Went there today for the first time—great cheeseburgers, and the double hot cheese (that's it, just melted cheese slathered onto a bun) was delicious. Not crazy about the home fries, but, hey, the burgers were enough.

    I need to get down to this place. I've heard good things like from your report and I've heard from others that the burgers is just laughably bad. I'll find out for myself!

        I recommend that you, at least, order it with salt & pepper (or at least with salt) otherwise you are going to be eating a no-salt (or low-salt) burger that is somewhat lacking in flavour.

        The specialness of Teds (and remember its primarily a hamburger joint - not some heaven-kissed miracle shack) comes in the environment & the cheese. It is unique and I certainly enjoy it - but I think some go a little overboard on its merits.

          "Heaven-kissed miracle shack"--very funny! Is there such a shack in our fair state?

            Go for a cheeseburger and cheese potatoes.

              I just like to ensure that over-exuberant expectations dont ruin a good meal.
