they have GF buns, but don't seem aware of cross contamination. Regular buns were toasted in the same place on the grill as the dogs. Didn't know that onion rings contaminated fries.
Basic hotdog on bun with ketchup is the safest route here. No toppings no sides no fries. Not bad flavor but the gf bun is thick.
They changed the gloves without us asking, and I asked for a few extra things to be extra careful and they were very accommodating. My cc sensitive kids were fine. They lost one star because there is limited menu options. We end up with only a hotdog and a drink.
I had a bad experience two years ago at the Teds on Sheridan but today’s service was amazing. They changed cooking utensils, cleaned the grill, changed gloves, and got condiments from the back that had no chance of cross contamination. They advised me that the fries were not gluten free but the milkshakes were. I am as definitely pleased with the service and care provided today and my stomach enjoyed it too!
Love to visit Ted's when I am in town. First visit since my celiac diagnosis. I was excited that they offer gluten free buns now so I could enjoy the full hot dog experience. The server was careful and changed gloves and the bun was wrapped separately. It was hard to pass up on those great smelling onion rings but it was still worth visiting!
The GF menu is individually packaged GF rolls. They toast rolls in toaster NOT on grill, so grill should be "clean". Staff knows to ask about changing gloves when GF is ordered, which is good training on Teds part, but Day we were there staff member was very put out and made big deal when doing so. Happy to be able to have a hot dog w my family but could do without the attitude
4/13/17 Tried a cheeseburger on a gluten free bun and it was great. I watched the bun come out of a plastic wrapper and the employee change gloves before handling my burger. GF bun was soft and very good. French fries are not gluten free. 4/16/16 I've always loved Ted's hot dogs, but this was my first one since going gluten free. The gf bun was not very good. Taste of it was ok but texture was not soft like a normal bun. Maybe it was stale.
Packaged gf bun, which I appreciated. But when the girl took it out, she hadn't changed her gloves or taken any precaution about where she was placing it. Definite cross contamination possible if you don't explicitly tell them how to handle. I'm sensitive, not celiac, so I didn't end up with any terrible issues.
The owner started offering gf buns because of a family member diagnosed with celiac. Very awesome. Be sure to ask for glove change and tell them from the start any special instructions or need for gf bun. French fries etc are NOT gf.
Delicious hot dogs! The buns are from Kinnikinick I think. They almost always remember to change gloves when you ask for gluten free, on occasion you have to remind them. A char-broiled hot dog is a fabulous thing. I tried to order fries once, and they promptly told me they're fried in the same fryer as breaded stuff.
Ted's is in no way Celiac safe. However, There are precautions that can be taken. Ask them to change their gloves. Do not get any condiments from behind the counter, since they dip the spoon in a vat and spread it on the burger/dog, often times directly onto the bread, and the spoon goes right back into the vat. There are some condiments on the side. Since I like ketchup only on my hotdogs, I used the pump ketchup near the seating area. Since I just ate, I will update this, if there are any reactions.
I have been there a couple times in the last few months and haven't had an issue yet! The rolls are all individually wrapped and they put them in the microwave instead of the grill. I always keep an eye on the grill person though since they have different staff there so often.
This is the 1st I ever went to this place and it was a good hot dog they have Udi's gluten free hot dog buns that are $1.50 extra each, and ask if you want them to change their gloves before they dress your hot dog
Not bad use Udi's rolls which contain calcium sulphate which is gypsum hence the drywall taste associated with Udi's rolls, They should switch to another company for rolls that actually taste like rolls and not charge an extra 1.50 per roll.
So nice to see a great locally owned establishment making accommodations for their GF customers offering Udi's buns. Hot dogs are chargrilled & tasty! Chili is gluten free, too; however they do not have a dedicated fryer for their French fries :( FYI: Make sure to remind them to change gloves before handling your individually wrapped bun.
