Not the same as the other Telly's
OK, this Telly's is not the same as the other. The chicken sandwhich is not char-broiled for example and the buns are different. I honestly prefer these buns to those used over at the orininal. These are some kind of whole-wheat, oatmeal thingies and are very tasty. The original Telly's uses sesame seed sponge dough buns. Good but nothing special. Other differences exist too. The O Rings are a close copy but the flavor note is slightly different. The fries are also different. The Telly's on Bouguet Canyon Rd. has crispy fries that snap when you nibble into them, these were rather limp and slightly mealy like those at an overly busy Tommy's. The parking is better but the area is nasty looking. Don't get me wrong, the restaraunt is very clean. It's just that the shopping center in which it's located is slum city.

All in all, a not-so-close copy of the original. FWIW, I chose the word "nibble" above because the word "b_te" was deemed unacceptable. Go figure.
Pros: Clean and courteous, fair prices
Cons: Food not as good as the original
