I have made a many treks trying to find great Mexican around the area - have yet to find great, Mexican comfort food, but for typical Mexican fare this came closest to what we wanted in dining.

Me, my wife, our son, wife and 2 year old grandson ate here on Sunday, July 5 for lunch. When we entered we were told that there was a 10-15 minute wait for a table. I was more like 6-7 minutes. We were seated and drink orders taken. While we were waiting on our water to be brought to our... More

Probably some of the best service we have ever experienced. We had to wait 30 minutes becuase they were so busy but it was definitely worth the wait. Bar is next to the waiting area so you can grab a drink while you are waiting.

Food and service is excellent! Always quite a bit of wait time to be seated, tho; guess that is a good sign the food is worth it??

We have eaten at several Ted's and the food is consistently good. We had a group of 9 and our server was excellent. He really took good care of us and made several recommendations that were very well received. Definitely would return.

Where else can you get unlimited free queso! The salsa is so fresh and the servers just keep it coming. The beef fajitas are amazing, but my personal favorite dish is the chile relleno with shredded beef, topped with Ranchero sauce.

You've got some great taste, Susan -- the Chile Relleno is definitely one of the house favorites! We're honored to have a fan in you, and we hope to be lucky enough to keep you coming back for many meals to come. Much appreciated, Ted's Management More

Queso is delicious and the margaritas are huge but not overpowering with alcohol so they can be enjoyed.

Natalie was the best server ever! She kept the gratis appetizers coming and mixed a mean Margarita. Homemade tortillas, chips, salsa...again...OMGosh! The atmosphere was fun and the food was delish. This is a must-do for some great Mexican food!

We have eaten at Ted's many times over the past 5 years of living in Tulsa. Although it is a bit expensive, we consider the quality of food and service that we get.
