Department of Deliciousness, September 2017 The Department often goes off the beaten path to obtain simple yet classic foods. Telway System has been in business since the 1940s and restaurants do not persist like this unless they are delicious. We visited late in the evening...More

This is old school Detroit burger place, very small, a little grungy, in a bit of a sketchy neighborhood. Not bad in the daytime. Used to be dozens of similar places all over Detroit area. Like a White Castle, but has its own taste and...More
Every time I am back in Michigan. Telway is must! The Coney is good but the sliders are amazing! The place has not changed since I was a kid many years ago and I hope the never do. So many late nights after a long shift , "Five with everything and a large black to go" was the perfect ending to the day. I will always love this place , the food is super cheap, amazingly delicious and the staff has always been AWESOME! Don;t come here expecting so super trendy restaurant, it is what it is and that is perfect.
I really wanted to like Telaway but it is just a really poor slider place. The place is an old school slider place with seats at a counter and a carry out window on the side. The problem is that the quality of meat in the slider is really bad. Also my patty was over cooked and very dry. I would recommend going to little bros in Royal Oak or hunter house in Birmingham if you want a good slider.
Telway has pretty good chili dogs but Brays is better. Not crazy about the hamburgers though. Fries and onion rings are good.
