      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

      Hands down the best drunk spot when heading home from royal oak. Wish they didn't just take cash since WHO CARRIES CASH?!?! But their food, although greasy and artery clogging, is absolutely delicious!!

      Went here for a quick snack last night. It's a small place and I really love the look of it at night--lots of glass. There is a small L-shaped dining counter with about 7 stools and then a few more stools facing outwards.

    We ordered a cheeseburger slider, fries, coffee, and a couple slices of pie. Prices are super reasonable here. All of that was under $8.

    The waitress was decent and filled our order quickly. The pieces of pie are precut, we had blueberry and banana cream. Both were good, especially the banana cream. The coffee is very weak tasting, just like the Michigan Ave location. The slider was so-so tasting, a little plain but the pickle gave it it some flavor. The fries were cooked well, maybe a little too crunchy, but still good with ketchup. I actually asked for some mayo for dipping my fries but for some strange reason it's against restaurant policy. Really people?...its mayo.

      I've only been here once, I'll never go again. I cannot understand the hype of this place. They service was good, fast, and polite, the people were not the issue but I only ate one of their sliders and omg. I thought for sure I was gonna die. Never have I ever been more bloated from such a small amount of food in my entire life. My stomach hurt for the next 24hrs. Yuck.

    Those sliders are so damn good with the pickles and grilled onions. The coneys are decent but that's not what you should order from here.

    This place looks like a renovated cargo train. It's VERY small inside and not the prettiest place to eat.  I like small and cozy though. It makes it easier to pig out on sliders without being witnessed.

    Service was decent during my visits. That girl was cooking takeout sliders for multiple people as well as for me.

    The food usually takes 10-15 minutes to cook. I wish they had pre-made sliders so there would be less of a wait.
