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.

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.
