Ted's Coney Island is a Des Moines tradition. I've been eating at Ted's for 40 years, first when it was downtown, and now Urbandale. My favorite is the beefburger and the Coney. The dining room is great for small or large groups. You order at the counter and they will call your number when it's ready. Very casual dining with... More

I was all excited and craving greek food and I ended up having the Ariston's deluxe gyro (hot and spicy). Well first off, if that gyro was spicy i would hate to see nonspicy. I didn't taste any spiciness at all. Don't get me wrong, the gyro was good, but it wasn't as requested. Ok next, the fries and the... More

What a great find for lunch. Something for everyone. Greek / Coney Island/ Iowa tenderloins and more. If you get a basket it comes with fries, onion rings and Cole slaw. Order at counter but they bring food out to your table. It was fast and the food was great. Good good choice for lunch. Will only be working in... More

Ted's Coney Island in Urbandale or in Des Moines makes the BEST gyros we have ever eaten! The pita is grilled and perfectly toasted and then heaped with generous portions of shaved lamb or tender bites of chicken on a bed of greens. The tasty cool & creamy tzatziki sauce completes the melding of flavors! We moved to Pennsylvania three... More

The original Ted's is on Ingersoll closer to downtown. Going to this one is a little easier and the menu is about the same. Gigantic. Many, many choices. What you come away with is a good hotdog with all the fixings you could possible want. There are many other items on the menu as well. In and out quickly with... More

I have normally just gotten the gyro basket, had a chance to taste the burger, It is delicious as well. I think this beats bbops to be honest. Can't wait to try some other menu options.

We love this place. The gyros are perfect and generous in toppings. The counter staff are courteous and friendly. The family runny this place have been in the Des Moines restaurant business forever. The atmosphere is casual upscale for a Coney Island. I highly recommend this Des Moines institution.

Best Gyro I have ever had. Food is always perfect and the prices are very reasonable. Both locations are tremendous and you don't notice much difference between the two.

The Urbandale location of Ted's has no nostalgic feel to it. Its part of a strip mall. I don't know what would lure someone into this Ted's location as this restaurant is well hidden. Generally speaking the best restaurants always seem to be. You want greatness? You will find it. I had been a big fan of Ted's Coney Island... More

So we got on a gyro kick several years ago, and finally honed in on Ted's to get that fix. The burgers and tenderloins are very good, but the gyros are where it's at. Nice soft pitas, generous amount of meat and feta, topped with amazing tzatziki. If you spring for the deluxe gyro you get some tomatoes and lettuce... More
