We arrived for a late lunch around 2:30 and had to wait 10 minutes for a table. Service was great and fast. We really enjoyed having the chips, salsa, queso and tortillas for free. The tortillas were wonderful, homemade and thick. Most of us were pretty full from the free items. However, we still enjoyed our meals. I got a... More

Living in St. Louis the mexican food options are limited. Ted's was excellent; it might even be the best mexican food that I have ever had! We had a large group (girls softball team) and there were able to accomodate us.

Ted's has it all. Unbelievable fresh flour tortillas, made fresh and brought to your table, almost too hot to eat! A sweet/not to hot salsa and chili con cueso (cheese sauce) with thin/hot corn chips served to your table as soon as you are seated. The entrees are very large. I suggest that you split your meal with someone, so... More

I absolutely love Ted's...so much that I went twice in the week I was in OKC. The complimentary tortillas, salsas, queso, and chips are absolutely delicious and ending the meal with sopapillas is perfect!

Wow, this place was a great treat for lunch before departing OKC. We arrived for a late lunch, so there was no wait time for a table. The place has very festive and colorful wall and table decorations. Our server, Amelia, was awesome. She came to our table with a smile, welcomed us, asked if we had been there before... More

The best thing here are the tortillas. Hot and delicious...I can go through a ton of them. The salsa and queso are decent. The food is pretty good. It's a reliable, BUSY place. The best reason for me to go are those tortillas though.

Enormous amount of food! Great tasting! Superior service! Very hospitable staff and restaurant is clean. If you go for dinner, plan on getting to restaurant as early as possible. Parking becomes an issue.

We came here for lunch after 2 on a Saturday and still had to wait 30 minutes for a table of 4. I like the fact that you can get steamed pinto beans instead of refried because I truly can not stand refried beans. The enchiladas very nice and filling. I didn't finish them (I ordered 2). The quesadilla can... More

Hot fresh chips with very fresh salsa to start. Nice alternatives to the usual mexican fare. It's generally a wait, but worth it...
