A friend of mine invited me to eat lunch here and food was good but nothing I would drive across town for. He lives overseas and missed this food.

Wife and I decided to try something new to eat in DSM. Went to tripadvisor and started looking at all the restaurant reviews. Settled on Ted’s. Everything is average at this place. We went about 5PM on a weeknight and we were the only customers. The lady was nice enough, so service gets 5 stars. After reading some reviews we... More

Whether sit down or take out, I enjoy Ted's food = I'm especially enamored of its Grecian Chicken Pita sandwich. One of my favorites in town.

Best of Des Moines in my opinion - their gyro is amazing and the service is exceptional.

My wife and I get the gyro with feta basket every time we go here. It tastes great and you never go home hungry with all the sides. Our visiting relatives can't leave without come her, also. Just watch for panhandlers that get you in the drive-thru lane.

So my wife and I had a free night and we were both craving a gyro but didn't want to make it or drive across town. Ted's Coney Island to the rescue. While I don't really dig their A frame building and retro diner decor they're usually pretty friendly and quick. The crowd is usually small and mostly drive through.... More

This is great for every kind of hot dog and the fixings. I would highly recommend for those who like hot dogs but if not, you will be limited.

With a name like "Ted's Coney Island," I passed this place everyday thinking they only had hot dogs, fries, etc and never tried it. A friend twisted my arm to go with her and my taste buds have never been the same! I ordered the Grilled Grecian Chicken Pita for $4.95. It's the best pita in town. It's filled with... More

Let's see, if you order a Tenderloin Basket - you will not be able to walk away from the table. They have soooo much food. All of their food is very good and worth the money. I'm especially fond of the onion rings! Plus the 70's feel at the Ingersoll location adds to it all. Love the silver dome lamps.
