I learned about Ted's Hot Dogs in Tempe from an airline magazine. Sometimes these magazines hype places so my expectations were somewhat guarded. What I found was the best all-beef hot dog I have ever had. Lean, skin-on, and charcoal grilled, the jumbo beef chili dog was sumptuous. The chili was tomato based and somewhat sweet and Ted's house-made hot... More

I used to prefer Nathans but now that their stores are shut I prefer Teds. Nothing beats their coal grilled dogs. I like them simple with few toppings. Quality meat for sure. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices on the food. I think shakes are good but a bit pricy.

Old school cooking, with real large wood charcoal, and great hot dogs/sausages. Not the cheapest but not expensive. Well worth the experience and quality.

This is a good little hot dog place but there's other just as good options. We had their jumbo dog, reg dog, white hot, cheeseburger Fries & onion rings too. Everything was very good except their onion rings they were all clumped together and not very tasty. Daughter had a milk shake (orange) that she really liked. We will go... More

Whenever I travel to Tempe I make it a point to get to Ted's. Although you can get there and be in line, it moves very quickly, hot dogs made to order and everything is hot and fresh. I love the all beef hot dogs and the french fries. Prices are reasonable and service is always done with a smile.

I wish my dad was still around to taste these. He was a hot dog aficionado, to be sure! After a local museum tour, this really fit the bill. I got a standard dog, my husband got the all beef jumbo, and when they said they made the onion rings daily- NOT TO BE MISSED! Lots of fee condiments, ask... More

Ted's is a college town hot dog stand. They grill their dogs, to order, and there is a wide choice of dogs and additives. The onion rings are hand made and are great, as are the malts! Spyro is from New York and orders his dogs from there. Mostly college student staff and they are trained by Spyro - the... More

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
