On my way out to a friends house in S. Pasadena, I decided to stop at Ted's and get a burger. Since their smoke house is temporarily out of commission, burgers are all that is available except for a chicken sandwich.
As always, their burgers were top notch as was the hot german potato salad that I got along with it. I also had a cup of Manhattan Clam Chowder to start off with.
While I was there, I was asking the waitress about any progress on their smoke house. She said they are hoping to have it reopened by Thanksgiving. She said everything was proceeding faster than they expected on the rebuild.
That made my day. Can't wait for a nice smoked mullet again.
