Great food and great service! Ted's is always busy, but the wait-staff help each other so the service is always great. Love their homemade tortillas.

Tex-mex great! Always busy, but we usually get our food to go now. It is a loud place but really good. Service has always been excellent when we do go there.

Don't be in a hurry at Ted's. The food is great. The service is above par. It's always busy, noisy, crowded and you will have to wait. We went at 5:00 pm and had to wait 40 minutes.

This place is generic, white people mexican food. The food is good; not excellent, not bad, just good. I despise the tortilla window. It is very unnecessary and pretentious. It makes it seem like a human is on display at a zoo. Why do the people have to always be hispanic? There are a lot of white people that work... More

This is alarming to read. We are a team here at Ted's and it's a shame to hear that you feel we've portrayed ourselves otherwise. The idea behind the window is to display the craft of making fresh, homemade, tasty tortillas. Additionally, it's extremely disappointing if you've been met with anything but friendly and attentive service. This is not the... More

Ted's is always amazing everytime I visit. Great food, and great service. Never had an issues here. If going on a Sunday after church you'll have a little bit of a wait. But while you're waiting you can get a drink and a freshly made hot tortilla. yum!!

Great flour tortillas and chips but after that the entrees are not very good and there is usually too long of a wait time!

I don't get why this place is so popular; not bad, just bland. There are other Tex-Mex restaurants with much better food. Nice view of the woods.

Ted's has good food and good service. Sometimes there are long waits but they seem to be well organized. Condiments are excellent and almost anything on menu is good. I like the burrito and my wife usually gets enchiladas.

Come hungry, great food and lots of it. Make a reservation, come early or be prepared to wait. Unlimited tortillas, caso, chips and salsa.

Is there anything better than hearing you've always come hungry and left satisfied, George? We're thinking not! It's really great to know we've got a fan of our tortillas, queso, chips, and salsa in you. We definitely hope you won't be a stranger and we'll see you back for many meals to come!
