Consistently good food at reasonable prices

The restaurant is always packed, but we never had to wait longer than ten minutes for a table. My Reuben sandwich was delectable. The green house dressing on the salad is so good that they sell it by the bottle. The strawberry pie is second to none...yes, it's that good and freshly made on the... read more

Very popular diner, very good food. Menu looks good, meals on the plates look even better. Usually there is lineup, but service is fast and well organized. Liver and onions are to die for

If you live in Oshawa you've likely eaten at Teddy's. It's well worth a visit. Large portions of basic fare like roast turkey with the fixings, club sandwhiches, wraos, hamburgers, etc. Servers are experienced and friendly. Famous for domed-topped strawberry and cream pies. We ate a late lunch/early dinner at 4 pm. Good time to go, as Teddy's usually has... More

Ok, the portions are acceptable, but everything is bland. No taste, no spices. It's OLD PEOPLE COMFORT FOOD. Tastes like hospital food. If you're over 60, and can't chew your food, you'll love this place.

Akwats enjoy every meal there, food is really good and the prices are great. Has an old fashion feel, good home cooked type foods. Salad dressing is to die for and the corned beef sandwiches are amazing. ...coconut cream pie is a must have. I only put 4 star because I find waitresses are a little hit and miss. My... More

Unfortunately, this restaurant used to be much better. I used to visit every few months but it has been at least a year since my last meal here. I normally get takeout as there is almost always a lineup for the dining room, but not today. I phoned my order in to save time and whomever took my order was... More

I love the food at Teddys; however, the long lines and wait times make it hard for any person with and kind of disability or ailment! I am not able to do the line ups so now I just so take out! And really it's all about the gravy and those strawberry pies lol! You know what I'm talking about!

After reading the reviews decided to try Teddy's on a day trip to Oshawa. We sat at the counter to avoid the wait. The waitress had only one other person at the counter, who had already ordered, when we sat down. She was also looking after the phone sometimes, and sometimes cash. She seemed to only be able to do... More

Teddy's is one of my family's favorite comfort food restaurants. The atmosphere is kind of a throwback to the 60s deli look, with sports memorabilia and kitschy decorations as you come in. There is almost always a line up at the door as this is the real deal: great comfort and deli food at the right price. When you are... More

after going to this place for almost 10 years, I complained about the meal and the owner told me the only thing I wanted was a free meal not to come back, he is a very disgusting person with no customer service. I will never go inside his establishment again
