      I recently ate at Telway based on burger reviews in Detroit. I’m glad that I did. Telway is a local burger joint with much history. There is no where to sit. The burgers arrive fast and are tasty. The value is great as burgers only...More

      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 the best joint for late night sliders and chilli cheese fries. Nothing fancy, but who really needs fancy after a long night of partying. Oh yeah, please uber or taxi if the libations got the best of you.

      Never can go wrong at Telway! Greasy burgers to satisfy drunk cravings. Highly suggest cheese burgers & add hot sauce.  Beware cash only.  Grab a donut to go! Youre also bound to make a friend while there.

      I have never eaten here before, and after a Yelp Event, I figured I would swing in here for a bite to eat. I was pleasantly surprised to dine at this fine establishment, and actually ran into two other Yelpers while here that went after the event as well!

    I didn't know what to get, but going strictly off Nick's review, I knew I was going to like it.  I went with 3 burgers and an orange crush.  I didn't realize just how big the burgers were, and probably should have only gotten two.  Oh well, I ate them all, and really enjoyed it.

    Now mind you, these are what I call "old school" burgers. Stuff from way back when that's so bad for you, yet tastes so good.  Stuff that they served back in like the 50's. Before we cared about health.  Now we all want top notch beef that's organic and free range. Definitely not here.  H

    I can't describe what it was like, but it was fat greasy goodness.  The staff here was working hard, and the prices were dirt cheap.  For all 3 burgers with a pop, I was out the door $5.50.  I do admit, seating here is tight at best, so be prepared to sit on top of one another. Not much room up in this piece.  I did end up paying for my food afterwards, which I thought was odd, but hey, whatever works.

    Overall, I really liked it here. I obviously couldn't eat here all the time, but it was well worth the trip.  Will be back when I'm on this side of town!  Also, this place is strictly cash only! Please make sure to bring some bills so you don't get hosed.
