Teddy's Red Hots
Teddy's Red Hots whisks diners back in time to a classic American hot-dog joint—and not just because the eatery has been perfecting the italian-beef recipe for more than 35 years. The Downers Grove location exudes nostalgia with neon lighting and an old-school jukebox, and the Darien spot's bright-red barstools rise from a checkerboard floor. Behind the counter, cooks pile their signature 7-inch all-beef red hots with mustard, relish, onions, tomatoes, and a pickle spear. Upon request, they'll add sport peppers, sauerkraut, and celery salt, or they’ll load the links with chili and cheddar. They also sandwich their hot dogs and charbroiled burgers between regular or pretzel buns. Meals are capped off with housemade italian ices, made daily with fresh lemon, black cherry, or strawberry.

Has the best beef sandwich I've ever had..The beef is high quality, bursting with flavor, and they put a generous amount of au jus on the sandwich.Rich K., Yelp, 2/22/12
“$$$$$$ 18.00 for a cheesy beef sandwich, fries and a chocolate malt...ridiculous! ”

“I am very picky when it comes to Italian Beef and especially Combo Beef and Sausage Sandwiches. I grew up in Chicago and there are too many good options, to waste your time on bad ones. The good news is: Teddy's is one of the really good ones. Loved the combo, loves the hot peppers, loves the fries. My only suggestion:: Get some Brewed Iced Tea, you need to have other drink options for people that don't want to drink sugary soda pop. I settled for water :( I would have much rather had a good iced tea. At least Get a Gold Peak Tea Dispenser. I have to imagine it is just as profitable as the pop products. ”
