Best service and food arrives quickly!

We love Ted's. They have the best service and you never wait long for your food. My fav is their queso and chips. Have enjoyed everything I have ordered. The wait can be long which is why I gave it 4 stars and not 5. I wish they took reservations!

I loved that the portions weren't GINORMOUS, & the food was delicious! However, they brought us 5 bowls of queso, which was really bland & flavor-less. And even though it was nice that we never had to ask for a refill, it was over the top. .we left having 2 full glasses of pop. I see this place wasting A... More

Met a business associate for dinner at Teds who suggested we meet there after I told him I needed a Mexican food fix. Premium margarita hit the spot and could not finish the Escondido especial platter it enchilada and tacos despite my best efforts because I did not want to stop but there was just too much food.

There is no way you can leave here hungry. Good food (large portions) and lots of complimentary extras including chips and fresh tortillas (we had corn). Hats off to bartender, perfect patron margarita excellent! We had chicken fajita nachos and enchilada dinner, both good. We were seated quickly and server Connor efficient and friendly!! Will certainly go back.

We live near Ted's and fight the urge to pull in on a regular basis. However it's too good to fight the urge for long and we do go when we see no wait...which means early! The food is fresh and incredible. Get the fajitas and enjoy the meal with some margaritas. You won't be leaving hungry!

The decline of Ted's makes me sad. It used to be an OKC area institution but it's just not awesome anymore. I don't know if they have expanded too quickly or what, but these days it is average at best. My husband hates it and loves Mexican food. I have to drag him there when I'm feeling nostalgic- I keep... More

It's really concerning to hear you feel this way, CrystalAnn. We can assure you that we're still using the same ingredients that you came to know and enjoy, so we're sorry to hear you're getting a different impression. Know that we'll be taking this feedback to our team, and we'd love nothing more than another chance to knock it out... More

Always great service and on busy days they try to get you a table as quickly as possible. The queso and salsa is what brings us back. Freshly made flour tortillas are so good! I always enjoy the cheese enchiladas or crunchy chicken taco WITH papas and corn! Yummy!!!

Talk Mexican food for 5 minutes in Oklahoma City and at some point you will be comparing XYZ restaurant to Teds. Think about it, a Mexican Restaurant name Ted's--crazy. They are not cheap but their food is excellent. Lots of variety. Expect a wait. They also do take out and cater, also very good. Local and most excellent.
