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...

We definitely appreciate your understanding of how busy and noisy it can get in here, and we're sorry if that ever left you feeling unsatisfied.

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.
