“Great lunch for 10”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

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.

“Great Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Arrived here and it was rammed. Were told by the friendly staff there would be a breif wait and why not get a drink in the bar attached. This was a great idea as in there they served awesome cocktails and draught beer in massive frozen glasses.

We were then seated in the restaurant area and this being our first visit we were given a sample of the fresh avocado dip they make in house and this was delicious. The waitress provided us with complimentary torillas, salsa, dip and wraps all free. However do not eat too much of these as they will fill you up with no room for your main course as they are so good.

The service was prompt and accurate, friendly and attentive. The main course we had were beautiful and so tasty. The restaurant was packed with couples and families alike enjoying this wonderful food which was so cheap it made the whole dining experience a joy.

If travelling to Tulsa you have to stop by here for a bite to eat its spot on.

“OMG....come starving!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Excellent service with our waiter Luke. The manager even stopped by our table 2 times. The place was VERY busy but well worth the wait. Food arrived quickly & was delicious with huge portion sizes!
