      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

      Almost every time I work in Detroit I try to stop at Telway......great sliders, cheap coffee, great fries, tasty donuts and some of the most entertaining fellow customers one could ever hope for. Every visit is an adventure!!

      Visited on Thanksgiving, because Burgers are better than Turkey when it comes to actually cooking the food. ¬†Fast service, plus a Motown tradition for decades, this is a must stop if you're visiting the D.

      So as a disclaimer I ate here completely sober, 2pm on a Sunday. My friend has been telling me since I moved to Madison Heights a couple years ago that I need to eat here. I was hungry driving by and so why not give it a shot? I had a cheeseburger and a coney dog. I would best describe the cheeseburger as an artesian white castle burger. Same bun, same lack of flavor and same steamed texture. Coney dog was more of the same, at least the dog was cooked on a grill rather than boiled. If it was 2:30am and I had a belly full of jameson I would probably order a whole sack of these to maximize my morning of regret for all of what just happened.

      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.
