We eat at Ted's at least once a week sometimes more! Super yummy food and the best staff! Ask for Cassie, she's the BEST waitress and while your there definitely try a skinny margarita!

Is there anything bad about Ted's - no. However, is there anything fantastic, I don't believe so. Having lived in Edmond for 2+ years, we just ventured to Ted's for our 2nd time - needless to say, we had the same reaction as we did the first time and our average of one visit per year will most likely continue...

Ted's certainly provides consistent dishes. However, I find that the flavors tend to be more on the bland side of what I am used to or expect from Mexican food restaurants. Each location I've visited has been busy, reflecting their popularity, but I always leave just a bit disappointed.

One of my favorite Mexican restaurants ever. From the Chips and queso to the fajitas everything is very good. Don't forget to ask for the Atomic Salsa!

Steak was fatty and tasted old. Tortilla chips were average, salsa was good, queso was horrible. No flavor to the queso, tasted like out of a can. Staff was very polite.

Sorry you didn't enjoy your experience with us, Stephanie. We use very fresh ingredients, and we're surprised to hear that they didn't taste that way. Normally people love us, and we're disappointed you don't feel the same way. We hope you'll give us a second chance one day to show you we can do better. Regards, Ted's Management More

We love Mexican restaurants, and actually went on a hunt for the BEST fajitas in the Southwest. We drove from Oklahoma through OKC, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Waco, to San Antonio. EVERY restaurant we stopped at for lunch or supper was a highly rated Mexican restaurant. We judged each restaurant for their chips, salsa, fajitas, rice, and beans. Though a restaurant... More

The food is always great tasting and served hot. The condiments are tastey and the sopapillas are amazing. Love to watch the tortillas being made and heated. Great service every time with reasonable cost cannogt be beat.

With so many good Tex-Mex places to choose from, you'd think Ted's would be exceptional since there is always a wait. Once seated, the chips, salsas, queso and home-made tortillas (which are amazing) arrive almost immediately. Before you have a chance to look at the menu, the waitstaff are there to take your order. The food comes out incredibly fast,... More

Sorry you felt rushed while you were dining with us. We're aware that we get busy, and try to make up for that with very prompt service. We understand how that can make it seem like we're trying to rush you along, but we absolutely want our guests to take their time! Our apologies, and we hope we can see... More
