Was expecting some really cheap lunch specials was was very disappointed with the prices. Very expensive for lunch. Peppers have lunch specials for less than $7.00, there was nothing here cheeper than $8.99. Monterey wrap pictured below.

I have enjoyed the opportunity to eat at Ted's several times. The food is always exceptional. The service is always outstanding. The hot salsa with chunks of avocado in it is excellent. I have tried numerous things on the menu and they all are excellent. This is why I feel Ted's is the best Mexican food in the Midwest US.

Went to the one at Tulsa Hills and the manager (a man)was extremely rude and hateful. I saw him belittle and berate staff. I don't know if the food was any good as I never ate. Once I saw how staff was treated, I knew that I didn't want to eat there. Unhappy staff usually don't put their best foot... More

This place was highly recommended to us, but we were really unenthused by it. The wait is ridiculous, but it is nice that they can accommodate large groups. They give everyone cheap, gross queso (like fake nacho cheese) and salsa to start with. We had to wait a long time for our food and there were two in our group... More

Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. Received a seat instantly, even with it being packed. The tortillas were the best we'd ever had and service was phenomenal but that's where it ended. Neither of us liked our entrees. We both ordered something different so we could try the other's but both were very off putting and we couldn't get past... More

We went to Teds with our family from out of town. There were 10 of us and we got there about 930. Our server was amazing. He kept us happy constantly filling our salsa and queso. Which is complimentary by the way . Many Mexican restaurants charge for the queso now. Teds is awesome by the way. My wife and... More

We got warm, thin, crispy chips with cheese and salsa to start as everyone does. My wife asked for spicier and our waiter brought us three different types. We turned down the fresh made tortillas they offer. Very attentive waiter great food and a visit from the manager just to make sure we were taken care of.

Food is good, a little expensive but not too much. Hand made tortillas are awesome, sopapillas also are very good, which are complementary. We had pork with green salsa and tamales, very good. Also had had fajitas, very good as well
