If you are lucky enough to be one of those people who live in or near a city where there is a Ted’s Montana Grill, then you may already know how good the food is. Fabgrandpa and I have been to Ted’s several times now, and I can tell you first hand that no matter how many times you go, the food is going to be good each time. And, whether you take your family or friends out to dinner, or send them a gift card, Ted’s Montana Grill is an excellent choice for gifting during the holidays.
During our last visit to Ted’s, we started our meal with Bison Nachos. These were on the Starters menu. We ordered them to share among the three of us at the table, but the plate is big enough to order as your meal. The Bison Nachos are a combination of bison chili, pepper jack cheese, and fresh toppings over tortilla chips.
Fabgrandpa chose the meatloaf, again. He loves Ted’s Bison Meatloaf. His meal came with mashed potatoes, an individual Squash Casserole, and a roll. As with most other items on the menu, you can choose beef if you prefer.
My choice for lunch was the Ted’s Bacon Cheeseburger. I chose the bison version, and asked for avocado to be added. Oh, my! What a delicious choice! I asked for roasted asparagus instead of fries with it. Gluten free buns are available upon request at Ted’s.
I wanted a salad to go with my burger. There are several salad options on the menu. I chose the Wedge, which is made with a wedge of iceburg lettuce, bacon, and vine ripened tomatoes.
Finally, we ordered one slice of Wildberry Cheesecake to share. This cheesecake was so good! It had a berry sauce, and some whole blackberries as a garnish.

This year, Ted’s Montana Grill raised $303,303 through its partnership with No Kid Hungry, which is the equivalent of more than 3 million meals for children in need in America. Funds raised through the nonprofit’s Dine Out for No Kid Hungry initiative exceeded Ted’s Montana Grill’s 2015 fund-raising goal of $300,000.
Dine Out for No Kid Hungry is the largest opportunity for the restaurant industry to unite in support of ending childhood hunger in the U.S. Ted’s Montana Grill guests could participate in the Dine Out fund-raiser August 31- October 4 at all 45 locations. Patrons who donated $5 or more received a $5 gift card to use at Ted¹s Montana Grill in the future. For every dollar donated, No Kid Hungry can provide 10 nutritious meals to a child in need.
“We have passionately supported the No Kid Hungry mission for the past seven years,” said George McKerrow, CEO and co-founder of Ted’s Montana Grill. “Our goal is to use our platform in the food service industry to change the fact that 1 in 5 kids cannot count on their next meal. We’re grateful for our partnership with No Kid Hungry and will continue our commitment to making healthy meals accessible to children and students in our communities.”
Ted’s Montana Grill has partnered with No Kid Hungry since 2008, raising a total of $834,680 to date, or 8.3 million meals for kids.
