A must when in the Buffalo area

Use to live in Buffalo/Amherst and I always stop there when I am back in town. You have to try the Onion Rings. I lived in LA and I thought Pinks was great but No one beats Teds.

We always stop at Teds whenever we're in the Buffalo area. Charcoal broiled locally made footlongs with a fantastic house hot chili sauce . With very reasonable pricing, you can't go wrong. It would be nice if they also sold beer.

Love, love, love their hot dogs. Cooked on an open grill, full of flavor and you get to pick your toppings. Yummy!! Can't wait to go back to Buffalo, this is a must when ever we are there. Buffalo and Ted's, always in the same sentence.

The atmosphere is clean and it is an order and pick up deal so service is not an issue here. The food is not very good and costs too much. Not recommended.

Ted's is famous in the Buffalo, NY area for serving charcoal broiled hot dogs. Yes, real charcoal! It is summertime all year long at Ted's. They serve Sahlen's hot dogs, which is also a locally made product. Other options are hamburgers, italian sausage, and fish sandwiches, with fries and thinly sliced onion rings as sides. They used to be just... More

Bacon, bacon, bacon. I had bacon on my hot dog, a hamburger and Loganberry drinks. You just can't duplicate charcoal flavor, so I'm glad Ted's grill over real charcoal.

Cooked to order over a charcoal grill. High end fast food. Hot dogs, hamburgers, fries, etc. Kids (7 and 11) loved it. Will go there again! P.s. Try the loganberry drink. It's unique and delicious.

Born and raised in Buffalo, It's east to throw a Sahlen's hot dog on the grill, but for some reason, Ted's is the best you can do! Fries and onion rings are great and the shakes are really good too! A Buffalo tradition to not be missed!

We thought we would stop for a quick lunch. It looked like the whole town had the same idea. Though there was quite a line up, the wait was not long. Everything ordered came nice and hot with no incorrect items. They have quite a variety to select from. One helpful thing was that they had beef and pork. They... More
