Food was great and the customer service was excellent. Our server was so awesome, we didn't have to tell her anything she just did it.

Food is good, fast at lunch, fresh and a variety on the menu to choose from. The waitstaff are always courteous and very attentive. I don't like that there is ususally a wait to get in on a Friday, or any evening, but I can understand why. Their drinks are good too. :)

Everyone always raves about this place... But to me it's just not that great. They are always packed so maybe it's just me but I usually try to go somewhere else for Mexican food.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. They had free queso with the chips, which most Tex-Mex restaurants don't do. The food was well prepared and had a great taste and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

I have been here before a couple of years ago and it was much better. With co-workers at close to closing time. The service and food were both just average. Not nearly as good as I had hoped. The enchiladas were cold and had been sitting too long before being served. The margaritas were just ahhh... What bothered me most... More

My husband and i stopped in here for lunch on 8/18/14. This restaurant is nicely decorated and the service was awesome. They bring you out free cheese dip and salsa for your chips...as much as you can eat. They also bring out all the free homemade yummy tortillas you can eat. After your meal they bring you out some free... More

The last night in Norman we decided to have a group dinner with some of the other gymnastics parents, there was about 14 of us. We were seated in the time promised us by the hostess and the employees were very friendly. The waitress was super sweet and we even had a server assistant. The waitress took our drink order... More

On first looking at the menu, I wasn't impressed with the prices (a little expensive), but when you factor in how much food you get, it is well worth it. The food was all prepared well, and they are very open to variations. Not very spicy for Mexican, but overall, well seasoned. When you sit down, you get the normal... More

The absolute BEST Mexican food! The wife and I have been visiting Ted's in the OKC for 16 years now. We have never had a bad meal or a bad experience at any of the restaurants. This was our first visit the the Norman location. The food was wonderful, but we had the best service ever. The place was packed... More

I always like Ted's. It's not overly spicy like some Mexican places. The prices are reasonable. Service is usually good.
