Telway is one of the original slider hamburger joints. It is right up there with White Castle. What you see is what you get. If you have a jones for the greasy, perforated burgers that you will taste for hours and which your spouse will...More

Overheard a couple of colleagues at the meeting talking about this place. Thought would try it out before heading home. Excellent idea!! Had 4 cheese burgers fries and shake. Chocolate is the only flavour. My mate had the same. Imagine white castles on steroids 🤪...More

Tellway has been in business for a long time and they always have very good hamburgers. Different than most other places.

Went after hearing rave reviews but ended up a little disappointed. I tried a slider and a Coney island. They were ok. The onion rings were the highlight airy and delicious. Ok if in the area but nothing special.

I stopped in here for the first time the other day. I had heard the burgers were outstanding. They certainly are. I will definitely be back. The chili fries were good too. Even treated myself with a chocolate malt.

I grew up eating these burgers, and moved away in 1978. My family still lives in the area and every time I go back to visit, I make at least 2 stops for my burger fix. Telway opened in 1944 and has a loyal following,...More

Telway has been here for many years. We usually get them late at night when we want a extra late night snack. The corner of John R and 11 Mile just wouldn't look right without Telway there.

They've been around for decades for a reason. The grill's years of cooking onions and patties lends a character to these small burgers that can't be replicated elsewhere. Inexpensive and possessing all the flavors anyone could want from a hamburger, this is worth visiting and...More
