“Try the atomic salsa. The setups are AWESOME! Excellent food!”
First tried Ted's in Oklahoma City ten years ago. Went at a time expected to be least busy at 2:30 pm Saturday. Still had to wait are few minutes... and for good reason. This Mexican style restaurant is wonderful. I know Mexican food is very personal. What one may consider to be great is below average to someone else. We're pretty picky as we've been satisfied with much less than half the Mexican restaurant recommendations we've gotten.
Ted's setups are awesome and they keep coming! Fresh made flour tortillas (you can watch them be made) that are superb along with corn tortilla chips, very good tomato based salsa that's got a little heat to it, a very uniquely flavored queso, and be sure to ask for the atomic salsa. It's not the fire-breathing hot but if it is to you you'll want to work through it because the flavor is so delicious. It is made with avocados, tomatoes, serrano peppers, and poblano peppers as near as I can tell. It puts the little sweat beads under your eyes. Refreshing if you're into hot stuff. We always are full before the entrées come out. I'll eat a few bites and take home the rest. So we eat Ted's twice! Prices are a little higher than other Mexican restaurants in the area but the servings are more than ample. Service has always been excellent when we visit. Servers are attentive w/o hovering. It's a special night out for us.
