“Decent, nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

There is nothing wrong with this place, but there is nothing special either. if your looking for decent affordable texmex you will probably be satisfied with this place. I have always had decent service and food. This place is the definition of average.

“Doesnt live up to hype.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Ted's wasn't bad by any means, but it was just average mexican food, tasted like any other tex-mex place. The tortillas, and salsa were good. The prices are a little steep for standard mexican, $12-$13 for one taco, rice and beans or enchilada dinner (one also). Wait staff was very good, got there early (5pm) no waiting. Save money and go to On The Border for standard mexican.

“An excellent restaurant for the Tex-Mex experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We went to this restaurant to celebrate a family birthday. We were greeted pleasantly and immediately seated. The server for our table noticed that I was wearing a university shirt from another school which was playing a football bowl game. When he got a chance, he would give me an update of the score. We were treated to excellent food which added a festive environment around us. Several members of our party had Margaritas and said they were excellent. At the close of the meal, the wait staff sang their version of Happy Birthday to our guest and placed a sombero on her head so pictures could be taken for future memories of this event. The food prices were very reasonable for the occasion and we plan to return.

“First Class Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

What's not to like? Food quality is tops; service is top flight; management is first class. Mexican set-up is perfect. Corn tortillas delivered in a heartbeat. Always packed, but due to effiecient operation, wait time is minimal.

“Excellent food, great service, reasonable price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Ted's has some excellent Mexican food. You get free chips, queso, salsa and tortillas. Food comes out very fast and the wait staff is friendly and attentive. The plates are not cheap, but there is plenty of food so you can split with a friend or family member and then it is very reasonable.
