I don't get why everyone RAVES about this place.. I know of at least 4 other Mexican restaurants that are better than Teds in the Edmond area...... Also, don't go there expecting to get right in, I've been a few times and each time there's a LONGGGGGGGGGG wait and the food was just ok...

It's a shame to hear you left with this impression of us. We'd like to think the wait is a reflection of how many fans we've got, but we're sorry you didn't feel the same. Comments like these really aren't the usual for us, so we'd love nothing more than another chance at showing you the five-star service we know... More

So, for Mexican food in Oklahoma Teds is so-so. But I dont get why you would spend this much money (and long waits for a table or take out) on very average Mexican food. You can hit any number of authentic places that are far better. The service is quick and good, but the food is bland and expensive. Go... More

4 people with a pleasant surrounding and terrific food. the chile relleno with shredded beef is excellent, there are many items that are not listed on the menu and all you have to do is ask for an item and most of the time they will accommidate.

We have been going to Ted's for years, we drove many miles to eat there before they came to NW Oklahoma City and now Edmond. We are not sure how we get our food so quickly, but our orders are always correct, hot and yummy. Chips and Salsa are a big deal to me, and Ted's has the thin chips... More

Teds has great food. They include a Tortilla, chips, salsa and queso bundle with each order. They recently added shrimp fajitas which were great. I am not big on Mexican food, but I really like Teds.
