my drink or anything.\r <br>\r <br>I did not leave a tip.\r <br>\r <br>There are MUCH BETTER places that this place to get a good burger in Pittsburgh. Try Atria's (the original place in Mt. Lebanon), or Molly O'Grady's, also in Mt. Lebanon. Both serve burgers WAY BETTER than Tessaro's.
I have eaten here a few times as it is a few blocks from where I work. The food is great and yes they have good burgers. However, they without a doubt have the worst service that I have ever experienced and I still scratch my head wondering why? The bartender and staff are downright rude. My last meal there never happened because I sat for 10 minutes at the bar and wasn't even acknowledged as the customers on both sides of me were served. I then decided that I had enough and got up to leave. As I stood up to leave, I was then asked if I would like something to drink. My answer cannot be repeated here. I like this place and the food but I won't go back ever again. It is simply not worth the headache.
