Not only is the food authentic and the portions large, but the meal is preceded by individual servings of queso and salsa to accompany the chips. the beers are cold and the service is very good. Treat yourself.

Well if you're from Oklahoma City and you're in Tulsa don't expect the food to be as good as it is at the heads at May in Oklahoma City. Not really impressed with the wait staff for the food. Just average not great.

My daughter-in-law and son raved about Ted's, so we ate there on an occasion when we were in Broken Arrow a few months ago. I happened to be in town again over the weekend and ate there again, and I was not disappointed. Service is very good here. I was greeted immediately at the door when I walked in and... More

I thought it was good. But no better than any other Mexican food place. The staff was wonderful and kind. The hostess was rude and distant. And the food was "ok".

Based on recommendations from friends, we tried Ted's for the 2nd time. Once again very disappointed. The service was slow to get our food and they were not really busy. When it arrived at our table it was not hot and really it had little flavor. The salsa was good and had a nice flavor but other than that -... More

Sorry we didn't live up to your expectations. Most people really enjoy our place, and we're disappointed you don't feel the same way. You should definitely expect well-seasoned piping-hot food, and we're sorry if we dropped the ball on this. We hope you'll give us another chance so we can show you we can do better.

My friends & I often visit Ted's but tend to do more talking than eating. The staff is nice and the food is okay. What we like most, though, is the free chips, queso, and salsa that we can enjoy while we chat. When we don't eat from the menu they charge us a very nominal fee for what they... More
