'This Capitol Hill diner (on Barracks Row near Eastern Market) is a clever nod to a bygone era. Owners Mark and Ty Neal--also behind D.C.'s Matchbox restaurants--named the joint after their father, a West Virginian who was the unofficial "cook of the neighborhood." The old-timey throwback feels like the real deal here; art deco details, like carved marble door frames and metal air vents, are salvaged from the Philadelphia Civic Center circa 1928. Tables--salvaged former doors--are set with folded dish rags and a newspaper-like menu that features comfort food classics such as milkshakes, meatloaf and grilled cheese with tomato soup. Breakfast items such as short stack pancakes and home-made pop tarts are served all day. '- Lauren Sloat at Citysearch

The food is always good, but on this visit the restaurant ran out of fish. I had to change my order twice in order to find something that was on the menu. This location is much smaller than the 14th Street location. We were also seated near the kitchen so there was so much traffic walking backing and forth by our table.
My thoughts on Ted's Bulletin, get their early if you want the salmon before they run out and try not to get seated near the kitchen. The food is good! Try to the popcorn shrimp for the appetizer and you have to get the homemade pop tarts for dessert.

Rather you have an adult milkshake or a homemade poptarr or both you'll enjoy every sip and bite. The menu is great and the portions of this oversized comfort food are just right and more.

We had a group of six, but two reservations (one for four, and one for two). They were able to sit us all together, which illustrates TB's great customer service. They also found ginger ale for my Dad, which was awesome. The Pop Tarts are always a treat, but the squash was the star of our dinners!

Really good! The vanilla shake was all that I could ask for and the spinach salad was very well prepared. We shall come back!

It took awhile to get our food, but it was prepared the way we had asked and tasted good.

Great comfort food. A colleague and I went for breakfast. She had an egg and a pop tart, both of which she enjoyed. I had the yogurt parfait, which was far better than I was expecting, and a shake, which is always good. Service was fine.

I have been several times to this location. I am never disappointed with the food or service. Definitely make a reservation as the lines can get pretty long on weekends or at traditional meal times.

I came because of glowing reviews, but was underwhelmed by the breakfast selection. The food was okay, but seemed a bit overpriced for what it was. $17 for breakfast and coffee is a bit much. I'd recommend going for lunch instead.

Unfortunately this place no longer does reservations on the weekends, which was a huge disappointment. The wait can be unbelievable! But it's delicious comfort foods with a twist, at a great price. I love the brunch and that they provide you your own carafe of coffee. I keep coming back here over and over, I just come much earlier in the mornings than other places so I don't have to wait as long.

I invited an out-of-town guest to join me for dinner at Ted's Bulletin in Barracks Row. When my infant daughter knocked over my delicious Heath and almond malt, the waiter Jaime wouldn't let it ruin my dinner. He cleaned up the mess, which was everywhere, and got me a new malt before I could even think about it. That's great service!
