Usually our first stop when coming to Phoenix. Everything was very good, except the buns for the footlongs were dry at both ends.(less bun to eat, less carbs) Did not leave unsatisfied, never have. Got there 5 minutes before the main lunch crowd. Free dessert, basket of salt water taffy at the register. To whoever manages or owns Ted's of... More

You've got to give Ted his props. He correctly figured out all his Buffalo stores would run well in the winter but a Tempe store probably needed a lot of attention come January and February. Smart man. I have visited Ted's often, probably 20 or more times and I've never had anything but a great experience. Ted's meats are provided... More

although this is more than 2,000 miles from the "original" Ted's, the taste and preparation and jolly staff do credit to its eastern roots.... best hot dog in Arizona, we say

In a city where its hard to find a good hot dog, Ted's is your best bet. The have various kinds of dogs but the all beef is my go-to. Solid handmade fries and onion straws as well. Line gets pretty long during lunch hours so get there early.

First of all, I'm a vegetarian but 2 or 3 times a year I eat at Ted's hot dogs. The chocolate shakes are unbelievably delicious! This place is always packed - even around 2 pm on the weekend. If you don't like super sugary drinks, stay away from the lingonberry fountain drink - otherwise there are no bad choices here.... More

There is nothing fancy about this place but is serves the best hot dogs in Tempe if not the whole state of Arizona. Originally from Bufalo, NY, founded in the 20's. They have kept the original recipe that made them successful. The dogs are char broiled to order. Hand cut fries and fried onions to boot.

We visit Ted's once a month for their Hot Dogs/Onion Rings and of Course Logenberry Drink. The line moves quickly, the food comes out made to order.

Maybe they are normally better but the day we were here a bunch of teens were on and they gave me an iced tea that was mixed with assorted sodas and my onion rings were the bottom of the pan stuff being mostly crumbs. I will never return.

I have been coming to Ted's before ASU games for more than ten years now and I have not had a bad experience yet. The food there is unbelievable. They cook everything on the grill right in front of you so you can watch your meal being born. A meal with an all-beef hot dog, regular burger, and fries will... More

Ted's is all-around greatness! The line was long but moved quickly - it's length can be intimidating. The person on the grill will ask you to order while in-line, it's not really shouting but more of a long distance conversation - I found it charming. The dogs were very high quality and are shipped from Buffalo, NY (they claim). The... More
