Worth the wait in line!

When planning our trip to visit friends in Gilbert area, we put Ted's on the list of places we needed to try. Our friend saw Ted's in a local newspaper and they hadn't tried either. They have other food too, burgers, chicken, etc., but we had to get the hot dogs. Fitting with the hype, we waited in... read more

I won't return. I stopped by for lunch. I ordered a small burger, an order of their homemade onion rings and a small drink for almost $10.00. Will never return. Overpriced, overrated, and greasy food. Terrible experience. Would never recommend.

I have tried a vegetarian hot dog here and it was good. A good place if you like to eat good food and you have less time at hand.

After years of living right down the street from teds and years of my parents raving about their hot dogs I finally tried one. I was NOT disappointed! It was made when I ordered it, the fries were yummy and overall everything was priced fairly. Next time I'm back home, I'll be going there!

We lived in Tempe for seven years. It's where our children were born. I come to Phoenix yearly on business, and I drive to Tempe to visit the old haunts. We were there when Ted's first opened, and I come back because the dogs are great. I order two and can barely finish half. There's a line, but it's worth... More

Being from western New York I was excited to find Ted's in Tempe! True to the restaurants back east, the place was packed. What makes it worthwhile that thirty people would be standing in line just waiting to order? First is authentic Sehlen's hotdogs - top of the line. Finished over an open flame, nestled in a fresh bun, and... More

I've been coming to Ted's for 15 years, and whenever I'm in Phoenix I make a special trip here. The line is always around a half hour long, so plan accordingly. The meats are charcoal broiled, and made fresh before your eyes. The hot dogs and sausages are the best you'll feel in the Phoenix metro area, hands down. Don't... More

Stopped by Ted's on the recommendation of my daughter. We were not disappointed. The have dogs as well as polish and brats as well as hamburgers. Fries and onion rings are made fesh every day. Milk shakes were delicious. They also serve Mac & cheese. We enjoyed our meal and will definitely go back again

I feel somewhat conflicted about praising Ted's in Tempe, as any true fan of the Ted's franchise knows it begins and it some ways ends in Buffalo. As someone who makes a beeline for Ted's whenever I'm in Buffalo (I mean go directly from the Airport, morning, noon and night), having a Ted's in Tempe seems a of a knockoff.... More

Tried Teds a long time ago, and wasnt particularly impressed the first time. Gave it a second chance to see if it was just an off day, which everybody has. Sadly its much the same but at a higher price now. Value is *NOT* consistent with the revised prices, and that detracts greatly from the overall experience. The food is... More
