Despite its lack of internet presence, this neighborhood dive bar actually gets packed full of locals on a pretty consistent basis. Ted's has cheap drinks, greasy bar food and a fun, friendly vibe. Plus, when you buy a bucket of beers at a discount they give you tickets that you can redeem at a later date so no High Life is in danger of being left behind.
