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.

While we eating there for breakfast, we were already planning going back the next morning. I got the pecan waffles and they were wonderful. The people were also very nice. You can tell its a regular spot for locals. Wish it wasn't so far away.

Great breakfast and cheap! Get there early and you'll still probably have to wait a bit as it is always full, but well worth the wait.

Ted's is known on the island as the place to go for breakfast. It is very good and fast. It's only open till mid afternoon but seems to be busy most of the time.

If I lived on the island, I would come here everyday, just like the locals do. It's clean, the wait staff is friendly and the food is great. I tried the fajitas (their specialty) and the boyfriend had the breakfast tacos for our first trip to Ted's. The home fries were cooked to perfection, as was the steak for the... More

We stopped in today for breakfast and we pleased with our decision. My wife ordered a pecan waffle and I had a basic 2 egg and sausage plate. Both were very good. They also offer a number of Mexican choices. Decor is basic bit food is good. Our meals were about $5 each. Recommended.

Me and some friends were in South Padre for spring break and luckily we found this place! Very cheap, good service, and good food. Typical diner fair but we were never disappointed and if I'm ever in the area again I'll be sure to stop by.
