As long as I am not sitting there waiting for an hour, it's a very pleasant experience. I really don't like waiting, so you might call ahead to see about the wait times first (as we will usually do). And it is unfortunate that they won't sit you until your entire party is there, which sucks if... read more

Ted's has been a long time Edmond staple. The food is good. Lunch is where it's at! Generous portions. They prepare what locals expect from a Mexican establishment. Dinner prices are a little high, but the quality of food is worth it. As for the dining space...another matter. It is a bit too crowded and difficult to carry on conversation... More

We're glad you like our lunches! We do our best to prepare great Mexican dishes for you, and we're happy you appreciate it. As for the dining space -- you're right, sometimes it does get a bit crowded, and we're trying to work on that. Your feedback is very important, so thanks for letting us know. Hope to see you...

We always enjoy going to Ted's in Edmond. The staff is friendly and the food is good. There is usually a wait, but we are always offered drinks and there's a TV to pass the time. Love the hot sauce !

You end up waiting for 20 minutes or more each time you go, the food isn't anything special, not any particular meal or food item I remember or ever crave. Tortillas, salsa, and queso are good, but can get them anywhere.

David F, Owner at Ted's Cafe Escondido Edmond, responded to this review

We certainly wish you'd gotten a better impression of us, Dustin. We'd like to think a wait time is indicative of a great fan base and delicious food, but we're sorry to hear you don't quite feel the same way. Another shot is all we'd need to show you the five-star experience we're more known for! With heart, Ted's Management More

Ted's is not what it used to be. Family of 9 gathered for dinner. 8 adults and one baby chair. The tables that were put together were suitable for seating 6 adults for a comfortable dinner, not 9 people. We all had to fight for table space for drinks and plates. My plate was hanging off the edge part of... More

We had a large party (23, with 8 being under 9 yrs). The server was great and kept the tables drinks, chips, etc full. The food was hot and fresh. I always ask for the atomic salsa. The guacamole is pretty good and the salsa is fresh. The tortillas are a good texture and warm. I enjoy the chicken Monterrey... More
