Loved everything we ordered!
Homemade poptarts, chili, meatloaf (roasted brussel sprouts to die for!), Ted Burger, Mocha and Bananas Foster (adult) milkshakes...we left with full tummies and will return to try the other menu items for sure!

I went to Ted's twice - First for boozy milkshakes with my grandma (thumbs up to the Key Lime Pie) at the cute and old-fashioned bar in the front of the restaurant. Second for a full dinner on Tuesday, which happened to be burger and milkshake night, so I tired the smore, also delicious. The BBQ and Southwest burgers were good, the fries were fantastic. We tried the poptarts too, but weren't too impressed. The waitress offered to warm them up for us and they may have been better warm.
The staff was very friendly and the bartender was talkative, prompt, and makes excellent cocktails. It took a while for our server to get us our check at the end of the meal; she seemed pretty busy.

Not just for brunch
It was our first time at Ted's for dinner and when we mentioned it to a few people, most commented that it was probably better for brunch. We went anyway and the dinner was notably great. We had ribs and burgers, which were both fantastic. In fact the ribs were probably some of the best ribs I have ever eaten. We were entertaining a friend from London, so this was a good choice in terms of an upscale American diner experience with delicious pop tarts to go with it. I will definitely go back and the next time for brunch. As an aside, the service was really top notch, super friendly and efficient.

We stayed near Ted's and ate there for dinner and breakfast. Also ran over for coffee ( delicious!) every morning and nightly shakes. The " big as your head" cinnamon roll on the weekends is super yummy. Great experience!

My lunch guest spotted an ice cream sundae as it was being delivered to a nearby table. He decided that he would have one too. I splurged with a few spoonsful of his order, and it was delicious. Very nicely done.

The "adult milkshakes" are the highlight of the menu! Great location, easy walk from capitol hill ..... make reservations.
6/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our party loved the French Kiss from the wine list. Great choice for a warm summer day. Wait staff was exceptionally attentive. Was ver accommodating to our needs. Great energy in the restaurant. This is a DC don't miss!.

Nice Neighborhood Place
We went here before a Nats game and found it to be a nice stop before we walked to the game. We were from out of town and heard about the good reviews. We order breakfast for dinner and it was good and milkshakes were good...home made pop tart not so much. However, for DC area it is worth a visit and prices were moderate.. A nice looking diner

I dined with a friend for lunch. I ordered the Sloppiest Joe and ate it with a fork and knife because I foolishly choose to wear a white dress! The sandwich was yummy and so were the fries - quite nice. I also got a boozy shake - and I combined two flavors: key lime pie and toasted coconut. Delish! Our waitress was adorable and friendly. I'll definitely be going back - so glad this place is in my neighborhood.

A Restaurant With Character!
Excellent restaurant with outstanding service and the menu offers so many incredible choices, you have to plan on several return trips to try them all. If I lived in DC, I'd go there all the time!
Its a great place to meet, eat, drink and socialize and every table has its own outlet for your mobile devices. How awesome!
I give it 5 stars!
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was easy to make reservations and our service was excellent. Everything was very quick and they had our table when we got there (a couple minutes early). The adult milkshakes and regular milkshakes were excellent. all of the food was very good. The only drawback was there were so many good choices for dinner (as all three menus were available) that it was hard to choose. Even though it is a trek for us to get there and the parking can be difficult we will definitely go back and recommend it.

This place was amazing! I had a steak that was out of this world!!! I loved their brussel sprouts! The Alabama Chicken was ordered by some other people at the table. The sauce on top of the chicken was a little spicy for our liking. Their homemade Twinkie and blondie were really good. We purchased some pop tarts, but we have not eaten them yet.
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Milk Shakes are amazing. Disappoint
Milk Shakes are amazing. Disappointed by the pop tarts, but overall, great food!
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I loved it. I did not want a fancy dress-up dinner and chose this due to the great reviews on YELP. There was an order mix up, but it was corrected within a few minutes.
The staff was pleasant informative, helpful, and apologetic for any errors. The food was excellent, the decor was great, my husband in an architect. We will definitely return.
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
got there early on 7:15am sunday and we had a wonderful early morning breakfast - the bottomless coffee is great!
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
A DC Must!
The decor alone is worth a trip to Ted's, but the excellent food and the top notch service make it one of my favorite places in DC.
7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great burgers and shakes!
We went on Tuesday for burger and shake night. Our whole group got the deal! The "adult" milkshakes are awesome too. Don't eat well before going here - you're going to want an empty stomach!
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots of fun, great brunch date and friendly atmosphere, need a reservation but with one it was a breeze!
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, slow service
I was here as part of a large group on a Friday night. The food was great, and the atmosphere fun and laid back. However, the service could have been a bit more attentive. As our group was taking up 4-5 tables, you would think they would want to get us in and out, but after taking our orders and bringing our meals relatively quickly, our server just sort of disappeared. All in all, though, a great experience.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great ambiance. Homemade pop tarts and milkshakes looked delicious. Short rib sandwich was outstanding. A good spot for a greasy brunch or lunch. Service was spotty and food took a while to arrive, but was worth it for the experience.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a fun place!
My family and I visited while on vacation for a week, and our two boys (17-15) loved it. They liked watching the chef make homemade pop tarts, and really enjoyed eating them. They also thought the hamburgers were fantastic. My wife and I agreed with them about the food, and we REALLY liked the adult milkshakes! Can't believe this hasn't been copied a thousand times.
We told our server that we were trying to make a Nationals' game, and she got us in and out in less than an hour. All the staff were friendly and helpful.
Not cheap (four of us ate for about $100, including drinks, tax & tip), but nothing in Washington is, really. Highly recommended for what feels like a truly local experience.

Ted's Bulletin is a great place. The food is great, the service people are skilled and friendly, and the prices are good. My only beef is that the place gets loud -- not a problem for a friendly group, but a problem if you really need to hear what the other person is saying. I would recommend this place -- but make sure you have a reservation (it is a small place).
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best homemade pot tarts ever! I took 4 to go with to Texas!! The best tomato soup ever!
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the second time I have been at Ted's. The food continues to impress me. I would highly recommend a milkshake when you are at Ted's!

Left my phone - and they chased me
I can't say how important it is when the staff of a restaurant (or any business) goes out of their way to do something kind and helpful for the customer, no matter how stupid the customer is or how much the problem was caused by them. This isn't an earth-shaking story, but I left my phone on the table when breakfast was over. It was raining, but I had an umbrella with me. I had made it two blocks away before I heard my name called out, and there was the manager running toward me with my phone. (The truth is that I had even done it once before there, but I don't think this particular team knew that.) So, look, I would have missed my phone within another two minutes and gone back to get it. But I didn't have to. Thank you, Ted's.

My wife and I love Ted's....initial
My wife and I love Ted's....initially we would eat breakfast there before Sunday Nats games. Then we discovered what a great lunch & dinner menu they have. So far I have yet to have a meal there that I thought was just ok.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I think it's my new fave!
I first stopped in for some late night dessert but when I saw the full menu I knew I had to go back. I went back for Burger Night on Tuesday. Everything was delicious. I even got a pop tart on the way out for breakfast the next day. Every employee I have encountered has been friendly and helpful. I'm definitely going to be visiting more.

NATS game warm up
I often go to Ted's for dinner before the NATS nights. It is close to the ballpark and gets you there a little early to beat traffic. The Burgers are delicious and moderately priced. The service has always been good and with a 5:30 P.M. reservation we're always done by 6:30 P.M. with plenty of time to get to a 7;05 game. The food is much better here than at the ballpark and proably less expensive. No waiting in line.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
we were a varied group of eight, ranging in age from 5 to 50.
there was something for everyone! great bar drinks, kids menu, milkshakes to die for (kid AND adult versions) and watching the pastry chef make the pop tarts was a fun experience for all of us!!
can't wait to return and try everything else on that tasty menu.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Smaller inside than I thought. The homemade poptarts were amazing! A MUST when you go. It's like your stepped back in time when you walk into the upscale diner. The decor is almost like you're in a movie. The breakfast was amazing. The portions are a good size, not too much not too little. Reservations recommended. I went Friday morning around 8 am and it was already packed. Will definitely be making multiple trips back.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Classic grilled cheese & tomato soup, meatloaf & chicken fried steak? What's not to love?!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went to Ted's on a Thursday night and made a reservation beforehand. When I got there the table was already ready for us. I had the Bacon Burger with PB and my friend had the chef's special of the night which was a grilled wahoo. Both dishes were perfect. Afterwards we sat at the bar and ate a few poptarts, the coconut, blueberry cheesecake, and bacon poptarts were amazing! I have been recommending to friends ever since!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding neighborhood restaurant
Ted's never disappoints - it knows what it is about. Wonderful, classic comfort food with everything home-made, from pop tarts to the salad dressing. Best grilled cheese and tomato soup combination ever.

Love this place!
White Russian milkshake is YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a large luncheon (about 13 ppl) yesterday at Ted's Bulletin! Everyone had a really great time! We were seated immediately, greeted by our waitress shortly thereafter, and our drink order taken. We ordered the food soon after that, but it did take a minute for everyone to decide from the varied menu because everything sounded good. At no time were we rushed; the experience was just seemless. At the end, the waitress separated our individual tickets so the group could pay separately. For a work luncheon, it was perfect.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall, I really enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. Gotta love the menus there!
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM

The food was very good and our waiter was so nice and helpful! I will definitely be returning!

I have yet to be disappointed with Ted's Bulletin. Everyone is so friendly and the food is delish! Can't wait to go back.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great place with excellent food and bar and a cool and fun vibe. I highly recommend the adult milkshakes and the homemade Twix bar and Pop Tarts.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Retro atmosphere and décor
Retro atmosphere and décor were fun ... the taco salad had too much lettuce and not enough other ingredients. Veggie burger was great, one of best I've had anywhere. Apple pop tart not what I expected but was tasty. My dining colleague asked for medium burger but got it more well done. Waitress, admirably, made him a new burger!
10/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
If the service was as good as the food this would be a TOP star location.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Brunch Place
What we love most about Ted's is that you can get breakfast there at any time. Also the service is always prompt and the servers are always super polite and attentive. We've enjoyed every meal we've ordered there and the chocolate shake is our absolute favorite so far. We will definitely come back here for special brunches and whenever we are craving that amazing chocolate shake!

Chef Jorge Lopez of Malolo BNB D.C.
After 6 months of trying to dine here we got our chance and it was great!!
Have to try your brunch and lunch some day!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for a business breakfast or lunch near the Hill. A recent breakfast was quick and the food and service were great. Highly recommend.
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food was very good and I really enjoyed the bacon and Bleu cheese brussel sprouts. The cornbread was excellent. Would definitely go back.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lunch with a friend...
My turkey burger was so moist and delicious, and the waitress was so friendly and sweet. Ted's is one of my favorite places to eat. Whether I eat in or carry out, I always enjoy my food there.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect food, desert and milk shake
Can't have the other words towards the food, desert and milkshake.

Ted's Keeps outshining
Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner, Ted's is a great spot to hangout and enjoy a wonderful meal in a cool dinner environment. The staff is friendly and it's always a favorite for those who can get a table.
