Ted’s downtown store to open Monday

Ted’s Hot Dogs long-awaited downtown store will open Monday.

With the opening of the store at 124 W. Chippewa St., the grilled wiener chain will return to the city where it was born for the first time since 1998.

“After 17 years away, our return to the city is well overdue,” Peter Liaros, co-owner of Ted’s, whose father, Ted Liaros, started the business in 1927, said in a press release.

“The history of Ted’s is rooted in Buffalo, and we are extremely excited to once again offer our customers in the city the food they’ve known and loved for nearly 100 years.”

Besides digital technology to help speed the ordering process, the downtown store will introduce a new menu item: sweet potato fries, the release said.

The new downtown store will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 10:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. There will be 50 seats inside, and space for 50 on a side patio.

The first orders will be taken at 10:30 a.m.
