Good Tex mex food. The service was good. The food was even better than expected. The salsa and cheese dip are good and refills are plentiful! However don't expect a quiet meal. It was very loud. It is very popular so you need to go early or late to be seated quickly.

Hearing that everything from the food to the service went over well with you is like music to our ears, Margie! We hope you can forgive the volume of the crowd in here. We'd love nothing more than another shot at providing the five-star experience we're capable of! Hope to see you again, Ted's Management More

As always at any Ted's I've visited, the food was fantastic, the servers fun and friendly! It was my friend's first visit to Ted's, so they went out of their way to bring her samples of lots of customer favorites. But be advised that if you are looking for a quiet place for conversation, this isn't it--at least not on... More

We have been going to Ted's for years now. The service is always great. We've always had ample amount of food. We keep going back because the food is good, service is quick. We've rarely had to wait. When we talk about eating Mexican food, we always plan on Teds.

I love Mexican food, but Tex-Mex is my favorite (over both traditional Mexican and West Mex). And Ted's delivers the absolute best in Tex-Mex! My favorites are the chicken fajitas served with their creamy corn and Mexican rice. Every table gets complimentary queso and fresh salsa--another personal favorite--as well a cinnamon sopapilla with honey to finish off the experience. But... More

I don't know how they do it, but they always provide great service and good Mexican food. Always crowded so you have to get there early, but its well worth the wait if you have any. Chips are light as a feather and the entre portions are sufficient for anyone. Our favorite lunch destination or special occasion meal in Edmond.

I had heard great things about Ted's so I took my parents, who were visiting from Texas. Almost as soon as we were seated, we had two baskets of chips and each had individual bowls of salsa and queso. These were replenished often. We were never left without. Also, throughout our visit, we received hot, hand-made tortillas! By the time... More
