People rave about this place but to be honest I have had better Mexican . The best part though are their homemade tortillas. They a delicious. Their food is not awful by any means, just doesn't live up to the hype as one of the best.

It seems like no matter when you go to Ted's they are always busy!! You still get good food and great service. The items on the menu are a little pricey for the type of food. They should really look at adding on since the restaurant is quite cramped. Love the home made flour tortillas!

Teds is fantastic, the only problem with them is that there is usually a long wait during high peak times. However, in my opinion it is worth the wait. We have lots of Mexican restaurants near here and have tried them all, we always go back to Teds!!

need I say more? Always a busy, bustling place because it is a favorite for townies to take guests. Everything is hot, fast, and fresh. If you have to wait on a table, going to kitchen window to receive a just-made tortilla keeps you amused!

Been to Ted's several times and the food is always good. This time what really made our meal outstanding was our server. I am pretty sure they gave her to us for a reason. Large group and special occasion. She was awesome. Literally knew the menu front and back. Very attentive, didn't need any reminders. Of course I didn't get... More

It doesn't get any better than Ted's. Their chips and salsa are to die for. Their guacamole is exceptionally exceptional. Their fajitas are beyond yummy, as I'm sure everything else on their menu is. Best of all....best customer service, especially when dining in.

I make sure to go here every time I visit Edmond. They have great food, large portions, and good service. The best part is they have a window where they will serve you fresh, warm tortilla's that you can dip in cheese and/or salsa. Yum!

Ted's offers a variety of tasty Mexican dishes in a cheerful setting. Tortillas are made behind a viewing glass and are fresh and fabulous! The serving portions are abundant and the food is always delicious! Don't miss their margaritas and sangria.

If you love good Mexican food, this is the place for you. This has to be the best mexican cuisine ever. The service at this restaurant is over the top good. Your glass will never be empty and you will never run out of chips, salsa, queso, or tortillas. If you like really spicy salsa ask to try the Atomic... More

We arrived 1o minutes before closing and they were more than willing to seat and serve us. We had excellent food and our waitress was very nice and attentive.
