Ah, Buffalo. As Ewok pointed out, it's like bizarro Rochester. Whereas in the Roc we have hot dog places that boast fat pop-open Zweigle's smothered in region-specific meat hot sauce, Buffalo has long, thin Sahlen's with a region specific hot relish sauce. It's like the most opposite one can get with, um, hot dogs and hot sauce. Also, in the Roc we like to serve up a thicker french fry (usually crinkle cut) or better yet home fries and mac salad with our dogs. In Buffalo they do the shoestring fries.
Also, they do their onion rings a little differently. In the Roc, you'll usually find a battered onion ring, but at Ted's they serve 'em breaded. My opinion on this is a little biased as many of you know Western NY separates into Rochester and Buffalo people with only the Bills holding us together. So, I won't be offering a star point review here. I goddamn love meat hot sauce. I actually really like Sahlen's hot dogs cooked out on my grill at home, but at a restaurant I expect the bigger, juicier Zweigle's bang for my buck. I like thicker fries and always feel let down by shoestring ones. However, what I will say is the onion rings are amazing. The breading is a little lighter and soaks up less grease than battered ones, so you get a more balanced taste experience. If you're in Buffalo, check this place out. Oh, and top it off with an Anderson's frozen custard: it's like a bizarro Abbot's.
