Although Ted's doesn't take reservations and is the new "hot" place in this shopping mega center, our large party of 10 was gracious accommodated and made to feel so welcomed by all members of the staff and especially our server, Nina. The complimentary specialties are amazing with warm, wonderful baskets of chips and several kinds of salsa. But the hit at our end of the table was the marvelous flour tortillas which somehow stayed hot and tasted fresh off the griddle. Real butter pats are staples on the table so we made delicious buttered tortilla and salsa bundles and so spoiled our appetites before even ordering our entrees. Choices of lunch and lite lunch entrees as well as items a la cart were appreciated. Most of us had various kinds of enchiladas and were very happy our dishes. Complimentary sopapillas were offered to those who could manage. Our happy group felt welcome to linger and encouraged to do so. The only negative was the very loud and intentionally off-key happy birthday song happening all too often so that we began to cringe when we saw the servers gather around a table.
