This place appealed to me before I tried any of their food. I stumbled upon it immediately after getting a mediocre 'Papa Johns' type of pizza from some place the hotel recommended, but the visual appearance of the Telway is so retro Americana I couldn't resist putting the pizza aside. This is a cash only operation. No tables! Bar stools... More

Enough said... The staff was okay, but the food made my stomach flip in protest. I'll never go back, personally.

This place has been here for so many years, and I think that speaks volumes as to just how good it truly is. Great burgers - they still advertise four for $2.50. And the coffee is great too. As a matter of fact, the coffee is so hot it takes a while before you can even take a sip. I... More

Good Burgers - much better than White Castles and bigger too! Fries & Milk Shakes are much better as well. Very clean & service is always fast.

Awesome burgers. Steaming hot. Best you can get for the money. Perfect simple burgers 5 times better than White Castle and a better atmosphere. Also this place may be small and old but it's so clean the stainless shines like a mirror

It is always the same people working there every time we visit. You can't be traveling on 696 and not stop in here. Our family has been coming here for decades. There are very easy to get to and they have a simple pick up window or you can dine inside. Either way, you won't be disappointed. It is nothing... More

What can you say about the Telway except that it is a legacy around the Heights. It's funny how the people that have moved out of Michigan tend to always comment on how much they miss the Telway....
