good old "Ted"


Maura spotted this one on a road trip. It may be acceptable if Ted has since sold the place, so it is no longer actually his...

Yikes! I think maybe Hamburger Shop should be in quotes.

Ted's "Hamburger Shop," meaning run-down shack

the quotes signify that the owner's name is clearly not ted, theodore, edward, or anything that would normally be shortened to ted. most likely he was born cadwalader hasensprung, and picked ted for something recognizable to call himself.

Is "that" in Toledo?

HHMM?
-- "Mike"

I have driven past "Ted's" for my whole life and never noticed the quotation marks! I must be blind.

P.S. Yes, it is in Toledo, on Monroe Street downtown.
