Gone to Teds on few occasions and have never found any of their dishes to be very good. Kept returning to give them a fair try to impress us, never happened. Can get better mexican food at most fast food chains. Their enchiladas are bland with generic sauces, their fajitas are fair but are skimpy with their portions, and the... More

Friends brought us after saying we had to go here. In addition to the normal chips and salsa that nearly every Mexican restaurant brings to the table, here they also bring homemade flour tortillas which are delicious, quest, and some pickled veggies. We just ordered fajitas to share since you can get full on everything they bring up front. Lastly... More

The parking lot is always full at Ted's, and I really do not know why. Generally when you see lots of people at a restaurant, it equates to good food...not in this case. The salsa is ok, but for me, that's where a pleasurable dining experience ends. The servers, the ambiance, and the presentation are all ok; but when I... More

Have only been once as I travel monthly to Tulsa & am not a big fan of eating in restaurants alone. This place was an exception. Very friendly staff who took good care of me.

The chips are light, airy and fresh. Nice selection of salsas. I had the "must try chicken tacos", and they were very good. I had their top shelf marguerite, and it tasted good but very light on alcohol.

We went to the Ted's in Oklahoma City years ago so we were excited when this one opened in our city. Food is always good - plenty of it.
