    Amazing breakfast! Biscuits and gravy were to die for, the breakfast sandwich on Texas toast? Genius. And the pop tarts are such a yummy treat. Call ahead to put your name on the list.

    Ted's has transformed the Pop-Tart into legitimate pastry. They fill handmade, almost cakey crusts with homemade jams, fresh berries, brown sugar, and peanut butter and bacon. Read more

    Shakes come in a dozen traditional flavors plus a handful of adult concoctions like the White Russian and bananas Foster. Don’t forget to slurp one down with a homemade pop-tart on the side. Read more

    This ain't your grandma's shake. While admiring the retro decor, belly up to the bar to order one of this eatery's adult milkshakes, spiked with liqueurs and other sophisticated additions. Read more

    Came here for late breakfast. Friendly staff. T.U.B.S. sandwich was awesome, and oh, the pop tart . Brown Sugar Cinnamon is the way to go! Hubby said the peanut butter bacon one was pretty good too!

    Of course, must try the pop tarts (salted caramel is the best!). Before indulging, recommend the fried chicken: succulent, and perfectly seasoned.

    Grab a seat at the bar, its the best seat in town! Split the Big Mark Breakfast and a Baileys Carmel Macchiato with a brown sugar cinnamon pop-tart - best start to the day!!

    Ted's is a comfortably classy American eatery outfitted with art-deco accents taken from the 1928 Philadelphia Convention Center, including a front area decked with a green marble-backed bar. Read more

    I spoke too soon. The Millionaire Bar, Ted's rendition of a home made Twix bar, was amazing. Also... They make their own Ho Ho's! I mean seriously! Could this place be ANY BETTER?!

    Lots of good options. Love the gumbo, and the peanut butter bacon burger. They will tell you the cinnamon roll is amazing, but other than being huge and pricey, it's nothing special.

    A staple in a Capital Hill diet. Great sandwiches and dining menu. You feel as though your negotiating the next great piece of legislation just be being part of the crowd! Do it!

    The White Russian adult milkshake is pretty good, but dangerous. Also, all the burgers can be made with a veggie burger, which is nice.

    Do a Sunday with friends but make it an early reservation or go later like 1:30 2...the crowd seemed to die down and you still can enjoy the food, company, and nostalgia.

    Best milkshake I've ever had, pop tart was ok! Too much salt in the soup but overall highly recommended!

    Heath Almond. From the bar, you can see workers mix up 16 shake flavors, including s’mores and caramel macchiato, while adults can indulge in the White Russian and Nutty Professor boozy versions. Read more

    The backyarder burger and a poptart, can't go wrong! Check this place out at a time when Eastern Market isn't open and you won't have to wait for hours.

    Ted's has some inventive burgers here including Ted's 'Burgh (an homage to Pittsburgh & Parmanti Bros.) and Drew's Peanut Butter Bacon burger (note: keep your drink close by, this thing is sticky!)

    The spiked milkshakes are a must-try. Weekend breakfasts are kid-central. Call ahead before you go and ask for the wait time. On weekends expect wait times of 45 minutes to an hour. Read more

    I had the Peanut Butter Bacon burger. Great size but ask for the peanut butter on the side. They put too much peanut butter on the burger! Fries are not that great.

    Plight of the Pumpernickel says the ribs dinner is a great value. You get a plateload of tasty pork ribs and two sides for less then $20. Try the mac and cheese for a rich, filling side. Read more

    This Art Deco space recalls a simpler time, when meatloaf, Sloppy Joes & grilled cheese sandwiches were enough to satisfy a hungry soul. The retro vibe is deliberate. Try the spiked Thai coffee shake. Read more

    Two words: homemade pop tarts! It's kid-central on weekend mornings but breakfast is served up all day. Follow it up with a spiked milkshake and you're set for the weekend. Read more

    I love this place. Has a real vibe of an era far gone. They played "singing in the rain" during dinner and the ambiance was great. Got the southern fried steak and have to have spiked thai coffee.

    The adult milkshakes are amazing but you can still taste the alcohol. "Dirty Girl Scout" tastes like Thin Mints. Key lime is also awesome

    Best Pop Tarts ever! But why does the Pastry Chef, Rebecca, always make those weird faces? It's the Latino worker bees that do all the work anyhow...

    It brings all foodies to the yard, S'mores Milkshake $7 (5/5 NOMs). It was like drinking one giant chocolate bar of deliciousness.
