Always a great fast family friendly place to eat. Been going for years and has never disappointed. Sauces can't be beat they are the perfect addition to any dog. Always recommend using the vinegar for fries and lots of cheese sauce.

The Ted's footlong, charbroiled over charcoal Sahlen's hot dogs are the best in hundreds of miles. So good, we had to buy 3 pounds, dry ice and a cooler, to being some home! Don't miss this place, you'll be sorry!

This is the best hot dog around. Whether you are a local or from out-of-town, you must come here. A Buffalo tradition!

We stumbled across Ted's after hopping off the interstate to grab a bite to eat. We will definitely make this an intentional stop the next time we are passing by Williamsville.

Had the hot dog and onion rings while the kids had fries and milkshakes with their hotdogs. One also had the grilled chicken sandwich. Everyone was pleased.

Salen's Hot Dogs char grilled and to die for when in Buffalo. Fries and onion rings are sweet. But it seems a bit pricey to me.

Exited the 90 to grab a quick bite to eat. Ended up at Teds and was happy with our experience. My father ordered 3 jumbo beef hotdogs, onion ring and fry. Mom and I asked for tap waters. With a feeling of slight disappointment I told the girl asking "the works" for my hotdog thinking hopefully the toppings will add... More

When ever I return to the Buffalo area I have to stop for lunch at least once at Ted's. Any of the restaurants is fine, I usually go to the one on Transit beacuse it is closest to the airport.

Very boring menu. Staff didn't seem interested in being there. What i got was not what I was expecting in fact it was quite a letdown.
