My husband and I have been coming to SPI for 20 years, and we stop at Ted's every single time. We have always been in for breakfast and have never ever been disappointed.

After reading the reviews on Trip Adviser, my wife and I decided to give it a try. I ordered the Migas and my wife ordered fried eggs with bacon and fried potatoes. Our order came in about 10 minutes, and the food was great, as well as the service. Ted's is a nice little cafe and the prices are very... More

Nice little place that always seemed to have cars parked outside. According to the sign, they only do breakfast and lunch. Had breakfast, eggs, potatoes and a muffin with juice. About $9.00. Food was good, cooked the way I like it.

We ate here for the first time last summer and we were looking forward to returning. Ted’s did not disappoint, we ate here every day of our 5 day vacation. The staff was the same, the food is still delicious and affordable. Our waitress was fantastic. Their fajitas are truly award winning!

We eat here at least one time during our annual visits - I never miss ordering the pecan pancakes and this year I also tried the pecan waffle which was equally delicious - also offer to go orders which is great if you are on the run!

Ted's has great food. It has great service and has a nice atmosphere. Every time we go to South Padre we go to Ted's. The pancakes are always cooked perfectly and they always taste delicious! Ted's is locally owned and has great staff. Take your kids and ask for the Mickey Mouse pancakes.

We've been going to Ted's since the 80's, it's just part of the Padre experience. We have to go at least once for breakfast. Is it good? yeah, but not great. Still, worth a try at least once.
