I live in Texas but originally from Oklahoma. Ted is a staple in the state. The location was nice an new, staff was extremely helpful and the food is amazing. Some of the best Mexican food I've ever had. A must try for everyone.

Knowing that you've been a resident of both Oklahoma and Texas, two states known for their Mexican cuisine, and find ours to be the best you've ever had is the greatest compliment we could receive. We can't thank you enough, JaMiah! Anytime you're back in our neck of the woods, know our doors will always be open for you. Until... More

Well, it's surely disappointing to hear you question the quality of our dishes. We can assure you that we only use the freshest ingredients, certainly not anything that has come from the frozen food aisle. At the end of the day, these are our recipes, so when we receive comments like these, it really hits home. Know that this is... More

From start to finish you will not be disappointed. The meal starts with complimentary handmade tortillas, queso and salsa. The tortillas are excellent and the salsa is super fresh.

This was recommended and it did not disappoint. From the Chips, Salsa, Cheese Dip and the homemade tortillas...great way to start. The Manager walked over and welcomed us and brought us over a dish of the house Guacamole Dip that was awesome. Ordered the Taco Dinner, along with the Tortilla Soup. Finished off with the sopapillas, very delicious. Will recommend.... More

Ted's is no longer new to Broken Arrow and certainly not the only Med food in town. But, they serve up nice hot dishes, good portions and fair pricing. Their homemade tortillas are a must!

We arrived with a Family group, and because of the size, were told it would be 45 minutes. 45 minutes came and went. No Table. We inquired and were told it would be about 15 minutes more. Fair enough. 30 minutes after that, we inquired again. Told we were the very next party. No we weren't. All this despite having... More

This review was incredibly disappointing to read, John. We apologize but we do not take reservations, and for that we are deeply sorry.

Serves Tex-Mex style Mexican food. Every time we go there it is the same great food. Entrees are $10 and up but comes with complementary sopapilla and enough appetizers to fill you up before the main course gets there! A bit of a wait at peak times but worth it.
