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

Good ole Buffalo, NY food. From the Sahlen hot dogs to the Loganberry fountain drink and everything in between.....plain good comfort food. Lunch time is rather busy so be patient but worth the wait.

I used to be a big fan of Nathan's until I had a Ted's 'all beef' hotdog yesterday! Wow, just great tasting hotdog I've ever had. Very friendly athmosphere, great service, too! I will be back for more!

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.
