If you are in the mood for the type of hot dog you got at your favorite joint in Chicago, Teddy's will not disappoint you. Hot food, fast service and easy parking.

If you are up for a hot dog or beef sandwich this is a fast and efficient place to stop in. It is family-owned and has been there for years. Food is prepared fresh to order. By far and away these are the freshest fries that you will find. They even throw a few extra in the bag.

This is a quiet little restaurant that you can drive by every day and it looks like other hot dog shops-- but the staff is extremely polite and the food is worth every dime! Everything is fresh to order- no pre-packaged food here.

Nice comfy, cozy atmosphere for a quick meal of hot dogs, Italian beef and sausage. Good prices makes it a great value for quality fast food.

I have been eating at Teddy's since I was a little girl. To me, it was a staple of growing up in Darien. I just ate a lemon Italian ice recently and it was impossible to not think about trips to Teddy's after soccer or softball games twenty plus years ago. If you are looking for a great Chicago dog,...

I stopped with my children when we saw the Italian Ice sign outside. We tried all three flavors of ice. We loved them all and they all had real fruit. It was very good. We didn't try the hot dogs or beef.

Hot dogs are great, Italian sausage with peppers & onions is a force to be reckoned with. Pepper & eggs can be dry and lacking seasoning.

We usually go there for Italian ice, because it is awesome. Their food is great, but we are at a point where we have to watch our food choices. They've got a great Maxwell Polish according to my husband and the hot dogs are very tasty.

Used a Groupon for a Saturday afternoon lunch at Teddy's Red Hots. I love hot dogs. This one was pretty good, but not the best I have ever had. The fries were pretty tasty and nice and hot like they should be served.

Although this is a hot dog (red hots) shop, their Italian beef sandwiches are some of the very best available. Every time that I go in, it seems that the counter seats are mostly filled, as are the tables. Service is fast, time spent in line passes quickly, and the food is competitively priced. Worth return trips
