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.

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....

These are original sliders thin patties, onions,pickles ketchup,mustard and a smashed bun all wrapped up in paper. I think it was 4 burgers for 2.50 the place has seating for maybe 5 people so I ordered mine to go. I'm... More

Used to live near Telway before moving out of state 10 years ago. Just went back for a visit and Telway was a MUST. Their lil burgers are simular to White Castle, but like it was made at home.
