Being from Chicago - I miss the neighborhood places with the gyros and hot dogs... but Ted's help ease this longing. Their food is good, quick, and fairly priced. You order at the counter and seat yourself. Nothing fancy, just a good quick meal on the run.

I was starving for dinner and all the restaurants were packed and all the fast food places had long lines. Ted's had no cars in the drive through, so I pulled in. I should have realized there were no cars for a reason. The chili on the coney was one of the nastiest things I have every tried. The fries... More

We love Ted's for gyros. The gyros meat, which is a specially grilled lamb is done just right, not too dry and not too spicy. The sandwich is in a fresh pita which is soft and warm. They add their homemade creamy sauce (with chopped garlic and cucumber, I think) on top and you can have tomatoes and onions on... More

A locally owned place.... again its about expectations. Some great values on a Coney Island style hog dogs, Chicago style hot dogs, lots of other sandwich choices. There lunch baskets include your sandwich - fries - onion rings and coleslaw tis a meal. Not a health food place a working persons place.

I LOVE hot dogs and chili sauce makes them even better. My husband and I were on Ingersoll and dropped into our old spot for a coney. The counter staff was friendly and quick prepared our order. We ordered one coney and one coney basket to share. The basket came with an ample serving of fries (hot and crispy) and... More

Has to be the best gyro I've ever had, and the Chicago dogs are excellent as well. Great fries and onion rings as well. Don't miss it!

Good cheap food at a reasonable price. Onion rings are awesome, gyros are very good, and the various hot dog options are the best you'll find in the Des Moines area. Free parking, easy to find, free Wi-Fi.

I decided to write a review of Ted's after I noticed it was ranked lower than Hardees in TA, which is not cool at all. My husband and I are big fans of Ted's - they have great Gyros and Falafel, and a veggie pita, plus their Greek salads are fantastic. They also have your basic burgers & fries, and... More

The buy 5 and fries deal for (I think) $10 was a good deal. The kids got plain dogs. I got chili. I thought the chili was rather bland...but I prefer something a little spicier. The fries rocked so that brought things up to 4 stars. I'd go back to try the other offerings.

The lamb gyro's are my all time favorite and ONLY at Ted's. They are loaded with meat and incredibly tasty.
