We tried Teds this trip and will definitely be back! Breakfast was reasonable and huge portions. Food is prepared to order, everything homemade. Staff was very nice and really seemed like they enjoyed us being there. Warning cash only so be prepared!

I had an enjoyable Philly cheese steak (even though no Philadelphian would have recognized this as their famous local delicacy). My wife enjoyed her beef fajitas. A simple place with simple food at reasonable prices. Friendly service.

Heard good reviews, but coffee was Folgers quality, ours eggs were cold and biscuits were fair. Price is average. Service is good.

Reminded me of an old time diner. Nothing fancy, but clean with good service. Simple fare, but tasty at a fair price. Been there 3 times.
