It's time to write a review on a restaurant we go to often, a food landmark in Oshawa, Teddy's Restaurant and Deli. As cozy and comfortable as a trip to Grandma's house (with the same huge portions of food), this place has been around forever and ALWAYS has a lineup during mealtimes!
Find out why, what to expect when you visit with your family and the dessert you HAVE to try... we even include a great recipe of it for you!
Details: Teddy's Restaurant and Deli, 245 King Street West, Oshawa, ON, (905) 579-5529, no website, additional 81 reviews found at Restaurantica in case you don't trust ours...
Ambience: Having been around since Clean Mom was a child (which would be ___ years ago, age entry edited to protect the writer...), Teddy's has developed it's own kitschy, unique ambiance with Leafs memorabilia mixed in with antiques and other collectibles. There's always a line-up but at least there's a couple of TV's to watch and lots of stuff to look at. Inside, booths abound in this 150+ seat restaurant.
Kids Stuff: A large menu with colouring on the back, the page is big enough (and the food is served fast enough) to suffice. Used crayons provided.
Kids Food: Lots of choices for the pickiest of kids. From turkey to spaghetti, from hot dogs to pancakes, your child is sure to find something they like... and the prices, you'll like! A cute idea is their free sundae to kids who finish their meal!
Parents Food: Great selection, decent quality, HUGE quantity, great desserts. Clean Mom had her regular turkey dinner with all the fixin's for $11.95... delicious! I tried a sirloin steak and it was just ok. The dessert that Clean Mom always orders is the Homemade Coconut Cream Pie with fresh whipped cream ... you HAVE to try it!

Coolest Thing About Restaurant: Unique atmosphere, quantity of food, prices. Worst Thing About Restaurant: Quality of food is average. Overall Experience: There are a lot of reasons why our family, and most of Oshawa, are repeat clients. From the decor to the food, you won't leave bored or hungry. Total cost of meal (tax and tip included) was $44. Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 (Teddy's image from Finnohara.com, pie image from allrecipes.com)
