Pricey, but...Great Service, and Great 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. It is ALWAYS loud, and the seating is often very tight. The servers are typically quick to respond to not only your requests but will... read more

There is only one other place in the city of Tulsa where you can get shredded beef tacos, their food is good and the amount is incredible.

We always love the complimentary chips, salsa, and tortilla's and queso. We have yet to order a dish that we did not like. The staff is usually quite friendly, but at busy times, they are matter of fact and like to rush a bit, sometimes forgetting drinks or other items. With that said, we love Ted's and know to go...

Tulsa has a few Mexican places that I really like. Ted's is one of them. Ted's focus's on mexican like a chain restaurant, not quite as authentic but really good.
