Best grilled hot dogs anywhere in the US. Had the spicy sauce on a foot long with half onion rings and half fries, a great choice.

Anytime I am in the area I try to stop here. I love the italian sausage with onions and peppers. You gotta have a shake to wash everything down. The dogs are good but the sausage is my fav.

We regularly stop at Ted's Hot Dogs to and from Niagara Falls. They are simply the best hots (and hamburgers) in the Niagara area. Perfectly cooked red hots with the special hot sauce. Good (albeit greasy) fries and onion rings. When you need a hot dog fix, go to Ted's

It is totally casual but, the food is AMAZINGLY YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The onion rings are good, there are toppings for your hotdog, and milkshakes are good.

Attended a function at my son-in-laws nearby high school and he wanted us to experience some of Buffalo's greats. Ted's was a fun place to eat. Very family friendly. Food was plentiful and hot dogs cooked perfectly on the grill.

We visit Ted's about once a month, always enjoy it. The dogs are tasty and the fries are freshly cooked up for you. The milk shakes are the old fashioned kind made out of ice-cream. Love Ted's.

It is not good for you. I would argue that there is nothing on the menu that could be classified as healthy. But who cares!!! It is a hot dog tradition in town and everyone should try it. Get the onion rings and share them - because the portion is insane.

I recently had the opportunity to eat here for the first time while visiting in the area, and had a great experience. I really enjoyed being able to watch my food being prepared throughout the process. The staff were very friendly, and everything tasted great! Will definitely stop in here again in the future.

I had to go to Ted's to try their charbroiled hot dogs and am glad that I did. I am a hot dog lover especially when I pair them with some golf watching, which I did today. You watch your dogs being grilled so you can let the cook know when they look just right for you. I liked my... More

Ted's has char broiled Sahlen's hot dogs and they are the BEST! If you've never been to a Ted's, put it on your bucket list. There are several locations in Western New York. Inexpensive and lots of other great choices and sides.
