For some reason Ted's is thought to be the " best" TexMex in OKC. I disagree. Not bad, but overpriced for nothing special about it food.

Brett, though we're happy to hear you've enjoyed dining with us, we're concerned that you haven't found our food to be anything particularly special. We hope we'll get the chance to welcome you back again soon to prove ourselves. All the best, Ted's Management More

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant. Service is always outstanding and the food is great. The only downside... wait time can be long at times. Need to plan your visit appropriately.

So glad to hear we're your favorite, David. Thank you for the support! We have a superb staff here that definitely deserve credit for their work. I'll be sure to pass along your comments. As for the wait time, we do apologize for that; hopefully it's not an issue you deal with on every visit. We appreciate your patience, though,... More

What I don't understand is why so many people are willing to wait for a table to eat here. My disadvantage in finding anything to like at Ted's is in moving here from Texas where we have the real stuff everywhere. Some people tout the free queso and sopapillas. Free queso=not much flavor. We won't be going back.

Coming from Texas, you definitely know great Mexican cuisine, so I'm terribly disappointed to hear we let you down. Serving up authentic and delicious dishes has been our goal since 1991, and I always like to follow up when I hear we fell short. I hope you mentioned your thoughts to your server, and that you'll give us another chance... More

Better than average Mexican Restaurant, if you want a "safe", mass-market restaurant. The food is good, the service efficient, and you probably will be full when you leave, If you aren't looking for more authentic Mexican food, this is a good place to go.

Ted's is not worth the hype they get, but it is fairly good Tex Mex if that's what you are looking for. They are just the same as many other Tex Mex restaurants in the metro. They lack exciting salsa and can be rather pricey.

We've got to say, it's pretty disheartening to hear you find our food to be only "so-so," Doug. We always strive to set ourselves apart with our quality of food and service, so knowing you've felt we provided nothing above average is really disappointing. We're sorry to see you've felt so underwhelmed, but we know all it would take is... More

I have always loved coming to Ted for lunch or dinner. But since they changel the menu they don't have much of a variety, so your limited on the choices. The flour tortillas used to be so good, but they changed those also. I am hoping they change things back.

While it's great to hear we've had such a committed guest in you, Julie, it's disappointing to see you haven't been liking any of the changes we've been implementing. We can assure you that while the menu has changed, we still offer everything we used too. Also, our flour tortillas are the same as they always have been. Know that... More

While not true Mexican this is a very good Tex-Mex. The lines are long (a testament to the food's quality) and the fresh tortillas are wonderful. Service is always very good, no matter how long the wait. If you want to avoid the lines, go before 7 (we go before 6:30 and rarely wait except for the weekends).

The food is really good and the atmosphere is typical Mexican Restaurant. Service is good. It is a busy place and pretty noisy at times. Not a fast food restaurant with regard to food. This is really good Mexican food with a variety of choices. We go there often.

It's always packed so the earlier you get there, the better. Wait staff are great as is the food. For some reason, most Mexican food lovers either Love Ted's or Hate Ted's. I don't know why??
