Teddys has the Best Beef Sandwiches and hamburgers and it is always a treat. When my brother comes from out of town this is what he always wants! Worth splurging for this place.

Pepper and egg sandwich excellent but only offered Wednesday and Friday during lent. Have tried the burgers chicken sandwiches and dog and fries. Never been disappointed. A little pricey but get what you pay for. Good as carry out or a quick eat and leave

Although there are some tables, this is more of a take-out restaurant. Great burgers and the fries were yummy. Very wide selection on the menu. Hot dogs and beef sandwiches were tasty. Multiple flavors of Italian Ice. Service can be friendlier.

Hadn't been in town for a few years. Stopped in and found nothing has changed. Great dogs, Italian beef and the best fries ever. It's been a guilty pleasure for a long time.

Teddy slow cooks his own beef with secret seasonings. I like the sandwich dripping with ketchup and hot giardiniera. Sells Vienna beef hot dogs, home made Italian ice mmmm, plus, plus. Ask George for a "Super Boston" ice cream.

Teddy's is the place for Italian Ice! They maintain a very high fruit to ice ratio for their treats so the flavors are always intense. My wife loves the lemon which is always available and I usually go with one of the three rotating flavors...More
