WOW! There's no question the food is fresh and made to order but let's still remember it's still in the category of fast food. For the prices and the al carte menu where you get dollar signs $ for each add on, it gets to be a little ridiculous. Let's be real, if this place was downtown and their rent... More

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.

I have stopped here two or three times in the last month as my son has soccer practice right down the street. The hot dogs are pretty average, although you can get them in a pretzel bun. The hamburgers are great. The best in the area. The fries are also very good. It is a little overpriced. And the Italian... More

When ever I am in Chicago, I always have dinner at teddys red hots! The Italian beef is outstanding... Also they have a great combo sandwich... Half beef and Italian sausage. They also have wonderful French fries! Also try the Italian ices! It is a very small restaurant with a very friendly staff!

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 Red Hots is justifiably famous for its Italian beef sandwiches and red hots. And if you visit, you should definitely sample both. The red hots are juicy, with just the right amount of tangy flavor and fresh condiments to set them apart from the plethora of red hots available elsewhere. And what sets apart the Italian beef is the... More

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 like watermelon, raspberry, strawberry, or blueberry. My favorite is black cherry and I just tried... More

I went looking for a great hot dog and my son brought me to Teddy's. It's a nicely decorated, clean restaurant, not too crowded, but tables seem limited. There are TVs on to watch the games...they may be a bit too loud. When I spotted Polish sausage on the menu, I was hooked. The Maxwell style includes grilled onion and... More
