If you love Hot Dogs and are in the Buffalo area, don't miss Ted's. And the Loganberry is just as it was in the 1960's. Enjoy. The hamburgs and French fries are very average fast food. The onion rings were oily, overcooked and just plain awful. But this place is about the dogs and they are great.

Say what you will about hot dogs there is nothing better, for me, than a charcoal broiled HD with all the fixings including Ted's famous hot sauce. Every time I'm in Buffalo I make a special stop. You might stand in a long line, but you get to see them cook your dogs the way you want them. Also great... More

Well worth the hype! My 13 yr old son enjoyed the cheeseburger and regular dog. He also liked the vanilla milkshake although for the price I thought it should be a bigger size. I enjoyed the regular dog with ketchup and mustard. Love the charcoal flavored taste with nice crunch! Capped it off with a chocolate milkshake. Will recommend and... More

Revisiting my youth and enjoyed my foot long hotdog and fries. Cooked over Charcoal--- exactly like it was over 55 years ago-- too many french fries but they were so good I ate them all. You can go home again in Buffalo, if you go to the right places

The first restaurant I visit, every time I visit home. The hot sauce is addicting. The hot dogs, with everything, are oh so good.

This restaurant has been around for around 50-60 years and was known as Ted's famous hot dogs. I believe this is one of the restaurants reviewed on Triple D by Guy Fieri, not sure. Anyway the hot dog wasn't bad, it was cooked the way I like it but the bun was not toasted, heated, or buttered. I prefer my... More

I ordered the footlong with fries. It' nothing fancy, just a hot dog but it was cooked on a charcoal grill and tasted pretty darn good for a great price. Even received a military discount which made it cheaper. I would eat there again if I ever come back through town.

This is NOT a sit down and have a waitress take your order. You stand in line with the rest of the world and watch them cook hot dogs with skins. Onion rings ans vanilla shake complete the meal. Great taste at a moderate price.

Visiting Teds is so predictable: You walk in, get in line with the other people and they ask you what you want to eat, and they ask if you want fries or rings, then someone else asks you what you want to drink.. all the while watching your food being prepared in front of you on the grille. You pay,... More
