Best char broiled hot dogs in wny

A Buffalo institution, Ted's has the best hot dogs. Cooked before your eyes on a charcoal grill, and then dressed with the toppings of your choice on fresh rolls. If you are not a hot dog fan, they also cook hamburgers and chicken breast on the grill. Good onion rings and fries. Some outdoor... read more

In the late 50's I grew up with Ted's Red Hots, by the Peace Bridge on the West Side of Buffalo. Now in the 21st century, the tradition continues with one of the best places to go in WNY to enjoy comfort food. Putting everything on the Red Hot is the best!

If you are into hotdogs this is the place for you. Seems to attract quite a following which at times is difficult to fathom. My kids always enjoy the dogs.

Whenever I come home to visit family Ted's is a must visit. Great hot dogs cooked on real charcoal. The French fries are great but it is all about the hot dogs. Great pickles to accompany. We do not like their onion rings but that is a personal matter, they do cook them fresh after being floured. When in Buffalo... More

Brought the whole crew in for dogs. Line was long and with little kids in tow it wasn't our best move. But they all loved their hats and milkshakes and red hots.

Ted's is so much better than typical fast food. There is a charcoal grill. Everything I have had there is good and made to order - hamburgers, hot dogs, onion rings, fries. A Buffalo institution!

Love to eat lunch at Ted's - inexpensive and always great quality. Milk shakes, dogs and fries are consistently good.

This is a Buffalo area place to go. Whenever friends that left the area come back to town this is a must. Very fast service. Food cooked to order right in front of you.

I,ve been going to Teds for decades...generally the food is very good, but tonight so so. When you have teens working they sometimes would rather socialize than concentrate on the customer....end result...condiments messed up, not paying attention to drink orders, and burning the rings TWICE tonight ! The place is spotless as usual. I will always go back, but have... More

Every time we have their dogs we try to figure why these are better than anywhere else. They are cooked over perfect charcoal, and rolled and sliced to perfection. Can't beat them and nothing else compares with these Salen's dogs.
